Winemaker Notes

Rich with luscious raspberry and macerated currant, Mendoza Malbec has a dark, juicy finish. This wine is vivid and racy in character.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
The Wine Advocate

The 2012 Malbec (first vintage was 2003) is a blend of three vineyards from Medrano, one from Lujan, one from Gualtallary (the highest altitude) and one from La Consulta in the Uco Valley. There is a short fermentation (7 days) but it resulted in a very dark-colored, ripe wine with aromas of blackberries, a touch of red fruit, and hints of smoke and spices. It is quite intense. The old vines are always different in the nose and the palate and this feels like an old-vine Malbec, medium-bodied palate, supple, mineral, rounder, velvety, grapy and silkier. Tannin and alcohol are well-integrated and in the background. Drink now-2018.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Fresh and floral, featuring crushed raspberry and racy cherry notes on a minerally frame, with silky tannins marking the lengthy finish.

James Suckling

A cool, fresh red with dried berries and delicate tannins. Lots of violets. Minerals, too. Full body with delicate tannins and a clean finish. Pretty.
