What would pair well with a grilled steak? In my wine storage was an Unanime 2013 from Medoza, Argentina, Mascota Vineyards. I felt this Bordeaux style blend would work nicely. The blend consisted of 60% cabernet, 25% Malbec and 15% Cab Franc with 14.5% alcohol. It was aged in French oak for 20 months. The color was an inky purple and the nose had hints of black current. Flavors of Chocolate, Coffee, Spice, Tobacco and dark fruit appeared as it opened up. It was nice and dry had a full body and was complex. The finish was around 35 seconds. Though this was smooth drinking, it didn’t wow me. At around $23 I feel better blends available for the money.
