Masi Tupungato Passo Doble, this week’s TGIF wine

Finally it’s Friday and we’re feeling adventurous to try a new wine. We select a Masi Tupungato Passo Doble 2011 that is sale priced at $12. The wine is a blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Corvina from Mendoza, Argentina. As the wine is aerating in the glass I catch an aromatic whiff from across the room. On the palate there are hints of bing cherry and blackberry. The finish is moderately long with a peppery encore. Our rainy Friday dinner is Chinese take-out which may not be the best pairing, but the wine stands up well to the fried appetizers. The bottle is empty by the time we start the entrée.
