2013 Bodega DiamAndes "Perlita" Malbec-Syrah Mendoza Top Pick!
2013 Bodega DiamAndes "Perlita" Malbec-Syrah Mendoza

93 points James Suckling: "A beautifully layered red with dark chocolate, berry and light vanilla character. Full body plus ultra-fine tannins and a long, flavorful finish. Delicious now." (7/2014) K&L Notes: Winery history: "In 2005, the Bonnie family, owner of the renowned Château Malartic-Lagravière (Grand Cru Classé de Graves) and of the Château Gazin Rocquencourt (Pessac-Léognan), decided to leave France in search for new horizons in the world of wine. It all began with the acquisition, along with their partners, of a single 130-hectares (321 acres) block of land in the heart of the Uco V... Read More »

2012 Haut-Monplaisir "Tradition" Cahors

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Ripe, almost sweet, fruit is full of delicious black plum and berry flavors. The wine is rounded, opulent and generous to a fault. A solid core of darker tannins hold all this richness together. Drink from 2015." (3/2015) K&L Notes: These days, when you think of Malbec you often think of Argentina. But Southwestern France's Cahors appellation is the ancestral home of this black grape, situated in the high country (Haut Pays), equidistant from the Atlantic, the Pyrenees, and the Mediterranean. It is drier than Bordeaux or the Languedoc in fall and distinguished by its... Read More »

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."

2013 Pascual Toso Malbec Maipú

90 points James Suckling: "Soft and delicious with chocolate, plums and hints of walnuts on the nose and palate. Full-bodied, fruity and savory at the finish. Delicious now. Screw cap." (8/2014) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good dark red. Musky aromas of redcurrant, cherry, coffee, plum and cedar, plus hints of game and leather. Supple and on the soft side, with good texture and a hint of rusticity to the broad plum and leather flavors; more red fruits than black. Finishes with a touch of sweetness and easygoing tannins."

2012 Trapiche "Broquel" Malbec Mendoza

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "With a warm nose of plum and blackberry, this sports a juicy, wiry palate, with woody weight. Raspberry, plum, toast and leather flavors finish earthy and lightly baked, with leftover oak that needs to be absorbed." (5/2015) James Suckling: "An attractive wine with blueberry and lemon character, a medium body and a fresh finish. A little lean but delicious." (7/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Broquel Malbec is a smoky, serious, aromatic, ripe yet elegant style of Malbec, with clean flavors of cinnamon-coated black cherries, fine tannins and good freshness to balance the high alcohol.

Finely textured, this is packed with tar and roasted plum notes, showing plenty of licorice snap and dark chocolate accents on the powerful finish. Best after 2020." (2/2014)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Malbec comes from old vineyards in La Consulta and a dash from Gualtallary in the Uco Valley.

(6/2014)90 points Wine Spectator: "This is dark, with a racy edge to the cassis, crushed plum and raspberry notes, gliding along a full-bodied frame. Hints of cream and mocha balance the tannins on the finish." (11/2013) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2012 Q Malbec is sourced from La Consulta and Vista Flores from stony, sandy and calcareous soils in the Uco Valley.

2011 Bodegas Hinojosa "H" Malbec Mendoza

Located between the towns of Tunuyan and Tupungato in the Uco Valley, Bodegas Hinojosa has somehow been flying undar my radar until quite recently. This is a terrific everyday red, offering plenty to like for both those experienced and new to Argentinean Malbec. Bright purple-fleshed fruit flavors are generous and wondefully fresh, a hallmark of the 2011 vintage. Soft, supple, vibrant fruit, hints of baking spices, perhaps a touch of candied violet. For $15, there is indeed a lot to like in this bottle of wine. (Joe Manekin, K&L Argentinean & Chilean win... Read More »

2012 Bodegas Colomé "Estate" Malbec Valle Calchaquí Salta

90 points Antonio Galloni: "Dark ruby-red. Aromas and flavors of bitter cherry and bitter chocolate are complicated by a whiff of game. Silky-sweet and supple, with beautifully integrated tannins contributing to an impression of suavity and carrying the fruit through a rather powerful, gripping finish. This should evolve gracefully. (ST)" (2/2015) K&L Notes: Produced from biodynamically farmed Malbec, with some Tannat blended in as well, this wine is produced from some of the highest elevation vines in production anywhere in the world, at more than 7,000 feet above sea level! Dark fruit flavors... Read More »

(7/2014)91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright ruby-red. Sexy aromas of blackberry, huckleberry, violet, mocha and nutty oak. Suaver and sweeter than the Signature Cabernet, with juicy, fruit-driven black plum, blackberry and violet flavors framed by harmonious acidity. Boasts excellent precision and inner-mouth tension for a wine in this price range. Finishes with a firm tannic spine, sneaky length and a hint of minty ...Read More »

2011 El Libre Malbec Mendoza

Produced from fruit grown in the Las Compuertas section of La Consulta, this is delicious Malbec for a very affordable price. Fresh red plum flavors and a juicy, forward texture suggest balance due to some thoughtful winemaking: fermentation and ageing in concrete tanks. Delicious (and gluggable) Malbec!

(8/2014)90 points Wine Spectator: "There's an enticing floral quality to the cherry, plum and wild berry flavors, with juniper notes midpalate. Features plenty of fresh acidity, with a complex, minerally finish that delivers hints of hoisin sauce. Drink now through 2020." (3/2015) Antonio Galloni: "Bright red-ruby.

2008 Aleph Malbec Mendoza

Roberto Rodriguez Canal, part-time San Francisco resident, is one of the partners in Platense wines, the company who produces Aleph and brings it to market. According to Roberto: "We do not produce wine to please mass demand. Our wines are not over-extracted and definitely not over-oaked, we produce limited quantity of wine with its own character." The Aleph name is a tribute to a short story penned by the great master of fiction, Luis Borges.

Wonderful length and refinement. About one-third new wood. Fabulous. Drink or hold." (6/2014) K&L Notes: While they also produce an entry-level bottling as well as an elite high-end bottling, it is this flagship estate wine that represents the soul of Bodega Mendel. A stellar value, this overachiever is sourced from 85-year-old, ungrafted vines and is truly handmade. Grapes are manually sorted and vinified in small lots be... Read More »

2010 Château la Caminade "Fut de Chene" Cahors

A blend of 97% Malbec with 3% Tannat, this Cahors is sourced from 30-50 year old vines planted in calcareous clay. The vineyard yields a modest and concentrated crop of grapes which are sorted before pressing and given an extended, temperature-controlled maceration to extract the best of what the fruit has to offer. The wine then spent 12 months in 50% new oak barrels before being bottled.

2013 Maipe Malbec Mendoza (3L bag in box) *item can not be shipped

This is exactly what we have been waiting for - Malbec in a box! Maipe produces wonderful Malbec and we have carried a few of their wines. This version, when recently tasted showed all the wonderful purple fruits you expect in a Malbec, with no discernible influence from oak. Just rich, but balanced and fresh darker fruit flavors. At $9.33 per liter, and given the bag in box's ability to preserve a wine's freshness for much longer, we are huge fans fo this one! (Joe Manekin, K&L Chilean and Argentinean wine buyer)

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.

No fireworks, just a great young Malbec. Drink now-2017. I had the chance to taste the wines of Carmelo Patti with his importer in Madrid and also visited his small winery in Mendoza.
