2020 El Enemigo Chardonnay Mendoza (Elsewhere $26) (Elsewhere $26)
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "This has aromas of ripe apricots, buttercream, baked apples and pastries. Medium-to full-bodied with a creamy, round and almost oily texture. Lovely balance of ripe fruit and toasted-pastry notes with bright acidity. Delicious finish. Fantastic value, as always. " (03/2022) 95 points Wine & Spirits: "This wine showed its pedigree in our blind tasting, where its rich, layered orchard-fruit flavors were buttressed by well-integrated acidity. Pour a glass, put the rest into a decanter and enjoy the slow reveal of its white-miner...

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...

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. (LG)" (11/2022) 92 points Vinous: "The 2021 Cabernet Franc Catena Appellation San Carlos spent eight months in a third new barrels. Gar...

92 points Wine Advocate: "The 2020 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec is from a riper year than the 2019, but they still managed to keep the alcohol to a moderate 13.65% and retain enough freshness to make the wine fresh and balanced with some earthy rusticity and juicy fruit. It was bottled after eight months in oak barrels, and the wines show increasingly less oak. (LG)" (03/2021) 92 points Vinous: "The 2020 Malbec Catena Appellation Lunlunta hails from Luján de Cuyo on the alluvial river bank of the Río Mendoza and was aged for eight months in 35% new barr...

93 points Descorchados : "As you go up through the foothills of the Andes, the aromas and flavors (especially in cool years like 2021) become more floral and refreshing. In La Consulta, which is one of the lowest areas of the Andean Uco Valley (the altitude is just over 1,000 meters), this is already evident on a nose full of violet tones with a fruity background and smoky notes from the aging in barrels for eight months. The body is of medium intensity with soft tannins and juicy acidity that invites you to keep on drinking." (01/2023) 93 points Vinou...

95 points Wine Advocate: "My favorite of the Malbecs is the 2018 Eggo Tinto de Tiza, from a Mendoza year—mild and dry—and aged exclusively in concrete eggs, which to me is the Zorzal signature. This is elegant, nuanced and pure, with great aromatics, clean and precise and with a medium-bodied palate, with moderate ripeness and red rather than black fruit. This is superb. It matured for 10 months before it was bottled... (LG)" (03/2021) 93 points James Suckling: "Tar, pepper and blackberry aromas follow through to a medium body with very finely polished...

94 points James Suckling: "This shows aromas of ripe blackberries and blueberries, vanilla, licorice, dark chocolate and sweet tobacco. Hints of nut shell, too. Medium-to full-bodied with fine, polished tannins and a sleek, silky texture. Juicy, with delicious fruit on the palate and notes of walnuts and chocolate to close. Firm, flavorful finish. Drink or hold." (01/2023) 92 points Vinous: "The 2019 Clos de los Siete by Michel Rolland is a blend (50% Malbec, 24% Merlot, 11% Syrah, 7% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Cabernet Franc and 3% Petit Verdot) from the ...

92 points Wine Advocate: "The classical red 2019 Malbec Terroir Luján de Cuyo was produced with certified organic grapes from their property, selected from places with almost no clay and more limestone. Seventy-five percent of the volume was kept in the concrete tanks, where it fermented for 18 months, while the rest matured in 3,500-liter oak foudres. This has 13.5% alcohol and a pH of 3.74, and it's juicy and balanced, with a similitude with the Malbec Classico. It's from 24 hectares planted on their property, and this is selected from a small plot tha...

93 points Tim Atkin: ""Our classic Malbec,” is how Thibaut Delmotte describes this blend of four vineyards at different altitudes - Altura Máxima, Colomé, El Arenal and La Brava. Wonderfully juicy and scented, it’s the perfect introduction to the variety, with intense damson, blueberry and wild thyme flavours, palate-caressing tannins and a tangy finish." 92 points Vinous: "The 2020 Malbec Estate from the Calchaquí Valley, Salta was aged for 15 months in a quarter new barrels. A purplish ebony in the glass. The concentrated, intense nose offers notes ...

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...

93 points Vinous: "The 2021 Malbec Año Cero hails from La Consulta in the Uco Valley and was a third aged for 10 months in barrels. Purple in hue. It begins with bold notes of violet and plum followed by gentle hints of herb, black tea and lavender. In the mouth, the tannins are broad but refined with juicy freshness, bold flavor and a refined texture. “Here, the ripeness comes out in the aromas,” says Karim Mussi Safie, the oenologist behind this wine, and this certainly rings true in the glass. The year adds to the complexity. (JH)" (09/2022) 92 poin...

93 points James Suckling: "Blueberries and cherries with walnuts and blackberries, too. Medium body, firm tannins and a creamy texture. Tension and focus. Real malbec character. Excellent price. Sustainable. Drink now." (05/2022)
Price: $15.99

93 points Vinous: "The 2020 GY is a blend of 65% Malbec and 35% Cabernet Franc from Gualtallary, Uco Valley and was aged in an old foudre. A vivid purple in color, the pure, expressive nose offers aromas of fresh plum and blackcurrant with hints of herb and violet and a whiff of jalapeño. In the mouth, it’s compact with finely grained, chalky tannins, verticality and tension. A wine bursting with lively expression. (JH)" (11/2021)
