Everybody is always asking how do malbecs compare in taste to cabernets. Well let’s take a look at that. Come see for yourselves. This week we taste three cabernets against three malbecs. Both are great to drink alone or with food, BBQ, both can be fruity or tanic, both are delicious and both are enjoyed by many. Attend this tasting and go away with a greater understanding of why you do or do not prefer one varietal over the other. Who knows maybe you won’t be able to choose between them and will figure out when you want to drink one over the other. That’s what wine aficionados do.
