The 2016 is special. Great length on the palate with an extra extended finish. Needs a big huge ribeye to balance off this massive black fruit mouth feel.

Named after Pepe (José) Zuccardi, who runs winery alongside his son Sebastián, 10% Cab Sauv added, deep Ruby with aromas of dark red fruits, baking spice and dried floral notes. On the palate flavors of blueberry and blackberry with licorice, herb pepper and oak. Fine grainy drying tannins, lively acidity, long finish ending with fruit and mineral spice. Nice!

A blend of 90% Malbec 10% Cab Sauv, oak aged, Ruby with aromas of pronounced berry fruits and floral spice nose. On the palate flavors of black cherry, currants and blackberry fruit with herb, cacao, cedar and pepper spice. Firm soft tannins, well balanced, good acidity, long finish ending with fruit, oak & spice. Nice!

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).

Good Malbec, but not extraordinary. Spicy finish that’s a little too strong for me. Deep bitter cherry to start, followed by heavy pepper.

Good Malbec…burnt cherries, pepper, tannins on the back tongue

Paired this with some sick ribeyes on the big green egg. Was expecting this wine to be bigger, but that’s ok. The tartness cut through the fatty chunks of the ribeye. Neon purple on the rim. Long finish.

Klar och ren frukt. Mest betong och stora, stora ekliggare i vinframställningen. Mörka bär, klyvd sten, dova blommor, kaffe, lagerblad.
