Wineglass In One Hand, Armadillo In The Other

A wine almost as amazing as the pink fairy armadillo.

Mendoza province, Argentina is home to at least two wonders. One is the pichiceigo or pink fairy armadillo. Four inches long and, yes, pink, this tiniest member of the armadillo family looks like a millipede combined with a My Little Pony. And you can only find it in central Argentina.

The 2011 Proemio Malbec isn't nearly as cute. But this Argentine beauty tastes a lot better. With its tobacco, leather, black cherry, and peat moss notes, it goes down easy and takes its time finishing. Nobody will ever make a hit YouTube video about it - but you can't drink viral videos, can you?
