Great Wine, Great Art.

This is the review the Columbus Dispatch did of the wine about a month or so ago.  As some of you may already know, I was asked to have one of my pieces used as the wine label a few years ago--everyone asked me what the wine was like (I'm a whiskey girl)! So here is lingo that all of my wine loving friends can understand! It makes a great gift (I don't make any money from it, so you'll also need a Kate Morgan piece of art to go with it when you gift it) :)

Wine Review: 2013 La Rousse Languedoc Malbec

Availability: the Andersons near Sawmill Road; Giant Eagle (Sawmill Road, Lewis Center, New Albany, Powell and Westerville); Giant Eagle Market District (Grandview Yard and Kingsdale Shopping Center); Growl!; the Hills Market; House Wine; Pace-High Carryout; Terroir; the Twisted Vine; Weiland’s Market; the Wine Bistro (Columbus, Upper Arlington and Worthington); and Wine on High — and by the glass at Harvest Pizzeria and Zoe Cafe 

Aroma: a mix of fresh and dried fruits (plums, cherries) plus cane fruit 

Flavor: complex fruits with a grapy foundation and no mawkish aspects; long aftertaste 

Notes: Amid the flood of undistinguished malbec-based wines (mostly from South America), here is a standout — produced in southwestern France, where the grape originated. (Columbus artist Kate Morgan designed the label.)
