This bottle of Rancourt Winery 2012 Malbec is an amazing, exciting wine.
Malbec is similar to a beaujolais or pinot noir, except it is lighter in color and fruitier. A beautiful aroma of watermelon Jolly Ranchers (its’ nickname), with a deep ruby color, this 2012 Malbec is bursting with flavor and mild residual tannins, but not overly dry. I find it to be soft and velvety on the tongue with a hint of pepper. My nose senses berries and currants when I’m drinking the Malbec.

To my knowledge, Rancourt Winery‘s 2012 Malbec is the only unoaked Malbec in this area, let alone in Canada or, perhaps, even beyond our borders.
This is one wine you really want to add to your collection, while it is still available, as it is a limited vintage and seems to be in high demand at this time. With an affordable price point, I would even recommend that you stock several bottles.
