91 points James Suckling: " Quite a structured cabernet sauvignon with plenty of ripeness. Some red chili pepper, tobacco, wet leaves, wild herbs and sweet currants. The palate is compact and flavorful with plenty of chewy tannins. A hint of coffee and spices in the medium-length finish." (03/2023)

94 points Descorchados : "This blend of 70% malbec is primarily from Lunlunta, 23% bonarda from eastern Mendoza, and petit verdot from the Agrelo zone on the southern bank of the Mendoza River. It was aged for a little over a year in barrels of different uses and today it’s a young and energetic wine with a load of firm tannins that are very reactive on the palate and a young and somewhat wild texture that needs time, not only for those tannins to soften up, but also so that the aromas and fruity flavors gain in complexity. Patience here." (01/2022) 93...

2021 Zuccardi "Q" Malbec Mendoza
Top Pick!
93 points Descorchados : "Zuccardi Q has a long history that begins with its first vintage in 1998, and it has been a road with many changes in style. We believe this latest version must be the best, the closest to the idea we have of a mountain malbec. It comes from vineyards in Paraje Altamira and Los Chacayes, both more than 1,000 meters above sea level, and it offers not only tart black fruits, but also herbal notes in a body of tense, firm, and sharp tannins. One of those malbecs that make your mouth water and bring images of a barbecue to mind." (1...

100 points James Suckling: "A complex, restrained and deliciously austere cabernet franc with damp earth, oyster shells, blueberries, thyme, rosemary and mushrooms. Super serious and chalky on the palate with lots of dissolved, minerally-textured tannins. Very long and uncompromising! An incredible cabernet franc from Gualtallary by Alejandro Vigil. Extremely pure, mineral and seductive. A fabulous cabernet franc that grows on the palate with remarkable tension and texture. I’d want to drink a bottle now even it can hold extremely well.

From the importer: "RJ Viñedos is a family owned winery run by its founder, Raul Joffre, and his four daughters. The winery began in 1996 when Raul purchased and refurbished a traditional cement tank winery in the Perdriel region of Lujan de Cuyo and planted a small vineyard in the Los Sauces region of the Uco Valley. They now have 60 hectares in the Uco Valley as well as holdings in Alto Agrelo and up north in the Calchaquí Valley of Salta. Their vineyards are sustainably farmed, and no chemicals are used in the vineyards or in the winery. Winemaker...

93 points Wine Advocate: "The peppery, spicy and elegant 2021 Appellation San Carlos Cabernet Franc is fresh, varietal, nuanced and complex while keeping the alcohol to a moderate 13.6%, which makes it attractive and easy to drink, with nice balance and very fine tannins. I usually like the precision and symmetry in this lively wine that has a velvety mouthfeel. 96,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2021.

It was bottled after eight months in oak barrels, and the wines show increasingly less oak.

Polished and driven. Delicious now. Drink or hold." (03/2022) 92 points Descorchados : "This is a selection from vineyards with sandy-silty soils in Los Chacayes, in the Uco Valley. It was aged for 11 months in barrels, all second-use, which means there is less influence from new oak. And it's a good way to approach this place at the foot of the Andes with its her...

2021 Familia Zuccardi "Concreto" Malbec Mendoza
Top Pick!
95 points James Suckling: "Such a brooding nose with black pepper, violet and fresh blueberry and blackberry fruit. Spicy and tight on the palate, but super polished, racy and refined. Medium-to full-bodied red with beautiful tannin tension and expressive, floral notes in the finish. Exemplary and authentic! So delicious now. Why wait?" (03/2022) 95 points Wine Advocate: "95+ points "The 2021 Concreto Malbec has to be one of the finest vintages of this wine despite its youth and still shy personality.

92 points Vinous: "The 2020 Malbec 006, from Mainqué, Río Negro, was a third barrel-aged for a year. An intense purplish red. It presents attractive aromas of violets and plum with hints of mint and blackberry. The tannins are reactive and grippy but finely grained so that they combine well with the precise, juicy freshness to fill up the palate. Best left in the bottle for a while. (JH)" (12/2021) K&L Notes: The Rio Negro creates an oasis in the the Northern part of Patagonia. The windy, high and dry Pampas are an ideal location for viticulture. The s...

95 points Wine Advocate: "The 2020 Inseparable comes from a warm and dry year, when they picked earlier and achieved a wine with lower alcohol than the 2019 that I tasted next to it, 14% here versus 14.5% in 2019—half a degree that was noticeable. It's juicier and more approachable too, and it feels fine-boned and balanced, with good acidity. Since 2019, the wine is kept unoaked, fermented and matured in concrete for 12 months. It's a more approachable vintage with fine-grained tannins. 6,000 bottles were filled in February 2021, as it was a lower-yieldi...

95 points Descorchados : "It may seem a bit closed at first, a bit shy, especially on the nose. But the aromas and flavors gradually reveal themselves in notes that are ripe, but floral and herbal too. It’s a succulent wine, yet with a web of firm tannins and acidity that puts in a refreshing appearance. This is a blend of 50% cabernet sauvignon, 23% malbec, 18% cabernet franc, and 9% petit verdot, all from vineyards planted in the Agrelo zone in the late 1990s."

2018 Famila Zuccardi "Aluvional" Gualtallary Mendoza Malbec
Back In Stock!
98 points Wine Advocate: "The intense and high-pitched 2018 Aluvional Gualtallary has finesse, which is the challenge in this very wild zone of the Valle de Uco. This is a powerful zone because of the light and the cold nights, which make it difficult to achieve elegance in the wines, but they have worked in this direction. As with other 2018s, the aromas and flavors are fully developed, so there's more complexity, nuance and depth than in the 2017s, which ripened faster and earlier. A superb mineral Gualtallary with contained ripeness and wildness. 8,00...

The nose presents plums, violets, sage and bitter orange. Dry and juicy on the palate, it moves with a nimble flow lifted by balanced acidity.

98 points Wine Advocate: "The 2020 Cheval des Andes was harvested from the last of February for the first time ever. It was Gabillet's second vintage at Cheval des Andes, and that year, he had to start without waiting for Pierre Olivier Clouet and Pierre Lurton from Cheval Blanc; when they arrived, they had finished picking the Malbec, which surprisingly was fresher in Las Compuertas (because of the higher percentage of clay?) than in Altamira (where the vines suffered more stress), saving the freshness. ....

It was pressed before the end of fermentation, and it then finished fermenting without skins (like a white) and matured in 1,800-liter oak foudre for 18 months.

Cropped from a year that delivered moderate alcohol and notable acidity, it fermented with full clusters in 2,000- and 5,000-liter oak foudres with indigenous yeasts.

It's the equivalent to the White Stones white, with a north-facing exposure, the warmer exposure, which in cooler years like 2019 works nicely.

It has less Cabernet Franc than other years because 2013 was fresh enough that just that pinch provided enough of the character they are looking for.
