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) K&L Notes: The Inkarri is a fresh & elegantly styled wine that delivers layers of crushed plum, macerated raspberry, is framed by anise and fruitcake, and has a lingering espresso note. This wine is made with certified organic grapes, is Certified Biodynamic by Demeter, and is Vegan.

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...

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another beautiful wine is the 2016 Malbec Appellation Lunlunta, an appellation blend from older vines and the sandy, loamy soils of Lunlunta appellation, a sub-appellation of the Maipu IG. It offers more kirsch, blackberries, toasted spice, and dried herb aromas and flavors and is ripe, supple, and sexy on the palate. Beautifully balanced and medium to full-bodied, it has loads of upfront charm and appeal and is perfect for drinking over the coming 5-6 years." (02/2019) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Appellat...

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. Drink or hold. (JS)" (03/2019) K&L Notes: Beautiful deep violet color with exploding aromas of blackberries, blueberries and black cherries. It is a wonderfully floral, pure expression of Uco Valley. On the palate it has enticing flavors of plum, berries, with a bright acidity and a lick of chalk. Well-integrated oak and filigree tannins. Its finish...

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...

Eighty Four wines is a collaborative project between Doug Shafer of Shafer winery and his long time winemaker Elias Fernandez. The name comes from 1984, which was the inaugural vintage the two men worked on at Shafer winery together. This is an extremely small project with just 300 cases of Petite Sirah produced and 600 cases of Malbec. A very exciting project; if you're a fan of Shafer Relentless or other Shafer wines you owe it to yourself to check out these limited release offerings.

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....

Two winemakers who were already producing some serious Central Coast wines, Curt Schalchlin founder of Sans Liege and Andrew Jones who started Field Recordings, teamed up to launch The Fabelist Wine Co.

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...


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...



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...

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.

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...

Côt is the local name for Malbec in Touraine and Jean-Francois makes one of the most sought after versions. A delightful and more elegant version from the ones you might know from Cahors or Mendoza.
Price: $16.99



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...

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 ...

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)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Inky purple-black colored, the 2015 Malbec Mt. Veeder gives up a very unusual (in a good way!) savory/meaty nose over a core of black currants and blackberries with touches of Indian spices, chargrill and sautéed herbs. Full-bodied, very firm and very fresh in the mouth, the rock solid, muscular black fruit is tautly framed, finishing long and savory. Give it another 2-3 years in bottle and drink it over the next 25+. (LPB)" (12/2017) 93 points Vinous: "The 2015 Malbec is fabulous. Super-ripe red cherry and plu...




Winery Notes: "Ladera Malbec fruit is sourced exclusively from our Howell Mountain vineyard. Rooted in decomposed volcanic ash and red clay soils, the vines produce intensely flavored berries with great balance and inherit structure. Carefully selected barrels make up this 100% Malbec comprised from the most promising lots of the vintage. The grapes were harvested at night to preserve the fresh fruit characters, then hand sorted and gently de-stemmed to small open-top fermenters. After a five day cold-soak, gentle maceration techniques were employed thro...

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...

2013 Susana Balbo "Nosotros" Mendoza
New!
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...

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...

97 points James Suckling: "Very complex aromas of blueberries and blackberries with hints of cheese and wet earth. Hot stones, too. Full-bodied, dense and layered with lots of firm yet polished tannins and a gorgeous finish. Succulent. So delicious. You'll want to drink this now! But better in 2020. " (04/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like many other 2015s, there is a little more ripeness in the 2015 Adrianna Vineyard Fortuna Terrae, and the year is more marked and more noticeable in this bottling. It's juicy, floral, expressive and m...

95 points James Suckling: "A very intense hot-stone character with some limestone and iron. Blackberries and dark tea. White salt,too. Full-bodied, round and juicy. A rich finish. Flamboyant. Drink now or hold." (04/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Adrianna Vineyard River Stones is from the stonier part of Adrianna Vineyard in Gualtallary, from vines right next to the river bed at 1,349 meters in altitude, a part that tends to produce more austere wines. There is higher ripeness compared with 2014 and 2016. Even though it might ...
