“This bright and light-bodied red wine was made from 100% Malbec grapes. It is reminiscent of some of the Malbec-based wines I’ve tasted from the cool-climate Loire Valley, where the grape is called Côt (pronounced ‘Coh’). Food-friendly and almost Pinot Noir-like. It shows aromas of red berries and spice. A truly unique spin on Malbec.”
