2013 Kaiken Malbec Mendoza Reserva

91 points Wine Spectator: "***Best Values*** This ripe red is filled with plenty of dark chocolate and Asian spice notes up front, wrapped around flavors of roasted plum, dark currant and wild herb.

2014 Tilia Malbec Mendoza

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The grapes of the 2014 Malbec were harvested very early and 70% of them fermented using carbonic maceration. The freshness is so impressive that I had to look at the alcohol level, which is half a degree lower than in the fresher 2013 vintage! There are some herbal aromas (think raspberry leaf), bright cherries and flowers, even lilies. The palate is very tasty, with some subtle bitter flavors, fine tannins and very good acidity. This is a triumph over the vintage. Bravo! This should be readily available, as they produced 500,000 bottles of it. And it's ...Read More »

2014 Pascual Toso Malbec Maipú

Pascual Toso is based in Mendoza's Maipú district, a historic, sun-drenched winegrowing region just southeast of the city. Their Malbec is a standby of the section for its supple, juicy red and dark fruits. A standby Malbec for a very attractive price. The 2014 vintage has not yet been professionally reviewed, but the 2013 bottling garnered 90 points from James Suckling.

2014 Valentin Bianchi "Elsa Bianchi" Malbec Mendoza

The Elsa Malbec comes from Valentin Bianchi's Doña Elsa estate in the cool reaches of San Rafael, Mendoza. With just a kiss of French oak, the rich fruit dominates this easy-drinking red, which has barely-there tannins. Invoke your inner-Argentine and drink this alongside grilled flank steak with a garlicky chimichurri. Many previous vintages recommended by Wine Enthusiast as a "Best Buy."

2014 Zorzal "Eggo-Tinto de Tiza" Mendoza

96 points Decanter: "Refreshing, beautiful nose with herbal and minty cool notes but also some chalky, mineral nuances so characteristic of the Gualtallary terroir. Bags of red fruits and lemon on the palate, vibrant, with a sensational invigorating freshness. Austere, precise, Malbec is one of the few grapes able to get such a pure expression. Texture is amazing, tannins are finely grained and oak is superbly managed. This is the treasure of Argentina." 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Eggo Tinto de Tiza is a blend from three different vineyards in Tupungato Winelands in Gualtallary.

2012 Chaman Malbec Reserva Mendoza

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Chaman Malbec Reserva is from La Consulta from vines planted in 2006, has ripe aromas of dark cherries, and is juicy and spicy, floral and perfumed, with ripe, sweet tannins, good acidity and pure, clean flavors that call for the next sip, like an explosion in the mouth, with a salty, tasty, mineral finish. Great Malbec and even better price. Drink now-2018." (4/2014) K&L Notes: Luis Reginato, a real student of winemaking as well as organic viticulture (he is a particular fan of Randall Graham's writings), produces this Malbec from fruit grown exclusively in...

2013 Superuco "Calcareo Granito - Tupungato" Malbec Uco Valley

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Calcáreo Granito de Gualtallary starts with lactic notes followed by ripe plum and ripe skin aromas from grapes grown at higher altitude, closer to the sun. It is a bit wild. The palate is tremendously mineral, with a chalky texture and incredible length. The tannins are ultra-fine and the wine is compact, very harmonious. This is the more austere and mineral of the three. Awesome value! (LG)" (8/2015) K&L Notes: Superuco is a very current look at the most exciting terroir's of Argentina's Uco Valley, as selected by the brothers Michelini, a merry band of gu... Read More »

2013 Zorzal "Gran Terroir" Malbec Valle de Uco

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Gran Terroir Malbec is a blend from different vineyards in Gualtallary, the highest part of the department of Tupungato in the Valle de Uco. The grapes fermented in cement vats and matured in used oak barrels for approximately one year. It's very perfumed and spicy, aromatic in a way that makes you go to the glass over and over again. The palate has the 2013 electricity and the Gualtallary chalkiness making for supple, tasty and saline flavors and a very long finish. Simply superb! (LG)" (8/2015)

Full body with silky tannins that give a beautiful texture that leads to ripe currant, orange peel and incense. Complex and complete. 50% Malbec from Agrelo and 50% Cabernet Sauvignon from Valle de Uco. So beautiful now but will age gracefully."

2014 Dominio del Plata "Crios de Susana Balbo" Malbec Mendoza

Crios means offspring (as in children). Susana selected a word to express the notion that these are wines that haven't quite 'grown up' to the same level of maturity as her more expensive Susana Balbo signature label wines, but they receive the same loving care and attention throughout the winemaking process. The label features a series of three connected and overlapping hands, an image inspired by a Mayan artifact. The three hands represent Susana and her two children.

2009 Vie Cave Malbec Maremma Toscana Top Pick!
2009 Vie Cave Malbec Maremma Toscana

Though it's relatively unusual to find Italian Malbecs, the grape, in fact, is very well suited to the climate and soils of Maremma, the region best known for producing famed Super Tuscans such as Sassicaia and Ornellaia. Its tufo soils are so revered that they inspired the name Vie Cave, which is a nod to the early Etruscan roads carved into this volcanic rock. The 2009 vintage started wet and mild, but by harvest time, the grapes were beautifully ripe and balanced. The resulting Malbec is luxurious, but maintains a nice core acidity to make it food fri...

There’s no oak, or anything extravagant about it, just pure and crunchy cherry flavors and flowery notes, with the mineral acidity to refresh roast duck." (2/2016)

(6/2015) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Malbec is produced with the grapes from an ungrafted vineyard planted in 1928 in Mayor Drummond in Luján de Cuyo at some 980 meters altitude and another one in Perdriel. After hand-sorting the grapes, the wine macerated in 50- and 80-hectoliter tanks for three weeks. It matured in a combination of new, second- and third-use French oak barrels for 12-14 months.

Drink or hold." (6/2015) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Malbec comes from two old vineyards in La Consulta (Rosas and Paganoto) and some 30% from Gualtallary in the Uco Valley. It has a nose of smoke and peat intermixed with violets, plums and dark cherries. The palate has a fine texture shaped by sweet, round tannins and good freshness. This is a very tasty Malbec.

Densely packed but light on its feet, with a mineral element and brisk acidity giving the wine an airy quality. The blackberry and espresso flavors show a touch of greenness as well as an almost port-like suggestion of dried fruits.

2010 Bodega Weinert "Carrascal" Red Blend Lujan de Cuyo

This is perhaps the most traditionally made red wine in Argentina. It's awesome, I love it, our staff loves it, and I suspect many of you looking for something different from Argentina might love it as well. A blend of 45% Malbec, 35% Merlot and 20% Cabernet, this is a savory, dark-cherry-fruited wine, with an excellent sense of individuality and style. Interestingly, the Cab and Merlot seem to stand out much more so than the Malbec in this year's bottling. Fermented in concrete and then aged in used Nevers oak, this is a distinctive wine that's very muc... Read More »

Fresh, sharp acidity and crisp minerality in the mouth serve to frame the crunchy cherries. Full of energy and nervosity, an exceptional wine with real tension and a lengthy finish." K&L Notes: Gen d'A is yet another Michelini brothers project, started by Gerardo Michelini and his wife Andrea Mufatto. They use fruit grown on a single vineyard in Gualtallary (within the Tupungato sub-zone). If you expect Malbec to be big, brawny and spicy, then this wine ... Read More »

Produced from all estate fruit, this delicious Malbec is a wonderful represenation of the Uco Valley's Gualtallary district, with bright, high toned red fruit further defined by excellent minerality. From vineyards with sandy loam over gravel, the wine is aged for 18 months in french oak, 50% of which is new. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
