Las Compuertas Single Vineyard Malbec 2011

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blackberries, black plums, oak, earth, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, vegetables, peppercorn, tobacco, herbs, bell pepper and wet leaves.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry and fruity on the palate with blackberries, black currants, sweet cherries, wood, licorice, spices, dark chocolates, vanilla, coffee, vegetable, earth, leather, tobacco leaf and peppercorn.

Long finish with firm tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great surprise. This 8 year old Malbec is drinking very nicely now. Well balanced and enjoyable by itself or with food.

This Single Vineyard is showing nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.

Needs 4 hours in a decanter to open up properly and show tannins and all of the complexity.

This was a good vintage in Mendoza and it is showing. Very easy to drink so watch out 😁

Grapes are grown at 3,500 feet elevation, and aged for 18 months in French oak barrels.

15% alcohol by volume.

92 points.

$50.

Ultra Las Rocas Malbec 2016

This is a great find. Definitely solid QPR. Some cocoa and flowers on the nose. Fruity and silky on the palate. Juicy red fruit and berry flavor. This is a Malbec must-try! — a day ago

Per Se

La Craie Gualtallary Malbec Cabernet Franc 2013

Tantalizing blend of cab franc and Malbec, pure and beautifully extracted. Animale from the Malbec perfectly framed by the supple CF. Hold 2-3 more years and give this beast a long decant. Different. — 12 days ago

For the price, this is great. Gotta love a walkable restaurant with a weekly changing menu and a small, inexpensive, drinkable wine list. The world’s greatest neighbors in this pic- they’ve become some of my best friends- are moving across the world soon and I’m gonna miss our wine dinners (and everything else too.) — 20 days ago

Syrah 2016

A cor está entre o rubi e o camurça, aparenta estar maduro. Não é muito encorpado. É um bom vinho, gosto macio, sente-se um pouco o carvalho no fundo. Eu não senti forte o álcool, mas minha esposa achou forte, que aliás, não gostou. — 7 days ago

Rebon Vineyard Bramare Mendoza Malbec 2013

The wines are the result of a shared passion of three winemakers: Paul Hobbs & Argentine parters Andrea Marchiori & Luis Barraud. Dark Ruby with aromas of berry fruits and complex spice. On the palate concentrated flavors of cherry and raspberry with toasty notes and pepper spice. Good balance fine tannins, lingering ending with fruit and sweet herb character. Nice, small production. — 12 days ago

Finca Decero

Remolinos Vineyard Malbec 2016

Very nicely realized Malbec. Black cherry and raspberry notes up front with a hint of pine. Tannins fill in pleasantly through the middle and finish. Very nicely balanced, not too sweet with a clean finish. I can’t remember having a better Malbec. Could still sit a while.

Grand Reserve Malbec 2016

Big, bold, beefy and complex. Baked blackberries and woodsy vibes. This wine begs you to sit down and enjoy on its own, or perhaps with a mild hard cheese like Comte. My fave Malbec thus far, this new-world style wine knocks you off your feet in a good way. Fabulous bang for minimal buck. Stands up so you can lie down and take it in. Yep, this is a date night panty-dropper for ladies that go for a big boy. — 18 days ago
