Wine Wednesday: Manos Negras Malbec Stone Soil Select

A Malbec isn't normally something that I buy, but this is another one that K and I picked up at the BevMo! 5 cent wine sale.  We were saving it for a nice steak, since pretty much the only time I want a red wine is when I am eating steak.  Well, the time finally came, and we were grilling some beautiful New York Steaks, so I pulled out this bottle.

It turns out that this is a really interesting Argentinian wine.  It is made from 100% sustainably farmed Malbec grapes and grown in a very stony soil with a high mineral content.  This imparts a strong mineral flavor to the wine.  It is a dark red wine, but not heavy.  Dry and not very fruity.  This was a great wine, and I think even people who are not big fans of red wine would like it.
