Winemaker Notes

DiamAndes de Uco Malbec is a blend of single varietal Malbec for which Argentina's vineyards are famous, and offers all the fullness, richness and intensity of fruit characteristic of Malbec. The attack is clean and silky, the palate develops lovely aromas of dark fruit, with notes of chocolate and pepper, and a pleasant smokiness. A very balanced wine, full-bodied and fruity with a silky texture and a delightful finish.

DiamAndes de Uco Malbec is the perfect pairing for poultry or grilled meat, in the style of the Argentinean "Asados"!

Blend: 90% Malbec, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 3% Syrah, and 2% PVerdot

RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Bodega Diamandes' 2010 Diamandes de Uco Malbec contains small amounts of Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, and Petit Verdot in its blend. It offers up a pleasing perfume of spice box, underbrush, violets, and black cherry. This sets the stage for a savory, ripe, well-balanced Malbec that is a good value meant for drinking over the next 4-5 years.

Argentina

View all wine

With vineyards tretching along the eastern side of the Andes Mountains from Patagonia in the south to Salta in the north, Argentina is one of the world’s largest and most dynamic wine producing countries—and most important in South America.

Since the late 20th century vineyard investments, improved winery technology and a commitment to innovation have all contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains is used heavily to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

Argentina’s famous Mendoza region, responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, with Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley most noteworthy. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white.

The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.

Known for its big, bold flavors and supple texture, Malbec is most famous for its runaway success in Argentina. However, the variety actually originates in Bordeaux, where it historically contributed color and tannin to blends. After being nearly wiped out by a devastating frost in 1956, it was never significantly replanted, although it continued to flourish under the name Côt in nearby Cahors. A French agronomist who saw great potential for the variety in Mendoza’s hot, high-altitude landscape, brought Malbec to Argentina in 1868. But it did not gain its current reputation as the country's national grape until a surge in popularity in the late 20th century.

In the Glass

Malbec typically expresses deep flavors of blackberry, plum and licorice, appropriately backed by aromas of freshly turned earth and dense, chewy tannins. In warmer, New World regions, such as Mendoza, Malbec will be intensely ripe, and full of fruit and spice. From its homeland in Cahors, its rusticity shines; dusty notes and a beguiling bouquet of violets balance rich, black fruit.

Perfect Parings

Malbec’s rustic character begs for flavorful dishes, like spicy grilled sausages or the classic cassoulet of France’s Southwest. South American iterations are best enjoyed as they would be in Argentina: with a thick, juicy steak.

Sommelier Secret

If you’re trying to please a crowd, Malbec is generally a safe bet. With its combination of bold flavors and soft tannins, it will appeal to basically anyone who enjoys red wine. Malbec also wins bonus points for affordability, as even the most inexpensive examples are often quite good.
