2018 Antucura Malbec Mendoza

SKU #1464459 Vinous

Outer quote mark Bright dark red. Aromas of blackberry, black cherry, licorice, menthol and herbs. A step up in texture and depth from the Uno Malbec, but still with some menthol and herbal coolness to its dark berry fruit. Finishes with good breadth and rather smooth tannins but only moderate length and a repeating note of greenness. (ST) Inner quote mark (9/2019)

K&L Notes

Antucura is situated in the high-elevation Vista Flores region of Argentina’s Uco Valley and home to an impressive array of elegant, French-influenced wines. Anne-Caroline Biancheri, owner and founder of Antucura, fell in love with the beauty of Vista Flores, and feels that it is truly her home. In the ancient language of the region, “Antucura” means “Sun Stone,” and indeed the sun is felt here. At the high elevation of 3,445 feet above sea level, Vista Flores sports cold nights and hot days, and little mitigation in these diurnal swings. This intense climate, together with the limestone soils, makes for very vibrant wines with bold personalities.

This is everything you’re looking for in this versatile varietal. It’s both hearty and bold with a fuller body and bright, ripe fruit flavors, without being at all tannic or overpowered by oak. The little kick of peppery spice on the finish makes this a very food-friendly wine. It’s big enough to stand up to a steak, and yet smooth enough to serve cocktail style with light appetizers or all on its own.

Fresh dark red fruits. Amazing aromas of violets and dried cranberries. A hint of herbal note on the palate such as mint and sage but it is very balance and all the flavors are in harmony. Definitely a treat for a great price.
