Winemaker Notes

Cruz Andina is a Malbec based blend that represents the unique character of high altitude and old vines from Mendoza. The wine expresses Malbec's exceptional concentration with a soft, supple texture. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bonarda are blended for complexity, structure and delicate mouthfeel. The old-vine fruit, Alvaro Espinoza's minimalist approach to winemaking and sensibility for elegant wines were the perfect fit for the style of Malbec we desired to produce.

Critical Acclaim

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast

A big, ripe and pure Malbec with gorgeous berry aromas setting up a lush, yummy palate that pumps forth chewy, delicious blackberry, vanilla and chocolate flavors. Finishes warm and oaky: from a mediocre vintage, it's impressive. From the chilean Huneeus family and top-flight winemaker/consultant Alvaro Espinoza.

WS 91
Wine Spectator

Rich, with lots of ripe, spicy blackberry, currant and boysenberry fruit layered with enticing black licorice and vibrant spice notes, followed by a winey finish.
