2016 Bodegas Miras Malbec Joven Rio Negro

SKU #1324194

Bodegas Miras is a project fronted by Marcelo Miras, who grew up in a vine growing family from San Rafael (Mendoza). He settled though in General Roca, Patagonia to begin his own project, where he makes fantastic Pinot Noir, Malbec, and (we suspect) experiments with tiny quantities of other grape varieties which will hopefully be revealed as the project continues to evolve. All of Marcelo's wines are honest, very easy to drink and possess a beautiful delicacy. It has been an exciting year here for Argentinian wines, and we may have found a new favorite this fall with the fantastic wines of Marcelo Miras.

This Malbec has lovely, fresh, plum fruit with accents of black pepper, as well as the fine tannin structure present in Miras' Pinot Noir. Honest, purely fruited, bright and so easy to drink, I would not hesitate to recommend this graceful Malbec to fans of medium bodied or even lighter wines, including Pinot Noir. Highly recommended!

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Malbec

- These days if you're drinking a Malbec it's probably from Argentina. The most planted grape in that country, varietally-labeled Argentine Malbecs are one of the wine market's great values, prized for their slight herbal component and dark, luscious fruit. Structurally, Argentina's Malbecs are much different than those grown in the grape's native France; they are riper, fruitier and fleshier. In France, the best iterations of Malbec can be found in the Cahors, where it can be quite decadent. It is also planted in the Loire Valley, where it is called Côt and is often blended with Cabernet Sauvignon or Gamay, and in Bordeaux, where it has fallen from favor in many of the region's great blends because it is difficult to grow. In the United States, the varietal is frequently added to Meritage wines - Bordeaux style blends - but it is rarely found on its own.
Country:

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
