Bonarda is a grape unfamiliar to most, but if you’re a fan of Malbec, Bonarda should be on your radar and this bottle of Colonia Las Liebres Bonarda 2013 is one of the best values that you will find for a wine priced right at ten dollars. The price is so good for the quality that we recommend grabbing a case.
From the famous region of Mendoza, this wine is all dark fruit and spice on the nose. When consumed the wine is rich and dark, but it also has a nice amount of acidity, much more than you might expect for a wine of its dark intensity. This acidity combined with the wine’s rich and full berry flavors create a balanced wine that makes for smooth and easy drinking.
This wine is a classic Pop and Pour, no decanting necessary. While it’s smooth enough to drink on its own, it’s also fantastic with a wide variety of meat dishes.
