Wine Find: 2010 Bodega Elena de Mendoza Red Blend

October 09, 2011|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

This blend of malbec, syrah and the little-known red wine grape bonarda has yielded a smooth, ready-to-drink but complex and full-bodied wine with a lot of character. It offers rich blackberry fruit with notes of herbs, Asian spices, vanilla and a touch of pine. It's a great value in this price range.

From: Mendoza, Argentina

Price: $11

Serve with: Grilled meat, pasta in red sauce
