I’m all about women supporting women, so I was happy to find out that the bottle of 2016 @lagardewine Malbec I recently grabbed was made by a female-driven, family-owned winery.
With the first vine planted in 1897, Lagarde is one of the oldest wineries in Argentina’s Mendoza region with Malbec vines over 100 years old. Lagarde was the first Latin American producer to plant non-traditional varieties such as Viognier and Moscato Bianco. With only two families in its history, Lagarde was acquired by the Pescarmona family in 1969. Today, sisters Sofia and Lucila Pescarmona run the operation as third generation winemakers. 🍷
The wine is ruby red in color and has an earthy nose with hints of florals and cherry. Texture wise, it’s very light on the palate, with fruit forward, jammy, and vanilla notes. Nice tannins in there too. Believe it or not, I’m pretty sure I got it at @costco from the recommendation of one of their employees. I saw it online for $16.99. I paired it with steak, mashed potatoes, and crispy roasted kale. Looking back, I forgot to score it, but I certainly enjoyed it. Cheers!
