Amarone
Juicy plum, cherry and raspberry are married with vanilla, spice and heavy oak in this hearty Italian wine renowned for its big, velvety elegance and slightly sweet finish. Perfect for formal dinner parties and heartier meals. A dry and full-bodied Amarone is best when paired with bold flavors such as braised red meats, rich red wine sauces, wild game and ripe hard cheeses.
 
Cabarnet Sauvignon
A full-bodied, dry wine with very little oak. Flavors of cassis, dark red berries, cedar, oak, violets, vanilla and sometimes chocolate make Cabarnet Sauvignon the most popular red wine in the world. Ideal for formal sit-down dinners and cooler temperatures, Cabarnet Sauvignon pairs well with full-bodied flavours such as roast lamb and wild game, sauces such as mustard, pepper, or red wine, and firm, ripened cheeses such as Edam, Cheddar, and Gouda.

In any case, serving Malbec with a meal or appetizer is exceptionally easy. Its deep fruit character and mild acidity provide a perfect complement to a range of foods, including roasted red meats, tomato based dishes, mushrooms, and duck. Mild cheese, peppers, and mustard can also accent Malbec’s unique profile.
