Winemaker Notes

Cruz Andina is a Malbec based blend that represents the unique character of high altitude and old vines from Mendoza. The wine expresses Malbec's exceptional concentration with a soft, supple texture. Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Bonarda are blended for complexity, structure and delicate mouthfeel. The old-vine fruit, Alvaro Espinoza's minimalist approach to winemaking and sensibility for elegant wines were the perfect fit for the style of Malbec we desired to produce.

WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
A big, ripe and pure Malbec with gorgeous berry aromas setting up a lush, yummy palate that pumps forth chewy, delicious blackberry, vanilla and chocolate flavors. Finishes warm and oaky: from a mediocre vintage, it's impressive. From the chilean Huneeus family and top-flight winemaker/consultant Alvaro Espinoza.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Rich, with lots of ripe, spicy blackberry, currant and boysenberry fruit layered with enticing black licorice and vibrant spice notes, followed by a winey finish.
