Valle De Uco, Mendoza

Finca La Celia

Supremo Uco Valley Malbec Blend

An awesome ensamble. The character of the Malbec, the softness of the Merlot, the astringency of the PV and the roundness of the Tannat, all of them are present on this wonderful red. Very elegant yet powerful. Lots of decanting is needed (over an hour and a half) for it to fully express. A wine not for the amateur. — 2 days ago

Valle de Uco Malbec 2013

I love that there’s already a movement in Argentina to dial back over-the-top Malbec. Remember Australian Shiraz?
This 2013 from Sebastien Zuccardi pays homage to his grandfather José. Fermented in concrete vats and then aged in large, neutral oak foudres. The fruit is noticeably black, rich and ripe, yet there’s a measured amount of restraint, and it’s that mid-weight approach that allows for a plethora of floral and mineral notes to shine. Extraordinary for the $ (just under $40).

I had the Concreta bottling, very impressive; Malbec for the northern Rhône drinker.

@David T Great to hear. I would love to an intensive tasting trip like that. And even if you’re not fed up with the high prices, who doesn’t love wines that over deliver.

@Saman Hosseini Interesting. Need to try that then.

Zuccardi Q Malbec 2015

Blueberry, blackberry, mocha, caramel, baking spice. Full bodied with 14% alcohol but soft tannins are quite food friendly. Fermented in cement, oak aged but the oak doesn’t overwhelm the fruit. Long finish. Very good. — 5 days ago

Q Cabernet Sauvignon Tupungato and La Consulta 2014

I was pleased with this. There’s a lot of cassis riding on a bed of blackberries, with some fresh raspberries and blueberries. Some leather, wood, and a little graphite, too. The tannins are low to moderate, but there’s enough acidity to balance the fruit. A good value, too. — 17 days ago
