Cuyo Malbec

Achával-Ferrer

Finca Bella Vista Perdriel Malbec 2011

Founded in 1998, Achaval-Ferrer is a team of friends who make great wines. Was lucky enough to get a taste of this beauty. Aromas of fresh berry fruits with exciting spice and floral notes. On the palate cherry and rich blackberry flavors with tobacco and cacao. Sweet fine tannins, lingering well balanced with acidity with fresh mineral ending with berry fruit character.

Bodegas Escorihuela Gascón

Don Miguel Gascon Mendoza Malbec 2015

Oh damn. Well. The Gascon workaday bev Malbec is good but this is...deeper and has balance if not nuance. The art film that is arresting despite depth.
So. That.
The thing is I didn’t expect it to knock out the basic Gascon but damnnnn the ripe plus the ripe plus superb levels that are not...see/breathe/chemical through. Very pretty to look at and there’s more than meets the eye.

Old Vine Malbec 2015

Laura Catena is in charge here. All hail a wine with an awesome woman with a wine heritage killing it! Super into this. Give it a minute or so to get a breath of air then appreciate its voluptuousness. It is supple and earthy and has an attitude. This Malbec may just have made me its bitch. — 7 days ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

Alamos High Altitude Vines Selección Mendoza Malbec 2017

It’s good. It is friendly and just...well balanced. Not the most deep and complex but very smart. There is a brightness and cranberry with almost maple notes lingering in the background. That and a bucket of blueberry jam. But as I said, balanced. This jam knows how to balance work and family. — 14 days ago

Alta Vista

Malbec Blend 2011

Very dark fruits, medium to heavy bodied. cherries, dark plums, blueberry, black currants, espresso, and hints of dark chocolate followed by medium peppery notes and mild peppercorn. Mild chewiness and leather. It is excellently balanced, and a very elegant wine. Decanted for 40 minutes and enjoyed over several hours, as it continued to evolve. — 8 days ago

BlanCat Estate

Parcel Selection Malbec 2017

The nose really pops right away. Citrus and red fruit aromas but the citrus really shows. It's like the smell of one of my kids clementine oranges and some lemon zest. On the palate, its plum, black currant, and cedar. The tannins are soft with nice acidity.
Very good for $12.
