Wine Style Guide

Light & Fruity

Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.

Smooth & Supple

Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.

Earthy & Spicy

Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.

Big & Bold

Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.

Alcohol By Volume: 14.0%

Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

#74 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2010

Their standard Malbec bottling, Durigutti's Malbec "Clásico" represents what the brothers do best-combine elegance with a certain blue-collar rusticity. While this is in many ways due to the two differing backgrounds the brothers bring to the table, it is also largely due to the fruit. High altitude fruit from La Consulta adds structure, depth, and power, while bright fruit from Vistalba adds brightness and supple texture.

Lush nose laced with black-berry and plum fruit. Soft yet focused on the palate, with additional flavors of strawberry and wild herbs. Medium tannins and balanced acidity. A terrific everyday drinker!

Critical Acclaim

"A lush, toasty style, with lots of cocoa and roasted vanilla up front, followed by dark, well-layered fig, boysenberry and mulled currant fruit flavors. The long finish lets all the fruit hang nicely, with an underlying graphite hint supporting it all. Drink now through 2011."
90 Points

"Fragrant bouquet of Asian spices, floral notes, and black cherry, supple, sweet, some structure."

First, you'll have to like a very sweet red wine to enjoy this offering. If I owned the vineyard, I would figure out a way to make a Port style fortified product using this as part of the base. That said, it has a certain appeal in the right setting. It would go well with a sweet, chocolate dessert.

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.
