Wine of the week: 2012 Dona Paula Estate Malbec

Make dad's day terrific with a bottle of 2012 Dona Paula Estate Malbec. For one, it's delicious. Two, it doesn't cost much, and three, it's a great steak, burger or chop wine! This is all estate fruit grown in the Uco Valley of Mendoza, Argentina. Elevations range between 3,773 and 4,430 feet. That's like trying to grow grapes on Flattop! The cool climate produces low yields, soft tannins and rich, complex black fruits. A tremendous value! Costs about $15.
