Wine SpectatorDark and powerful, yet elegant, with a delicious core of crushed raspberry, blackberry and damson plum notes tightly woven with silky tannins. The minerally finish lingers on with layered flavors of wildflowers, melted licorice and spice box.
Stephen Tanzer's IWCBright medium ruby. Utterly uncompromising aromas and flavors of blackcurrant, cherry pit, flowers and crushed rock. Savory, dusty and very light on its feet, with superb vinosity and clarity of flavor. Conveys an impression of strong saline extract and little in the way of easy sweetness. A wine of outstanding energy and class, finishing with a firm tannic spine, pungent minerality and uncanny subtle persistence.
MalbecThough Malbec is now widely known as a varietal wine made in Argentina, it is actually a French red-wine grape traditionally blended with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and others to produce Bordeaux wines. Ripe plum and blackberry define the nose. Tight tannins and an earthy, woody quality make Malbecs a great match for red meat. View all our additional Malbec items
ArgentinaWine lovers came to know Argentinean wines through an almost-forgotten grape from France: Malbec. In Mendoza, the center of Argentina's wine industry, sunny days, an arid climate and mountainous terrain create ideal growing conditions for Malbec to thrive. In addition to Malbec, Chardonnay and other noble grape varieties that flourish in Argentina, a little-known white grape called Torrontès is gaining favor. Look for wines from producers like Bodegas Renacer, Don Miguel Gascon and Navarro Correas. View all our items from Argentina
