Charles Barkley

We paired Charles Barkley with a Malbec

Rationale

So obviously Charles Barkley is legendary player who is respected worldwide, especially as defender. However, as player who has never won a championship, he is more appreciated for his TV commentary than for what he does on the court. Also, Charles was known to exude a lot of confidence and had a real bravado about his character, yet lacked the necessary dedication that is required to win a title. This is why we paired him with a Malbec.

Malbec is one of the most popular red wines and known to be fuller in body with higher alcohol content, which is attributed to Barkley’s confidence and bravado. Yet, these wines have a tendency to lack in the other categories used to describe wines, which prevents Malbecs from being the really balanced wine that they have the potential to be.
