Event #3 -- Malbec
WINNER: Vaglio Malbec
Earthy and fresh, this bottle of wine has a plump dark fruit flavor with a smidge of green herbs. The often underrated Malbec offers more than just value when it comes to higher priced reds such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. The main fruit flavors in Argentine Malbec are blackberry, plum and black cherry with hints of milk chocolate, leather, and depending on the amount of oak aging, a sweet tobacco flavor. Bold, but smooth without much of a lingering finish, Malbec pairs nicely with rustic flavors like cumin and lean meats such as pork.
You just read that Malbec is typically the "underdog" when it comes to the red wine family; so it is only fitting to introduce Argentina's Paula Pareto, the first Argentine judoka to win an Olympics Games gold medal! Leading up to the games, Brazil's Sarah Menezes was the hometown hopeful to win the gold in Judo. Unfortunately, Menezes not only lost her repechage match, but she went out with a dislocated elbow; opening the door for underdog Paula Pareto to rise in the ranks and take home the country's first gold medal in Judo! Congratulations, Paula! You are in inspiration to many!
