  1. Altocedro La Consula Select 2013

    Altocedro La Consula Select 2013

    90 points James Suckling - A fine expression of Mendoza's highest altitude region, the Valle de Uco. This wine is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Tempranillo and Syrah. Rich red berry flavors accented by herbs and bouyant acidity, leading to a cherry scented finish. Learn More

  2. Altos La Hormigas Malbec 2009

    Altos La Hormigas Malbec 2009

    Opens with tarry, cooked aromas but with airing, oak and ripe, earthy berry notes squeak out. The palate is chewy and solid, with extract and tannic grab as well as smoky, sultry flavors of roasted black fruits and bouillon. Meaty and satisfying. Learn More

  3. Amalaya Malbec Blend 2014

    Amalaya Malbec Blend 2014

    90 points Wine Advocate - The entry-level red for Amalaya changed its name with the 2014 vintage and is now called 2014 Malbec, even if it still has some 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Syrah in the blend. Since it has 85% of Malbec it can be bottled as a varietal wine. From this vintage the wine is only produced with estate grapes, whereas in the past some were purchased. Tasting it next to the 2013 I felt a big jump in quality. The vintage was also very good for Malbec in Salta. It's very spicy, possibly from the Syrah and there are also some herbal aromas for the Cabernet, cracked peppercorns, some olives and balsamic aromas, with more depth. I feel the Syrah quite a lot here, both in the nose and in the palate where it added smoked bacon and mineral earthy notes. It also has more structure and clout than the 2013. A big step up in quality for this wine. Learn More

  4. Amalaya Malbec Blend 2015

    Amalaya Malbec Blend 2015

    91 points Wine Advocate - "The entry-level wine is called 2015 Malbec, even if it still has some 10% Tannat and 5% Syrah in the blend. 2015 saw 140 liters of rain, healthy grapes and good levels of acidity. The grapes come from seven-year-old vines that yielded 9,000 kilos per hectare, 100% from estate grapes. The grapes fermented with neutral yeasts after a four-day cold soak with a total maceration of some 20 days. 25% of the volume matured in used French oak barrels for ten months, while the rest was kept in stainless steel with fine lees. There is a smoky character that I believe comes from the skin of the grapes, which have a high impact from the sun—as with the higher altitude, the rays are much stronger and make grapes develop thicker skins. It made me think of a red from the Northern Rhône, mixing violets, bacon fat and great spiciness. They have replaced Cabernet by Tannat, and I think it has helped remove the herbal aromas and given more character to the blend. The palate is medium-bodied with great freshness and intensity, terribly tasty. This is so easy to drink, it can be dangerous... One to buy by the case, and great for by-the-glass. 695,000 bottles produced." -Luis Gutierrez, Dec 2016 Learn More

  5. Arboleda Chardonnay, Casablanca Valley 2015

    Arboleda Chardonnay, Casablanca Valley 2015

    95 Points Decanter Magazine - Elegant nose, understated, with spicy notes of clove, cinnamon and fresh toast. Then the wine emerges in the glass, layered, vigorous, with harmonious flinty, salty, citrusy and almondy character. It is profound, savoury-sweet in that way really good Chardonnay can be. An impressive wine with a tremendous energy. - Decanter Magazine, 7/20/16

    93 Points James Suckling - A chardonnay that shows sliced apple and pear aromas with hints of stone and mineral. Medium to full body, lively and very intense with bright acidity and lemon rind. Drink now. Screw cap. James Suckling, May 12, 2016 Learn More

    BenMarco Expresivo Malbec Blend 2014

    96 points James Suckling - This is great wine with fabulous transparency and clarity showing blackberry, blueberry and floral character. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a superb finish. 80% malbec and 20% cabernet franc. A wine that gives pleasure now but will be even better in 2020. Learn More

  7. Bodega Colome Estate Malbec 2015

    Bodega Colome Estate Malbec 2015

    93 points James Suckling - "A dense and very rich red with blueberry, sliced mushroom and earth character. Full body, yet tight and reserved. Gorgeous to drink now but will improve in the next few years." -James Suckling, May 23, 2016 Learn More

  9. Bodega Cruzat Clasico Brut Rose, Perdriel, Argentina

    Bodega Cruzat Clasico Brut Rose, Perdriel, Argentina

    91 points James SucklingLots of light strawberry on the nose with some yeasty aromas too. Flavorful and persistent with a bright finish. Drink now. James Suckling, May 21, 2016 Learn More
    $12.98
  10. Bodega Cruzat Clasico Brut, Perdriel, Argentina

    Bodega Cruzat Clasico Brut, Perdriel, Argentina

    The NV Cuvee Reserve Extra Brut from fruit from Tupungato in the Uco Valley, a fresh, high altitude zone ideal for the production of sparkling wines, surprised me with its complex aromas of meat broth (something I always link to umami), no doubt more complex given the 24 months in contact with its lees. The palate is light to medium-bodied, with plenty of acidity and freshness that more than compensate the six grams of residual sugar. A great sparkling. The problem with all these non-vintage wines is how to differentiate lots produced through the years. Drink now. Learn More
