2018 Bodega Chacra "Cincuenta y Cinco" Pinot Noir Rio Negro Patagonia
Top Pick!
98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Cincuenta y Cinco follows the breathtaking 2017 with an extra degree of elegance and filigree. This wine has reached an amazing level of sophistication and nuance. There are tannins there, and there's more power and clout than the lightish color and perfumed nose might point at. 2018 was an easier vintage to ferment; they had very good yields and natural balance in the grapes that were extremely healthy. They didn't need to cool down the grapes because the weather was colder, even if they picked a little...

91 points James Suckling: "This has a brambly array of ripe red berries and blackcurrants, leading to a palate with very smooth, supple tannins holding blueberry flavors long and fresh. Drink or hold." (03/2019) K&L Notes: The Inkarri is a fresh & elegantly styled wine that delivers layers of crushed plum, macerated raspberry, is framed by anise and fruitcake, and has a lingering espresso note. This wine is made with certified organic grapes, is Certified Biodynamic by Demeter, and is Vegan.

2015 Tapiz "Alta Collection" Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza
Back In Stock!
93 points James Suckling: "This is a fantastic wine for the vintage with a clarity and brightness on the nose and palate. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. 2015 was a tough year for Argentina but this is a beautiful wine. " (04/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The classical 2015 Alta Collection Cabernet Sauvignon was produced with grapes from their estate vineyards in San Pablo. The grapes fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts after a cold soak. The wine matured in new and second use French o...

92 points James Suckling: "Here is the Salta mountain freshness! A really enticing combination of melon, floral and a wide spectrum of delicate citrus aromas. I love the balance of juicy fruit and crisp acidity that gives the bold, long finish a lot of life. Screw cap (JS)" (03/2019) K&L Notes: From biodynamically farmed Torrontes, 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! Very floral aromas with juicy yellow plums and white peaches lead to a lovely, slig...

94 points Decanter: "Intense floral fragrance combined with ripe peach, melon and a stony mineral edge on the palate. Lovely fruit purity and concentration. Drinking Window 2019 - 2022 (panel tasting)" (07/2019) 91 points James Suckling: "Fresh and generous citrus and melon aromas with a hint of mint, plus a juicy palate with very bright acidity, making this an appealing and refreshing dry white. The clean and polished finish makes this very food-friendly. A blend of 85 per cent torrontés and 15 per cent riesling. Drink now. Screw cap. " (02/2019) Vi...

90 points Vinous: "Saturated bright ruby. A note of raisiny ripeness to the aromas of redcurrant, dark cherry, licorice, pepper and spices. Plush, slightly herbal, fine-grained wine with lovely sweetness and some torrefaction oak notes from the 100% new oak. Very Cabernet in its herbal/chocolatey character but doesn't convey quite the harmonious ripeness, fruit sweetness or class of the Malbec. Finishes savory, energetic and firmly tannic, with lingering chocolate and herb notes and sneaky rising persistence. This wine, too, should develop gracefully in ...

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 La Tremenda is sourced from the vineyard that names the wine, from the estate El Chaconero in the village of Villena, a plot at 600 meters altitude planted some 25 years ago. It fermented in stainless steel and matured in French barriques for six months. 2016 is a cooler year than 2014 or 2015, and the wines reflect it. It was not an easy year; they had to do a strict selection of grapes, and it paid off. It has the character of the variety, with its elegant rusticity with a fresh, herbal twist and a pal...

95 points James Suckling: "A very intense nose of blackberries, mulberries, violet extract, charcuterie, Indian spices and really flamboyant licorice. Full body, lots of juicy, grainy tannins, tangy acidity, tons of dark plum fruit and a long, chewy finish. With a little less wood and more polish, this would have scored even higher." (01/2019) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "A blend of 40 percent Malbec with equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon, and Merlot, this comes primarily from the Uco Valley and Luján de Cuyo. It aged 18 months in barrels, mostly used, and ...

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Another beautiful wine is the 2016 Malbec Appellation Lunlunta, an appellation blend from older vines and the sandy, loamy soils of Lunlunta appellation, a sub-appellation of the Maipu IG. It offers more kirsch, blackberries, toasted spice, and dried herb aromas and flavors and is ripe, supple, and sexy on the palate. Beautifully balanced and medium to full-bodied, it has loads of upfront charm and appeal and is perfect for drinking over the coming 5-6 years." (02/2019) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Appellat...

2017 Susana Balbo "Signature" Malbec Mendoza
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "The aromas of this wine are so wonderful with blue fruit, blackberries and black tea. Ample violet undertones. Medium to full body, very fine tannins and a fresh and clean finish. Drink or hold. (JS)" (03/2019) K&L Notes: Beautiful deep violet color with exploding aromas of blackberries, blueberries and black cherries. It is a wonderfully floral, pure expression of Uco Valley. On the palate it has enticing flavors of plum, berries, with a bright acidity and a lick of chalk. Well-integrated oak and filigree tannins. Its finish...

91 points Decanter: "With input from an Italian consultant winemaker, Bodega Renacer has produced a beautiful Malbec here. Succulent, ripe dark fruit comes to the fore, with fresh tobacco notes behind the plum, damson and blackcurrant flavours. Spicy on the long finish. (JB)" 90 points James Suckling: "Aromas of fresh sliced strawberries, blueberries and watermelon. Medium to full body, round and velvety tannins and a fresh and drinkable finish. Drink now." (04/2018) 90 points Wine & Spirits: "A refreshing Malbec from the heights of the Andes in the U...

2018 Bodega Chacra "Sin Azufre" Pinot Noir Rio Negro
Top Pick!
96 points James Suckling: "This has crushed red flowers, some deeper, darker, brambly fruit and a stony-graphite edge that delivers a core of red-cherry and berry aromas and flavors in a very unfettered, open-knit and complete mode. The texture is ethereal and plush, really fresh and concentrated. Needs some air and turns floral as it opens. No sulfur added. Drink now. (JS)" (03/2019) K&L Notes: Piero Incisa della Rocchetta, the grandson of Sassicaia founder Mario Incisa della Rocchetta, ended up in Patagonia after tasting a bottle of Pinot Noir he fel...

As Sauvignon Blanc is to New Zealand, Torrontes is to Argentina. This fun, kicky label is no mass-market brand. It's a very small production project from the northern Cafayate region, ideal for growing crisp white wines like this. Importer Michael Skurnik tells the story: "The dos minas ("two chicks" in Argentine slang) of the name are Lucía Romero, who runs Bodega El Porvenir de los Andes in Cafayate, Argentina, and Heather Willens, who came to Buenos Aires via California and has experience working with small wineries in Argentina. Both are champions of...

2018 Passionate Wines "Del Mono" Tinto Tupungato
Top Pick!
91 points Vinous: "Bright medium red-ruby. Brambly blackberry, dark raspberry, black pepper, mocha and minerals on the nose, plus a touch of reduction. Then rich, broad and almost chocolatey on the palate, offering a fine-grained texture and very good concentration to its sweet, juicy dark berry, pepper and spice flavors. This is a fairly substantial, chocolatey-ripe wine for a Michelini brother (In this case, Matías) but I'm not complaining. Harmonious acidity and salty minerality give this wine early deliciousness but there's no rush to drink it. Finis...

92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The other appellation blend is the 2016 Malbec Appellation La Consulta, which comes all from the La Consulta district in San Carlos, composed primarily of sandy soils, with some rounded pebbles thrown in for good measure. Coming from 35-year-old vines and brought up in 35% new French oak, it has considerable elegance as well as a seamless texture. Lovely notes of more red fruits, rose petals, violets, and leafy herbs all flow to a medium to full-bodied, beautifully balanced, silky Malbec that has loads of upfront charm and appeal....

94 points James Suckling: "Lots of citrus peel and sage, but also something flinty. Great freshness is married to discreet creaminess on the palate in a really exciting wa. Then the minerals kick in at the long, racy finish. A blend of semillon, sauvignon blanc and torrontes fermented and matured in French oak. Drink now." (04/2018) 92 points Vinous: "(for this blend Balbo uses the same Torrontés fruit that goes into the Signature Barrel Fermented Torrontés but ages it in second-use barrels; the Sémillon is done in concrete eggs and the Sauvignon Blanc...

This Malbec is always a terrific value, showcasing Mendoza fruit with a California style, and at a great price. No wonder, since Viña Cobos founder Paul Hobbs is a renowned maker of "cult" Cabernet and Pinot Noir in California. He got his start in Argentina back in the 1990s, consulting for Nicolas Catena.

93 points Vinous: "Saturated dark ruby. Superripe, even slightly porty aromas of black cherry, beefsteak tomato, roasted plum and chocolate. Extremely dense and bulletproof, with a distinctly roasted quality to its fruit that's countered by surprising acidity. I suspect this wine will need another five years of bottle aging to harmonize. Finishes with exotic mocha and stewed tomato notes, a mounting medicinal quality and strong building tannins. Like a few past vintages of this one-off, reportedly from the highest vineyard in the world, this Malbec is ju...

92 points James Suckling: "Brimming with blueberry, violet and bitter chocolate notes, this is an extravagant yet very fresh and well-structured expression of Salta Malbec. If you can give it until 2020, then the bold, dry tannins will soften and may make it more elegant." (04/2018) 90 points Vinous: "Bright full ruby. Aromas of black cherry, dark raspberry and licorice, plus oak notes of mocha, espresso and chocolate. Densely packed and chewy if bit less complex and deep than the 2016 Autentico, with black cherry and chocolate flavors dominating. Here...

Eduardo Soler and two friends started Ver Sacrum in 2012 with the concept of growing and vinifying Rhône Varietals. Their winemaking ethos focuses on fresh, low alcohol, lighter skin contact, native yeast, honest, and easy drinking wines. All grapes are hand harvested and most are foot crushed as they believe in minimum intervention in the vineyards and winery with no corrections, filtration, or pump overs.
Price: $18.99

48% Malbec, 45% Bonarda, 7% Semillon Grapes come mainly from vineyards in Luján de Cuyo and Medrano, Malbec and Semillon grapes are co-fermented, while Bonarda is vinified separately before the final blend. The wine is then aged for a minimum of 9 months in concrete vats. No oak aging. This is the best/most delicious history lesson to be had. Before Argentine Malbec conquered the world this is the type of red that you would find. It is juicy fresh and lively with easy tannins and charming red fruits. This wine was ment for drinking, not pondering. G...

James Suckling: "This is quite rich and has some positive tannins, but is already rather developed. The berry fruit character is on the muted side. Drink now." (04/2018) Wine Enthusiast: "Cherry and plum aromas are as they are, with only a touch of creamy oak influence. This Patagonian Malbec is linear and compact in feel, while flavors suggest jammy raspberry and plum. Red fruit notes linger on a finish with mild tannins. (MS)" (08/2019) Wine Spectator: "Lithe, with a deep current of red plum, mineral and green herbal flavors that are matched to fre...

93 points James Suckling: "Tight and focused with chewy yet polished tannins and a lovely texture. Shows tension and intensity. Medium to full body. Flavorful finish. Drink now or hold." (06/2017) 91 points Vinous: "Good dark ruby-red. Blackcurrant, high-toned spices, licorice and mint on the nose, plus a floral note that reminded me of Cabernet Franc. A supple, concentrated, wonderfully pliant blend with a spicy personality to its blackberry, licorice and menthol flavors. Finishes chewy, savory and very long, with sweet tannins. This wine boasts excel...

Vinous: "Full ruby-red. Aromas of blueberry, blackberry, menthol, chocolate and herbs. Round and spicy, showing more sweetness and depth than the Terroir Unico Pinot Noir. The wine's blackberry fruit is framed by integrated acidity and complicated by a suggestion of saline minerality. Finishes with gentle tannins and lovely length. Good sneaky flavor intensity here. (includes fruit from four growers, but 50% of this wine comes from Tupungato Winelands in Gualtallary, which the Michelini brothers rent and control; made mostly with destemmed grapes, and wi...

97 points James Suckling: "Very deep and dark with enormous concentration but also a lot of finesse. There’s some toast and chocolate from oak, as well as great freshness. Stunning harmony and a very long finish that tells a totally fascinating story. A blend of 73% cabernet sauvignon and 27% malbec. Drink in 2020." (04/2018) 96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "One of the standouts in this stacked lineup is the 2014 Nicolas Catena Zapata, 75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Malbec sourced from a multitude of vineyards (La Pirámide, Domingo, Adrianna and Nicasia Vineyar...

This is a decidedly "millenial" wine in both style and target audience, but it happens to be made by one, as well. Manuel Michelini is the early-20-something son of Gabriel Michelini, the man behind Zorzal and Gen del Alma, two of the the Uco Valley's most forward-thinking and avant-garde projects. Already the young Michelini is turning heads among critics and consumers alike with his vibrant, fruit-forward wines that come in at unbelievable prices when you consider the quality behind them.

98 points James Suckling: "A standout Pinot with such purity, complexity and fragrance on the nose. Beautifully ripe cherries and berries abound. Plenty of blue fruit. Very aromatic. The palate has a beautifully detailed thread of fine, gently assertive tannins. Great expression of Pinot Noir here. Long life ahead of it." (02/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The top-of-the-range 2017 Treinta y Dos is always released later than the other reds, as the élevage here is longer. The year was extremely low yielding and with natural concentratio...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Nicolas Catena Zapata is a blend of 60% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Malbec, and the balance Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc that spent 24 months in 100% new French oak followed by 24 months in bottle prior to release. It delivers an inviting bouquet of wood smoke, pencil lead, espresso, incense, lavender, black currant, and black cherry. This sets the stage for a full-bodied, powerful yet elegant, beautifully proportioned effort with great depth and volume. It conceals plenty of structure and will effortless...

Winemaker Notes: This Malbec shows notes of blackberries, warm blueberry pancakes, and maraschino cherries while being intensely layered with baking spices of clove, cinnamon, sage, licorice, and cedar. Light hints of orange peel, eucalyptus, white powdered sugar and red velvet cake dance around the core. The wine finishes with integrated earth components of soil, dry crushed leaves, and an animal quality that screams being alive. Finca Adalgisa is located in the Chacras de Coria sub region of Lujan de Cuyo of Mendoza,Argentina. The estate goes back thr...

A rich, ripe, fairly classic Chardonnay with old school California leanings except...this one is from Argentina! The California connection here is that noted consultant and winery owner Paul Hobbs owns Viña Cobos, and is making wines that have his stylistic stamp, but perhaps just slightly dialed back from the usual ripeness and fruitiness. Here we have an appley Chardonnay, with hints of toast (5% of the wine is aged in French oak, a small portion of which is new) and a genuinely crowd pleasing style. Very well made.

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The captivating 2017 Malbec Appellation Altamira has been produced with grapes from the same vineyard since 2015, next to the neighboring vineyard where they have now planted their own grapes. It's tremendously expressive and aromatic, and it seems to transcend the vintage. They couldn’t make the wine in 2016 because of the adverse conditions, but they came back really strong with this 2017, which has a chalky texture and a dry, austere and long finish. Really very good. (LG)" (10/2019) 92 points Vinous: "Dark ...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Jumping a few vintages, as the last time I tasted the 2008, the 2013 Gran Assemblage is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Franc from the same vineyard in Perdriel where the winemaker, year after year, sources the grapes for all his wines. All wines are hand-crafted, the grapes fermented in cement vats with indigenous yeasts. In this case, all the wine is put to mature in oak barrels, whereas most of the others are only partially oaked, yet there are no oak aromas in any of the wines, as t...


98 points James Suckling: "Aromas of cooked pears, apples, lemons and crushed stones. Salty, too. Full and deep with a solid core of fruit and a bright and citric finish. Very minerally and bright. Starts off slowly and then takes off. Drink or hold." (02/2019) 97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I tasted two vintages of the top whites, 2017 and 2018, and the wines perfectly show the conditions of each of the vintages, which were very different. Harvested very early to compensate the low yields and the warm end of the ripening season, the 2017 Wh...

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "2017 is possibly closer to 2014 or 2015, a dry year that produced a concentrated, healthy and powerful wine, and the 2017 Montesco Agua de Roca has 13% alcohol, the highest since 2011. The grapes ripened very fast, and yields were low. The wine is softer and balanced, with integrated alcohol. It has the character of the wine and the place where the grapes are grown (the same every year), and that character is stronger than the ripeness, as it's still vertical and with very good acidity. This is an austere white t...

92 points James Suckling: "A juicy and savory red with dried berry and iron. Some rust. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Has some backbone and structure. Drink or hold." (03/2019) K&L Notes: This Malbec is always a terrific value, showcasing Mendoza fruit with a California style, and at a great price. No wonder, since Viña Cobos founder Paul Hobbs is a renowned maker of "cult" Cabernet and Pinot Noir in California. He got his start in Argentina back in the 1990s, consulting for Nicolas Catena.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A step up in complexity and intensity, the 2015 Malbec Limestone Block is sourced from a single vineyard in the Chacayes zone where the soils are rich in limestone, hence the name. There is a little bit of Cabernet Franc here, and it's all fermented in concrete vats and matured in neutral, well-seasoned oak barrels. The palate is quite soft, with round tannins and moderate acidity. 24,000 bottles produced. (LG)" (12/2016)

98 points Decanter: "From the Adrianna Vineyard’s most chalk-rich soils. Pungent acidity, like a freshly sharpened razor. 80% of the wine is matured under flor, accounting for the saline, almost iodised notes. Notes of white fruit and intense minerality in a complex yet delicious and refreshing white. Drinking Window 2019 - 2024 (PT)" (01/2019) 98 points James Suckling: "A dense and bright chardonnay that shows incredible depth and freshness with dried pineapple, licorice, aniseed and lemongrass. Full-bodied, layered and very, very long. Linear and exc...


99 points James Suckling: "This is really incredible now. Cooked apples, mustard flowers, minerals and hints of stone. Full-bodied yet vivid and expansive with lightness and energy on the palate. Eye-opening acidity. It goes on for minutes. A great white, as always. Drink or hold." (07/2019) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the 2017 White Bones Chardonnay jumps out of the glass with its forward personality and its balsamic aromas that mix aromatic herbs and a minty touch. It's more exuberant than the 2018 or any of the White Stones...

92 points James Suckling: "A fresh and aromatic red with blackcurrant, fresh flower and light stem character. Medium body, firm and silky tannins and a crisp finish. Drink now or hold." (04/2018) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As with most of the high-volume cuvées, the 2016 Felino Cabernet Sauvignon mixes grapes from different origins, mainly Luján de Cuyo and Valle de Uco. It fermented in stainless steel vats, with 10% of the volume matured in new American oak barrels, and they also slowly introduced French barriques, for around one year. ...


98 points James Suckling: "This is a phenomenal malbec with intense blue fruits such as blueberries and blackberries. Black truffle, too. Full-bodied, bright and juicy with fantastic power and richness. Yet the acidity just keeps going. Volcanic salt and white peppers. A thoroughly breathtaking wine. Try after 2020." (04/2018) 97 points Decanter: "Of the three single-parcel Malbecs from Catena in the Adrianna Vineyard, this is by far the most radical. From heavy calcareous soils, this is more than fruit – it smells of stones and chalk, has a tense, sha...

98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I also tasted the 2014 Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard, which might take some months to come into the market. It has some balsamic aromas, medicinal hints, traces of orange peel, saffron and a touch of sweet spices. It's built around very fine tannins and a notable core of acidity that acts as backbone, giving it length and lifting up the finish. This is quite in line with the 2010 vintage, with power and freshness in a rare combination of clout and elegance only the very best wines manage to show. There...
