2012 Zontes Footstep Violet Beauregard Malbec

"Malbec from Australia may not be on anyone's radar, but if this beauty from Zonte's Footstep is an indicator of potential, then Argentina could be challenged in its dominance of this growing red-wine category. The Zonte's Footstep is ultra-suave, showing ripe red-fruit aromas on the nose and supple smoothness on the palate. This wine took platinum at the recent Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition." 1/28/14 [+]
