Cuyo Malbec


Republica del Malbec 2015

Boutique winery in Maipu Mendoza, that also owns vineyards in Uco Valley. This is a 100% Malbec. It’s the most full bodied, complex Malbec I have ever tasted. Fermented in egg shaped barrels. Dark berries, blackcurrant, heavy tannins, and smooth, well structured finish. Just amazing. — 9 days ago

Finca Bella Vista Perdriel Malbec 2013

This exudes such class. Big League/ Hall of Fame type wine for the area. Not cheap, but certainly worth the asking price. — 11 days ago

Lujan de Cuyo Gran Malbec 2014

The best Malbec I have ever had. Perfect balance of dark fruit, followed by peppery spice, heavy tannins and mild acidity. Very complex, full mouthy feel, perfectly structured and balanced. Paired perfectly with a medium rare, filet mignon. — 6 days ago

Could not agree more, this is my favorite Malbec!


4000 Mendoza Malbec 2013

Larger scale boutique winery from Uco Valley Mendoza. This is 90% Malbec with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon. Starts with delicate berry and floral notes. Although technically a full Malbec the Cab Sav provides nice depth and structure via medium tannins and acidity. Great design. — 9 days ago

Gran Reserva La Consulta Malbec 2016

Wow, what a Malbec. Produced by a renowned Lebanese winemaker who owns Alandes vineyards. Full bodied (for a Malbec)
delicious dark berries (blueberry, plums, black currant), with complementary tannins, and hints of peppery notes. It’s complex but overall very elegant tasting almost like a Californian Cab Sav. One of our favourites.

Taninos macios, boa acidez e média persistência.
Tomei com um corte alto de picanha e harmonizou bem.

Familia Cecchin

Roble Mendoza Malbec 2012

Picked this up from the winery in Mendoza. Vanilla and dark fruit aromas show up front, with round but restrained blackberry and spice on the palate. ‘Roble’ means ‘oak’ in Spanish, but it’s not overdone. I enjoyed this. — 9 days ago

Larrain Lasmartres Toso & Undurrage (LTU)

Valle De Uco Malbec 2013

Beautiful nose. delicious fruity bouquet. Medium bodied. Opened up beautifully after 30 to 40 minutes. Honestly a great Malbec. It’s a predominately fruit forward wine with elegance and depth. It had mild tannins that just accentuate the berry notes. No spice. No acidity. Extremely smooth. Paired well with eggplant to start and gnocchi with ragu to finish — 3 days ago

Glad you enjoyed it! Your definitely right, some of the Malbecs from Mendoza can be more straightforward.

La Finca

Mendoza Malbec 2016

The tannins are a wee bit rough at first, but there's nice bright red fruit. Quite a juicy nose. More vanilla and chocolate undertones come to say "howdy" as it opens up a little. Hey, as long as it's a fan of this porterhouse I just grilled, I'll be a happy Matts.

Update: they're pretty agreeable playmates. The chocolate and oak just keep on building. Yeeha!
