    Winemaker Notes

    Round and delicate, a harmonious balance of crisp freshness and a rounded depth, this is a good average benchmark for Alsatian wines.

    Edmond Rentz
    It was in 1785 when Thomas Rentz started his career in the wine industry. He farmed an assortment of vineyards and made his own wine which was destined for family and local consumption and a few local bars. Through the 19th and 20th century his son Jean-Thomas and his successors, Jean-Ignace and Michel Xavier Rentz managed to expand this viticultural business despite the ravages caused by wars and Phylloxera.

    It was in 1920 that Edmond Rentz developed and expanded the size of the vineyards and dedicated his career to promoting Alsatian wines. In 1936, he became a pioneer of bottling wine in the area and started to sell his wines commercially. He decided to add a personal touch to his wines by signing each bottle with his name, and in so doing created the brand ‘Edmond Rentz.'

    A rugged, sunbaked plain that has long served as a haven for outlaws and rogues, Paso Robles has made a name for itself as a source of rebelliously powerful wines. With 11 smaller sub-AVAs, there is quite a bit of diversity to be found in this inland portion of California’s Central Coast.

    This is mostly red wine country, with Cabernet Sauvignon and Zinfandel standing out as the star performers. Other popular varieties include Merlot, Petite Sirah, Petit Verdot, and Rhône varieties both red and white. There is a fairly uniform tendency here towards wines that are unapologetically bold and opulently fruity, albeit with a surprising amount of acidity thanks to the region’s chilly nighttime temperatures.

    Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originates in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends but was susceptible to viticultural problems. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it did flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. Malbec was brought to Argentina in 1868 by a French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, but did not gain its current reputation as the national grape of Argentina until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century thanks to its easy-going drinkability.

    In the Glass

    Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of freshly turned earth, black fruits from berries to plums, and licorice, appropriately backed by dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, it can be quite intense and often needs time to mellow before becoming drinkable. In the Old World, its rusticity shines, with aged examples showing dusty notes of leather and tobacco. The best examples in all regions often possess a beguiling bouquet of violets.

    Perfect Parings

    Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

    Sommelier Secret

    If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
