WW 94
Wilfred Wong of
Sometimes, I believe that I bleed Malbec, if fact so much so that I have often feel the powers of this varietal live in my wineglass. The 2011 Anko Flor de Cardon is simply delicious and ready for the taking. Invite a few pals over to the house and grill a well marbled rib-eye of beef. Get the grass-fed kind, so that you can eat it pink in the middle, then pour good size glass of this and enjoy! Medium to deep ruby, magenta color; red currant aroma, precise and fine, excellent depth; medium bodied, pert on the palate; dry, nice acidity, well balanced; serious, red currant flavors, youthful; medium finish, smooth and deliciously supple aftertaste. (Tasted: June 17, 2015, San Francisco, CA)

Wine Enthusiast
While the bouquet on this dark-hued Malbec is inky, jammy and a bit stalky smelling, there’s ample berry and leather aromas to keep the nose going in the right direction. This is full and jammy on the palate, with blueberry, clove and minty flavors leading to a finish with chocolate and baking spice flavors.

Anko, South America
Anko  Winery Image
Anko means "high water" in the native language of Salta, located in the northwest corner of Argentina. Wine Enthusiast quoted Anko winemaker Jeff Mausbach as follows: "Salta is a land of extremes—extreme beauty, extreme altitude, extreme sunlight. These extremes make for a singular expression of Malbec—powerful, structured wines with a savory minerality that is very different from other regions in Argentina." In this rugged, mountainous desert, an “Anko,” or high altitude oasis, was treasured as a precious sanctuary, protection from the harsh elements of nature. Our estate vineyards in Estancia Los Cardones, named for the area's majestic cacti which can grow as tall as 30 feet, are indeed an oasis amid the surrounding jagged landscape. The winemakers and co-owners are Jeff Mausbach and Alejandro "Colo" Sejanovich; the other co-owners are the Saavedra Azcona family.

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
