Winemaker's Notes

Pizzella Family Vineyard Malbec is a beautiful red/purple color with aromas of black cherries, dark fruits, dark chocolate and baker's spice. On the palate, the wine shows dense dark berry and plum flavors along with hints of sandalwood and spice, and even a hint of violets in the finish.

This is a full-bodied and well-structured wine that is incredibly full of life and born to be enjoyed with food and friends. Goes great with everything from hamburgers and chicken to pizza and mild cheeses. An awesome value to boot.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2010 Malbec Pizzella Family Vineyard also spent 14 months in 25% new French oak. Earthy minerals, spice box, tobacco, lavender, and black cherry compose the nose of this elegant, nicely proportioned, lengthy red that also offers outstanding value. It will provide considerable pleasure over the next 5-6 years."

Our first encounter with many of these growers was at a posta del vinatero, or tavern of the grape grower. Here they drank wine and spoke...

Learn About Argentina

(ahr-jen-TEE-nah) Now fifth in the world for wine production, Argentina is catching up in the quality wine sector. A long time wine producer, Argentina used to make wine in order to drink it, not export it. And so the wines produced were quaffable and rustic and made for the local's everyday dinner. Yet it's hard not to get caught up in the wine market of the world and some...
