91 points James Suckling: "This has a brambly array of ripe red berries and blackcurrants, leading to a palate with very smooth, supple tannins holding blueberry flavors long and fresh. Drink or hold." (03/2019) Wine Enthusiast: "Black-fruit aromas are grapy and saucy, with a touch of animal hide. On the palate, this organic-grape Malbec feels full, round and pulpy. Healthy berry and cassis flavors are chocolaty on the back end, while a touch of heat rises up on the finish. (MS)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: The Inkarri is a fresh & elegantly styled wine tha...

93 points James Suckling: "This is a fantastic wine for the vintage with a clarity and brightness on the nose and palate. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. 2015 was a tough year for Argentina but this is a beautiful wine. " (04/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classical 2015 Alta Collection Cabernet Sauvignon was produced with grapes from their estate vineyards in San Pablo. The grapes fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts after a cold soak. The wine matured in new and second use French o...

93 points James Suckling: "Aromas of dark fruit with fresh herbs and tile. Perfumed. Medium-to-full body, juicy fruit and a flavorful finish." (04/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc was produced with fruit from Gualtallary, from a specific 8.8-hectare plot of the Adrianna Vineyard. It fermented in two tries with a portion of full clusters. It has a beautiful nose with plenty of spices and herbs and some Pinot-like red fruit. The palate is harmonious and balanced, with very fine tannins and a velvety textu...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 La Tremenda is sourced from the vineyard that names the wine, from the estate El Chaconero in the village of Villena, a plot at 600 meters altitude planted some 25 years ago. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French barriques for six months. 2016 is a cooler year than 2014 or 2015, and the wines reflect it. It was not an easy year; they had to do a strict selection of grapes, and it paid off. It has the character of the variety, with its elegant rusticity with a fresh, herbal twist and a pal...

91 points Decanter: "With input from an Italian consultant winemaker, Bodega Renacer has produced a beautiful Malbec here. Succulent, ripe dark fruit comes to the fore, with fresh tobacco notes behind the plum, damson and blackcurrant flavours. Spicy on the long finish. (JB)" 90 points James Suckling: "Aromas of fresh sliced strawberries, blueberries and watermelon. Medium to full body, round and velvety tannins and a fresh and drinkable finish. Drink now." (04/2018) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "A refreshing Malbec from the heights of the Andes in the U...

2017 Susana Balbo "Signature" Malbec Mendoza
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "The aromas of this wine are so wonderful with blue fruit, blackberries and black tea. Ample violet undertones. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish." (03/2019)

90 points Vinous: "Saturated bright ruby. A note of raisiny ripeness to the aromas of redcurrant, dark cherry, licorice, pepper and spices. Plush, slightly herbal, fine-grained wine with lovely sweetness and some torrefaction oak notes from the 100% new oak. Very Cabernet in its herbal/chocolatey character but doesn't convey quite the harmonious ripeness, fruit sweetness or class of the Malbec. Finishes savory, energetic and firmly tannic, with lingering chocolate and herb notes and sneaky rising persistence. This wine, too, should develop gracefully in ...

2018 Passionate Wines "Del Mono" Tinto Tupungato
Top Pick!
91 points Vinous: "Bright medium red-ruby. Brambly blackberry, dark raspberry, black pepper, mocha and minerals on the nose, plus a touch of reduction. Then rich, broad and almost chocolatey on the palate, offering a fine-grained texture and very good concentration to its sweet, juicy dark berry, pepper and spice flavors. This is a fairly substantial, chocolatey-ripe wine for a Michelini brother (In this case, Matías) but I'm not complaining. Harmonious acidity and salty minerality give this wine early deliciousness but there's no rush to drink it. Finis...

95 points James Suckling: "A very intense nose of blackberries, mulberries, violet extract, charcuterie, Indian spices and really flamboyant licorice. Full body, lots of juicy, grainy tannins, tangy acidity, tons of dark plum fruit and a long, chewy finish. With a little less wood and more polish, this would have scored even higher." (01/2019) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "A blend of 40 percent Malbec with equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, this comes primarily from the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo. It aged 18 months in barrels, mostly used, and ...

96 points James Suckling: "This has crushed red flowers, some deeper, darker, brambly fruit and a stony-graphite edge that delivers a core of red-cherry and berry aromas and flavors in a very unfettered, open-knit and complete mode. The texture is ethereal and plush, really fresh and concentrated. Needs some air and turns floral as it opens. No sulfur added. Drink now. (JS)" (03/2019) K&L Notes: Piero Incisa della Rocchetta, the grandson of Sassicaia founder Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, ended up in Patagonia after tasting a bottle of Pinot Noir he fel...

92 points James Suckling: "Brimming with blueberry, violet and bitter chocolate notes, this is an extravagant yet very fresh and well-structured expression of Salta Malbec. If you can give it until 2020, then the bold, dry tannins will soften and may make it more elegant." (04/2018) 90 points Vinous: "Bright full ruby. Aromas of black cherry, dark raspberry and licorice, plus oak notes of mocha, espresso and chocolate. Densely packed and chewy if bit less complex and deep than the 2016 Autentico, with black cherry and chocolate flavors dominating. Here...


99 points James Suckling: "Super refined and beautiful with flowers, spices, dried fruit and hints of stones. Medium to full body with very fine tannins and a gorgeous finish. Shows great finesse and depth. Savory character, as always, but in check." (07/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The new vintage to be released in September 2019 is the 2016 Cheval des Andes, which was cropped from a completely unusual year—cooler than the average and with an exceptional amount of rain (around 600 liters), yet the wine has achieved exceptional fresh...

98 points James Suckling: "A standout Pinot with such purity, complexity and fragrance on the nose. Beautifully ripe cherries and berries abound. Plenty of blue fruit. Very aromatic. The palate has a beautifully detailed thread of fine, gently assertive tannins. Great expression of Pinot Noir here. Long life ahead of it." (02/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top-of-the-range 2017 Treinta y Dos is always released later than the other reds, as the élevage here is longer. The year was extremely low yielding and with natural concentratio...

93 points Vinous: "Saturated dark ruby. Superripe, even slightly porty aromas of black cherry, beefsteak tomato, roasted plum and chocolate. Extremely dense and bulletproof, with a distinctly roasted quality to its fruit that's countered by surprising acidity. I suspect this wine will need another five years of bottle aging to harmonize. Finishes with exotic mocha and stewed tomato notes, a mounting medicinal quality and strong building tannins. Like a few past vintages of this one-off, reportedly from the highest vineyard in the world, this Malbec is ju...

48% Malbec, 45% Bonarda, 7% Semillon Grapes come mainly from vineyards in Luján de Cuyo and Medrano, Malbec and Semillon grapes are co-fermented, while Bonarda is vinified separately before the final blend. The wine is then aged for a minimum of 9 months in concrete vats. No oak aging. This is the best/most delicious history lesson to be had. Before Argentine Malbec conquered the world this is the type of red that you would find. It is juicy fresh and lively with easy tannins and charming red fruits. This wine was ment for drinking, not pondering. G...

James Suckling: "This is quite rich and has some positive tannins, but is already rather developed. The berry fruit character is on the muted side. Drink now." (04/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "Cherry and plum aromas are as they are, with only a touch of creamy oak influence. This Patagonian Malbec is linear and compact in feel, while flavors suggest jammy raspberry and plum. Red fruit notes linger on a finish with mild tannins. (MS)" (08/2019) Wine Spectator: "Lithe, with a deep current of red plum, mineral and green herbal flavors that are matched to fre...

Eduardo Soler and two friends started Ver Sacrum in 2012 with the concept of growing and vinifying Rhône varietals. Their winemaking ethos focuses on fresh, low alcohol, lighter skin contact, native yeast, honest, and easy drinking wines. All grapes are hand harvested and most are foot crushed as they believe in minimum intervention in the vineyards and winery with no corrections, filtration, or pump overs.

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The other appellation blend is the 2016 Malbec Appellation La Consulta, which comes all from the La Consulta district in San Carlos, composed primarily of sandy soils, with some rounded pebbles thrown in for good measure. Coming from 35-year-old vines and brought up in 35% new French oak, it has considerable elegance as well as a seamless texture. Lovely notes of more red fruits, rose petals, violets, and leafy herbs all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, silky Malbec that has loads of upfront charm and appeal....

93 points James Suckling: "Tight and focused with chewy yet polished tannins and a lovely texture. Shows tension and intensity. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Drink now or hold." (06/2017) 91 points Vinous: "Good dark ruby-red. Blackcurrant, high-toned spices, licorice and mint on the nose, plus a floral note that reminded me of Cabernet Franc. A supple, concentrated, wonderfully pliant blend with a spicy personality to its blackberry, licorice and menthol flavors. Finishes chewy, savory and very long, with sweet tannins. This wine boasts excel...

Vinous: "Full ruby-red. Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, menthol, chocolate and herbs. Round and spicy, showing more sweetness and depth than the Terroir Unico Pinot Noir. The wine's blackberry fruit is framed by integrated acidity and complicated by a suggestion of saline minerality. Finishes with gentle tannins and lovely length. Good sneaky flavor intensity here. (includes fruit from four growers, but 50% of this wine comes from Tupungato Winelands in Gualtallary, which the Michelini brothers rent and control; made mostly with destemmed grapes, and wi...

97 points James Suckling: "Very deep and dark with enormous concentration but also a lot of finesse. There’s some toast and chocolate from oak, as well as great freshness. Stunning harmony and a very long finish that tells a totally fascinating story. A blend of 73% cabernet sauvignon and 27% malbec. Drink in 2020." (04/2018) 96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the standouts in this stacked lineup is the 2014 Nicolas Catena Zapata, 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Malbec sourced from a multitude of vineyards (La Pirámide, Domingo, Adrianna and Nicasia Vineyar...




93 points James Suckling: "A red with sweet tobacco, plum and chocolate character. Medium to full body, savory finish. Delicious at the end. Drink now." (03/2019)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The captivating 2017 Malbec Appellation Altamira has been produced with grapes from the same vineyard since 2015, next to the neighboring vineyard where they have now planted their own grapes. It's tremendously expressive and aromatic, and it seems to transcend the vintage. They couldn’t make the wine in 2016 because of the adverse conditions, but they came back really strong with this 2017, which has a chalky texture and a dry, austere and long finish. Really very good. (LG)" (10/2019) 92 points Vinous: "Dark ...

2006 Catena Zapata "Nicolas Catena Zapata" Bordeaux Blend
Back In Stock!
97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2006 Nicolas Catena Zapata is composed of 70% Cabernet Sauvignon and 30% Malbec and spent 26 months in new French oak. It displays a superb perfume of pain grille, spice box, truffle, wild flowers, black cherry, and black currant. Rich, layered, dense, and complex, it, too, combines elegance and power. The wine is structured for the long haul and should easily see its 25th birthday, with 50 not out of the question. There is no track record, and I won’t be around to find out.

2006 Catena Zapata "Argentino" Malbec Mendoza
New!
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Stately, stunning Malbec with alluring aromas of balsam wood, flower petals, cocoa and cola along with major league berry action. The palate is saturated, pure, tannic and loaded with blasting berry fruit, licorice and more. Let it age … Then let it rip with a porterhouse steak. (MS)" (07/2010) 94 points Vinous: "Good full medium ruby. Wonderfully expressive aromas of black raspberry, mocha and sexy nutty oak. Sweet, lush and full; more approachable than the vineyard-designated Catena Zapata malbecs but with no shortage of f...

92 points James Suckling: "A juicy and savory red with dried berry and iron. Some rust. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Has some backbone and structure. Drink or hold." (03/2019) K&L Notes: This Malbec is always a terrific value, showcasing Mendoza fruit with a California style, and at a great price. No wonder, since Viña Cobos founder Paul Hobbs is a renowned maker of "cult" Cabernet and Pinot Noir in California. He got his start in Argentina back in the 1990s, consulting for Nicolas Catena.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A step up in complexity and intensity, the 2015 Malbec Limestone Block is sourced from a single vineyard in the Chacayes zone where the soils are rich in limestone, hence the name. There is a little bit of Cabernet Franc here, and it's all fermented in concrete vats and matured in neutral, well-seasoned oak barrels. The palate is quite soft, with round tannins and moderate acidity. 24,000 bottles produced. (LG)" (12/2016)



Winemaker Notes: This Malbec shows notes of blackberries, warm blueberry pancakes, and maraschino cherries while being intensely layered with baking spices of clove, cinnamon, sage, licorice, and cedar. Light hints of orange peel, eucalyptus, white powdered sugar and red velvet cake dance around the core. The wine finishes with integrated earth components of soil, dry crushed leaves, and an animal quality that screams being alive. Finca Adalgisa is located in the Chacras de Coria sub region of Lujan de Cuyo of Mendoza,Argentina. The estate goes back thr...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I also tasted the 2014 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard, which might take some months to come into the market. It has some balsamic aromas, medicinal hints, traces of orange peel, saffron and a touch of sweet spices. It's built around very fine tannins and a notable core of acidity that acts as backbone, giving it length and lifting up the finish. This is quite in line with the 2010 vintage, with power and freshness in a rare combination of clout and elegance only the very best wines manage to show. There...

99 points James Suckling: "The intense but more importantly, ethereally-fresh fruit takes your breath away. A kaleidoscope of freshly-picked blackcurrants, brambleberries, boysenberries and mulberries. Though this a late release, it tastes like they were picked yesterday. Then there's pure ink, iodine, licorice and dark plums. Full body, seamless tannins, unmitigated fruit and an incredibly long finish. So delicious now, but better in 2022 and way after that, too." (07/2019) K&L Notes: Nosotros celebrates the efforts of all the people who work day by d...

98 points James Suckling: "This is a phenomenal malbec with intense blue fruits such as blueberries and blackberries. Black truffle, too. Full-bodied, bright and juicy with fantastic power and richness. Yet the acidity just keeps going. Volcanic salt and white peppers. A thoroughly breathtaking wine. Try after 2020." (04/2018) 97 points Decanter: "Of the three single-parcel Malbecs from Catena in the Adrianna Vineyard, this is by far the most radical. From heavy calcareous soils, this is more than fruit – it smells of stones and chalk, has a tense, sha...

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino blends grapes from Angélica Vineyard in Lunlunta and Nicasia Vineyard in Altamira. It's a classical Malbec that fermented in 225- and 500-liter rolling oak fermentors and matured in French barrique for 18 months. They have changed the image and also the blend for this wine, which is now all from old vines. The label shows the history of Malbec with four relevant women (including Madam Phylloxera!) from the 12th century to the rebirth in the 20th century. This is ripe and he...

Bid on this 3-bottle lot of 2012 Bodegas Aleanna Cabernet Franc "El Enemigo" Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Argentina (98RP, 98JS, 94VN, 94W&S). Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2012 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard almost made me fall from my chair. It is the expression of elegance and austerity coupled with strong minerality. It is mostly Cabernet Franc from a very chalky vineyard in Gualtallary at 1,430 meters altitude that fermented together with a small percentage of Malbec. In 2012 they fine tuned the élevage and fermentation, which was in rolling 500-liter barrels that were new in 2006 (so by then quite neutral), where the wine was kept for one more year and then transferred to 1,000-liter egg-shaped cement vats for one further year.
