Cuyo Malbec

Bodega Norton

Reserva Mendoza Malbec 2014

This wine pitch-dark and carries dark aromas on its nose. Blackberry and black currant are predominant, with smoke and a rack full of holiday spices completing the scene. On the palate, rich bold fruit comes forward on a wave of pepper and minerals. The acidity is bright and the tannins are perfect, enough for a meat feast but not too much for sipping. The savory aspect lingers long on the finish. It drinks like a youthful wine that is beginning to take the character of its few years. — 2 days ago

Bodega Bressia

Profundo Malbec Blend 2012

Great first wine to break a two week drinking hiatus. Delivers the goods in a elegant package. Red and black currant, fine herb, tobacco, bay leaf. Explosive nose. Spot on delicious somewhere between old world and new world. — 8 days ago

Dominio del Plata (Susana Balbo)

Late Harvest Malbec

Fantastic! Rich and opulent dark red fruits, chocolate and warm spice. A delicious, lighter option to port. Perfect with dark chocolate. — 21 minutes ago

Chakana

Ayni Lujan de Cuyo Malbec 2015

Drinks extra fresh and lively. Superb acidity that's lifts the blue and black fruits. A little "magic marker" on the nose that translates to the palate which subtracts a point, but this is quality. — 8 days ago

9.1

Deep ruby red and completely coats the glass. A bit tight on the nose with cocoa powder, red plums and cherries. Heavy tannins (7/10) and medium plus bodied. A bit of tobacco and smokiness on the palate, with some white pepper, black cherries, a little leather and earthy rounded mouthfeel. Dry and long finish with a bit of heat coming through. Give it some time to breathe. Drink till 2024. — 25 days ago

9.0

2016 vintage. You can really smell the fruit. The nose is much sweeter than the taste. Jammy notes of berries with a huge hint of prunes. The rich, dark, thick color foretells the taste to expect. Pared this with crab stuffed mushrooms, baba ghanoush, and wheat thins. This one makes me wonder why I don’t drink more Malbec. — 6 days ago

Tomero

Malbec Rosé

From the Uco Valley, fresh cranberry and raspberry with a touch of tobacco after sitting 15 mins, strange but interestingly pleasant! M acid and body with a tart finish. Nice with a poached egg over grilled asparagus. — 2 days ago

The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree Malbec 2015

Too you. Opened up nicely though. Smooth tannins, dark red fruit, tar. Not bad for the price though maybe lacking a bit of complexity at least at this age. — 4 days ago

Bodegas Nieto Senetiner

Lujan De Cuyo Malbec 2015

From 1/2 DOs for Argentina's highest quality wine subregions so far. Delicious dark and complex chocolate and very juicy fruity smoky. Only problem for me was the color was very fuscia and I'm expecting opaque so not as extracted?.. Definitely not acidic or very tannic; just a glugger. Great wine — 24 days ago
