I always love seeing the malbec results come in from the judges. It is such a popular variety with many wine drinkers, but also very price sensitive with a tremendous amount of brand loyalty. When the dust settled, we saw a number of well-loved brands earning awards at this year’s competition, but surprisingly, we saw a malbec from the United States taking the top spot. Not to worry, Argentina still rules the roost with a sweep of all the Judges Selections. No matter how you like your malbec, perhaps with some meaty dishes or barbecued cuts, I highly recommend all of these. Tom Firth
