Colonia Las Liebres Mendoza Classic Bonarda

Anyone who has been a malbec fan for a while and hasn't tried Argentina's other swell red grape, bonarda, is seriously missing out. Especially when a gem such as the Colonia Las Liebres Mendoza Classic Bonarda 2015 costs a mere $11. This spicy delight really brings the plum on the nose and palate, along with a dandy combination of richness and acidity, smoothness and oomph. The robustness reigns from start to finish, making it a splendidly timely option for our unrelenting winter. That provides a fine match for roasted or braised meats and veggies, but keep some around for grilled burgers and brats or even takeout pizza.

Available at 1st Grand Avenue, Cork Dork, Kowalski's, Wine Thief, Thomas, South Lyndale and others.
