Our Restaurant Manager and resident wine connoisseur, Roberto Tavoloni, is raising a toast to a wonderful wine this month… The Lagarde Guarda DOC Malbec 2012.


Originating from Mayor Drummond, Lujan de Cuyo in Mendoza, Roberto describes this Malbec as particularly elegant, but with character. It has typical notes of ripened red plums, vanilla, and mocha, making it a traditional Malbec with good fruit concentration, a silky texture, and some spice.

ZOILO’s ASADO with braised ox cheeks, oyster mayo, & hispi cabbage pairs perfectly with this classy Malbec.
