Middle Sister Wild One Malbec
Malbec from Argentina, South America
Every family has one. The wild one. The girl who zigs when everybody else zags…who likes skydiving better than square dancing…who has horse-trekked across Mongolia and played polo with the Prince…the sister who posts photos of herself on the yacht…the crazy, beautiful one who always keeps you on your toes. For those of you who know and love a wild one, this spicy and delicious red wine may just inspire you to break some rules. Maybe even pair red wine with fish!
Also yummy with barbecued beef ribs, spicy chili, grilled lamb kabobs.
Middle Sister Winery
The Wine Sisterhood believes wine should taste good, be a fair value, and make life more enjoyable for anybody who chooses to partake. Before we launched Sweet and Sassy Moscato, we brought her picture across the country and asked women of all backgrounds and ethnicities what they thought of her. Our wine sisters unanimously agreed that is was important to recognize the diversity of women who love wine. That’s why we have made a sister of color the face of our new wine.

It's not rare to see a wine's country of origin listed as "California." A country into itself in the wine world, California makes enough varieties and styles to match many European wine countries. It produces a diverse range of wines that span the quality spectrum.

Good quality elastomer stopper. Saturated garnet-ruby color, jewel-like clarity, medium body, leggy. Medium sized nose, has some of the vinous traits of Italian Valpolicella and the berry aromas of California Zinfandel with faint grace note of wood and roses. Very fruity with enough acid to carry it (provided you're a fruit fiend), a nice bit of tannin, a bit too much alcohol on the palate. It could hold a few years - or not as it is very drinkable now. Very pleasant and friendly though there are many such wines available at lower prices. I can't say it exemplifies Malbec as a variety.Sunil - Deland, FL56/18/2014Redwinequeen - Humble, TX410/21/2013

saralynn - Pickerington, OH57/6/2013Had a wine tasting with friends last night, and this was hands down the favorite. Even for our friends who like white, and who have never had malbec. Very smooth, full-bodied and not too sweet or spicy. I'm back to order more.58/10/201257/2/2012Related Products

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
Wine Style Guide

- Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Big & Bold
