2021 Altocedro "Año Cero" Malbec Mendoza

SKU #1691502 93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark 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) Inner quote mark (9/2022)

92 points Descorchados

Outer quote mark Winemaker Karim Mussi's style of reds in general—and his malbecs in particular—tends to be generous and broad. And this is a good example. From vineyards in the La Consulta zone of the Uco Valley, this malbec is rich in sweet flavors of black fruit and spices. One of those reds for hamburgers or pizzas but also to accompany a good barbecue. Inner quote mark (1/2022)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Attractive freshness here with some currants and berries. Restrained cocoa powder and a herbal undertone, too. Juicy fruit wrapped by firm, chewy tannins. Showing a bit of reduction now. Give it a year or two to come around. Inner quote mark (3/2022)
