Winemaker's Notes:

Our Malbec grapes are selected from our best vineyards located in the best wine-growing region of Mendoza. These terroirs provide a wonderful expression of fruit and variety concentration. This wine has an attractive and intense violet color, with black fruits, berries and raspberries flavors and finish complexity and elegance.

About Zolo:

Fincas Patagonicas, parent winery to Zolo and Tapiz vineyards, is one of the most technologically advanced wineries in Argentina and marries Argentina's best vineyards with winemaking expertise. Fincas Patagonicas vineyards are located in the Valle de Uco and Agrelo regions, province of Mendoza. Mt. Plata (6100 meters) and Tupungato volcano (6800 meters), overlook the state-of-the-art Fincas Patagónicas Winery providing a magnificent scenery.

The signature wine of Fincas Patagónicas is Malbec. One of the five Bordeaux blending grapes, Malbec has flourished in Argentina since the middle 1800s, producing intense wines of great value. Fincas Patagónicas’s Tapiz Malbec was recognized as the "Best overall Malbec" by

in its annual buying guide for 2000 and the Malbec 2002 was listed as Best Value by Wine Spectator in 2004 .
