I assume you're referring to malbec. Not sure why things are different in Louisiana, but malbec is not that hard to come by at a decent wine store. Granted, they won't have it at Walmart, but then again Walmart should be the last place you go to buy wine...

 

Malbec is a great wine for those who are just getting into red wine. Generally speaking, it's a bit sweeter than merlot, not as stout and tannic as cab, and a bit more robust than pinot. Even after tasting practically every varietal and most blends out there, malbec is still one of my favorites. The great thing about it is the consistency. 99% of malbec now will be from South America, which is much more predictable and stable from year to year than say France. 2005-2007 were all great years.

 

A good malbec that's fairly easy to find is Bodega Norton Reserva. Try it from the 2006 vintage. Shouldn't cost much more than about $13 or so.
