Doña Paula’s 2008 Malbec hails from the Mendoza region of Argentina. Jammy, with a light herbal finish, it’s easy to see why this wine has won so many accolades of late: It’s great with food or by itself, and it lightens up to reveal more red fruit as it aerates. It’s hard to love many malbecs, but it’s easy to really like this wine. The price, however, it’s what’s really shocking.
