Tasting Notes
“This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible deep purple red color. Loads of spice and black and red cherry aromas with notes of chocolate. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both a full mid palate and lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouth watering too. “
Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.”
94 Points Wine Enthusiast – “Pure berry and cassis aromas are concentrated and show no holes. This Uco Valley Malbec feels pure, direct and linear, albeit with slightly scratchy tannins that should dissipate in due time. Blackberry and dry spice flavors finish full and grabby, with muscularity. Drink through 2028.”
93 Points Wine Spectator – “Concentrated boysenberry and Asian spice flavors are strapped together by fresh tannins and zesty acidity in this ripe, juicy style. Offers creamy hints, with dark chocolate and mocha notes on the well-structured finish. Drink now through 2025. 7,000 cases made.”
93 Points James Suckling – “Oyster shell, iodine, forest floor, citrus and Chinese spices. So mineral yet spicy on the palate with driven acidity, tight tannins and a fresh yet layered finish. This is so mineral and savory as it closes out.”
