John Wine snob says.J’accuse!!! This bottle of Argentinean Zola Malbec 2010 was the topper to a wonderful paella prepared in San Francisco by the lovely Agnes and her fiancé’ Tobias who ventured to our little Bay city tryst from Sweden. Well done, Agnes and Tobias! This was a pretty good wine made even better by their sumptuous Spanish mélange. My first instinct is to have a Pinot Grigio or a Sauvignon Blanc with paella, but this Malbec was just what the doctor ordered. It was not too heavy and did not have any of the often found vanilla flavors. This wine, the paella, and a few umlauts made for a memorable evening.
I will give this wine three stars.
