2016 Gen del Alma "Ji Ji Ji" Malbec Pinot Noir Gualtallary Top Pick!
2016 Gen del Alma "Ji Ji Ji" Malbec Pinot Noir Gualtallary

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The red 2016 JI JI JI is a 50/50 blend of Malbec and Pinot Noir from eight-year-old vines in Gualtallary (Tupungato Winelands) on granite and limestone soils with a 20-centimeter layer of sand that fermented together with carbonic maceration. The wine was bottled unoaked. It feels a lot more serious and complete than previous vintages, and they attribute it to the superb vintage in Gualtallary, which surely affected the wines; ripeness was very slow, and there are more floral aromas.

2014 La Posta del Viñatero "Pizzella Vineyard" Malbec Mendoza

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard is from Altamira. The vineyard was originally 17 hectares and the owner planted an additional 12 (and is planting yet more), so there is room to grow. This is the most harmonious, elegant, and at the same time backward, of the three single-vineyard Malbecs. Not as showy as the others in the palate either as the tannins are austere and the chalky minerality sticks to your teeth. The differences between the three Malbecs is clear as they each reflect where the grapes grow. The riper, warmer one from Ugarteche, the fresher, ...Read More »

2015 Valentin Bianchi "Elsa Bianchi" Malbec Mendoza

Wine Spectator: "Bright and juicy, with fresh flavors of red plum, currant and raspberry. Offers a plush, round finish. (KM, Web-2016)" K&L Notes: 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."

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.

Suave and fine-grained, with the floral quality repeating in the mouth. Savory and light on its feet; a distinctly elegant, sexy Malbec with good ripeness and light pepper and herb nuances.

Atamisque is the first property you will see upon entering the Uco Valley from the north. Run by Loire Valley native Jean Edward, who was instrumental in establishing Chandon's Argentine operations in the 1970s, Atamisque is making a very good range of wines from their own vineyards. This Malbec comes from 80-year-old vines growing on two separate vineyards in the Uco Valley. A nose of rich, macerated black cherries is intense, nearly pungent, and leads to a palate of big juicy fruit, but with surprising freshness as well. Subtle savory tones and a hint ... Read More »

2014 Familia Zuccardi "Q" Malbec Valle de Uco

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Malbec Q is sourced from La Consulta (Altamira) and Vista Flores. This wine has changed since 2010; now only 30% to 50% of the wine is oaked and the rest is matured in cement vats. The oak is imperceptible, and there are plenty of aromas of violets and blueberries with some aromatic herbs, all fruit. What Sebastian Zuccardi looks for is to have some herbal/countryside aromas and a lively palate with good acidity, which is what you find here. This is really tasty, with a fine, chalky tannin (from Altamira?) and just plain great. (LG)" (8/2015)

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...
