International Malbec Day. I’m Anthony Dias Blue with the Blue Lifestyle Minute sponsored by the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. Flagship of Argentine viticulture, Argentine Malbec has grown in popularity ever since President of Argentina Domingo Faustino Sarmiento decided to spur the Argentine wine industry way back in 1852. A couple of bad years for the French Malbecs later, and Argentina has become the world’s leading producer of Malbec in number, quality, and culture. Try a bottle, such as the MAAL Bestial Malbec{sixty dollars and ninety­ two points) this Saturday April 17th, International Malbec day, in honor of President Sarmiento. The bold, full-bodied wines pair well with umami laden foods, and especially with steak.
