Cuyo Malbec

Achával-Ferrer

Finca Altamira Mendoza Malbec 2008

Intense garnet color. Plum, green pepper, sage, cherries and lead on the slightly edgy nose. Full body, with a solid tannic backbone. Long finish. With a little bit of air the cherry and vanilla aromas emerge on the palate. Good but feels a little disjointed. — 5 days ago

Voyage 5 Red Schooner Malbec

Wow! So dark it almost looks like coffee. Bold and definitely worthy of a Friday night! I bought it on recommendation of my fave wine guy but I’m not convinced it’s better at $50 than any $25bottle — 6 days ago

Reserve Valle de Uco Malbec 2014

Lovely Malbec, especially for the price point. Slightly fruity bouquet, dark ruby with hot pink edges, complex on the tongue, changed flavor nicely. Good mouthfeel and long legs with ample tannin structure. Pretty long finish. Not quite as fruity as some Malbec but holds its own in complexity and length to be a repeat purchase. — 2 days ago

At its peak. Amazing tertiary notes of mushroom and forest floor, with some herb and menthol notes. Fully resolved tannin. A beautiful wine. — 14 days ago

Agua de Piedra

Gran Reserva Mendoza Malbec 2011

Last from Contigo’s ship stores! Happy to save this for last. Drank this without recalling the price (~$15) and was super impressed with well how it aged. No need to decant, wine was robust but smooth around the edges with dark and red fruits. Delicious paired with a potato and scallion frittata. Would absolutely buy this again and allow it some time to mature. Another superb value from Argentina! — 10 days ago

Dominio del Plata (Susana Balbo)

Crios Mendoza Rosé of Malbec 2017

Sharp and tangy nose, reminding me of a French chardonnay. Taste of cherry, strawberry, and lemon, with nice acid and minerality. Wonderful depth and character, and a wine for $13! — 6 days ago
