100% Malbec from old vineyard estates located in San Jose, El Peral, Gualtallary and Tupungato. Hand-harvested and fermented with native yeasts in cement pools prior to aging in cement tank.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
JS 91
James Suckling
Attractive violets and blueberries on the nose with a lift of herb. A soft and supple malbec with medium body and a very smooth texture.
D 91

Pretty, floral nose with hints of black fruit, dried herb and pepper; palate is laced with a bright acidity and supple tannins.

Uco Valley Wine

Mendoza, Argentina

View all products

With a winning combination of cool weather, high elevation and well-draining alluvial soils, it is no surprise that Mendoza’s Uco Valley is one of the most exciting up-and-coming wine regions in Argentina. Healthy, easy-to-manage vines produce low yields of high-quality fruit, which in turn create flavorful, full-bodied wines with generous acidity.

This is the source of some of the best Malbec in Mendoza, which can range from value-priced to ultra-premium. Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Chardonnay also perform well here.

Celebrated for its bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec has enjoyed runaway success in Argentina since the late 20th century. The grape originated in Bordeaux, France, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. A French agronomist, who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. Somm Secret—If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet with its combination of dense fruit and soft tannins.
