Isabela Malbec

Isabela Malbec

What Possessed Us To Open Wine?
Friends had been to Panama. Not Panama City, FL. The real Panama. They went there to do research on possibly retiring there in the future. We had one million questions.

What Did The Label Want Us To Know?
It’s from Patagonia Argentina. I’m used to Mendoza, but okay. It was picked in April 2012. This is a very young wine. I wonder what it might taste like in a year? They use the words: blackberry, plum, violet, vanilla and cream. They recommend steak and lamb.

What’s So Great About It?
It was a little lighter than we were used to in a Malbec, but we all liked it a lot and thought it went well with food. It had a quick tart finish.

What it’s like to see the sun come up and go down over the Pacific Ocean on the same day.
Grocery stores in foreign countries are so interesting.
