Twitter trends on July 31 included #winechat as there were 42 active participants in an hour conversation and tasting of wines from Argentina. As a small wine import company, we are thrilled to have such positive responses.
I've tried to capture some of my favorite quotes during the #winechat though quite frankly with 480 tweets in the hour, it's possible I missed something. If I missed your tweet or you want more information on Argentina, please contact me.
Comments on the 2008 Malbec de Angeles:
@1educatedpalate One of the best Malbec's I've had... I normally avoid-this has changed my perspective
@alawine Malbec de Angeles: Full-bodied, whole plum, earthy, spicy, long finish #7wordwinereview
@FabOCGirl Lots of lush black fruits, plum, dark cherry, clove, pepper, earth, and incense on the nose of the '08 Malbec de Angeles.
@GuilleBarbier Malbec De Angeles2008 aging potential might be 10 years
@NNKWineDiva Love a wine with layers of character, and this is full of them for all of the senses!
@noblewines Some really excellent Malbec coming from Lujan de Cuyo in southren Mendoza 1924 seems to be from there.
@RVimmerstedt I am so digging this #Malbec ! I love the layers, love how it is evolving as it opens.
@SneepearsYes, please! My favorite...the Malbec of Angels!
@WineJulia Vina 1924 De Angeles #Malbec - aromas of plums, dried fruit, ripe strawberries & hints of violet. #yum
@WineJulia the #Malbec is opening up beautifully with palate pleasing textures through & through.
Food Ideas for Malbec:
@CuevaBar A medium cooked steak will bring up a combination of aromas and flavors of dark leather #Malbec De Angeles
@OWOCWines Agree with Malbec & beef. If you don't eat beef, try it with grilled eggplant.
@pullthatcork What is a really interesting not thought of pairing? Lamb burgers I had for dinner tonight.
@vinogger Nothing beats a great Argentinian Mendoza Malbec with steak!
@Virginia_Made Malbec and grilled portobello ... Mmmm.
@WineJulia Wishing it was Fall with this #Malbec...would love some mushroomy beef strogano. One of my warm-u-up dishes. Mmmmm
