Wine find: 2008 Layer Cake Malbec


November 11, 2009|By Michael Dresser

From: Mendoza, Argentina

Price: $15

Serve with: Beef stew, lasagna

The full-bodied, smooth wine from Argentina is simply packed with robust flavors of blackberry, cassis, chocolate and coffee. It's much like a fine vintage port without the sweetness. The fruit is so intense and rounded, the 14.9 percent alcohol is barely perceptible. A screw cap ensures no cork problems.
