Cuyo Malbec

Mascota Vineyards

Unánime Malbec 2016

Deep red purple in the glass with an opaque core. Inviting nose of blackberry compote. Full-bodied palate of blackberry, black plum, and cocoa covered black cherry. Medium acidity. Medium tannins. Medium long finish. A New World Malbec that could match Old World dishes. Ready for burgers, prime rib, and all in between. Drink now through 2024. — 7 days ago

Uco Valley Old Vine Malbec 2015

Deep Ruby with purple edges, aromas of red and black fruit with floral spice notes. On the palate rich ripe blackberry and plum with pepper spice and oak notes. Good balance, big ripe tannins, long finish ending with spicy zest. Better an hour after opening. — 17 days ago

Great expression of Malbec. Have to check on the price but can easily be an every day Malbec. Got at Trader Joe’s. — 3 days ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

River Stones Vino De Parcela Adrianna Vineyard Malbec 2014

Great nose with almond paste, milk chocolate, cherry, some tobacco and cedarwood.
In the mouth lush and long. Tannins not completely integrated but very good wine.
Paired with pork ribs whoa!

Finca Altamira Mendoza Malbec 2014

This is excellent Malbec, dark purple in the glass with a great nose of blackberry, plum, cigar smoke, violet and burnt toast. The palate is fruit forward with some acid which is somehow refreshing as opposed to sharp. Nice long rounded finish with extra layers of oak and spice. There’s loads going on here and I have no doubt this will smooth out even further in the coming years, saving some to try on day two. Best I’ve had from Argentina for sure. — 11 days ago

Excellent example from a very good Mendoza producer.

Mendoza Malbec 2018

Earthy notes, maybe a hint of mushroom? That's also reflected in its taste, in my book, while my wife noted its dryness Not bad. — 2 days ago

Uno Mendoza Malbec 2016

well balanced. A little vanilla, some caramel, red fruit, raisins. Not much spice. Almost port-like. NF thought it was pretty good too — 7 days ago

Bramare Rebon Estate Malbec 2017

In direct battle against de Pago (Otazu) on day 1 we thought more refinement in the Pago. The acids (lime zest) in the Bramare are very present on day 1.
Now on day 2 the air did its thing and it drinks beautifully! It remains fresh in style though.
It needs a decant of a few hours.

Cruz Alta

Grand Reserve Malbec 2018

Un excelente vino de Argentina, Mendoza para ser exactos.

Cierto que es necesario dejar respirar por unos 90mins, pero el mismo no decepciona y nos recompensa la paciencia con un sabor excepcional.

Excelente para asados, pero tiene suficiente carácter y es lo sutil suficiente como para poderlo tomar solo...

Winemaker's Selection Reserva Malbec 2013

This is an incredible Malbec... never heard of it but bought it because I always likes Argentinian wines and Malbec is one of my favorites. And I was pleasantly surprise by this superb wine. I’ll get more if I can still find it. — 10 days ago
