Zuccardi Q Malbec 2010
Malbec from Argentina, South America
A wine of great personality, with a deep violet color and notes of dark plum, figs and berries.
Decanter - "The Vineyard Zuccardi is one of the best known South American wineries. This shows serious concentration on the nose with creamy, opulent cherry and dark berry fruits. More creamy, oakinfluenced, ripe fruit flavours follow on the palate."
The Wine Advocate - "The 2010 Q Malbec (100%) was aged in French oak for 12 months. Inviting scents of cedar, Asian spices, lavender, and black cherry lead to a plush, dense, layered, pleasure-bent Malbec that will provide enjoyment over the next 6-8 years. It is an outstanding value. "
Wine & Spirits - "Sweet and full-bodied, this forms a pool of dark berry flavor in the mouth, the tannins soft on the tongue. Those tannins have some astringency, but rather than drying the palate, they provide the structure to match an oxtail stew."

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.
