Happy Friday! To celebrate, we’ll be sipping this fabulous red wine called Monte Quieto Mendoza Reserva.  If you like a good Malbec, then you’re in for a real treat!  Because it’s made up of more than just Malbec grapes, it is really different & delicious.

This wine is a Bordeaux blend that’s smooth with notes of spices, black currant, and blackberry.  A Bordeaux Blend, at its most basic, is any combination of those grape varieties typically used to make the red wines of Bordeaux.


Grapes: 45% Cabernet Franc, 40% Malbec, and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon

Average price: $16.99 – $18.99

Food pairings: Fillet, Steak with red wine sauce and shallots, Lamb
