Isn't everybody drinking Malbec these days? Everyone likes a nice Malbec, it seems. But, isn't it getting just a shade repetitive? So, what do you do? You want all the deep, dark fruit of the Malbec, all the instant appeal of the Malbec, all the oomph of the Malbec, all the...well...Malbec-iness of the Malbec, what happens if you want all that without it actually being a Malbec? Help is at hand, folks, tuck into this case of not-Malbecs and get all Malbecky without getting all Malbecky. If you see what I mean.
