Winemaker Notes

The soils of Lujan de Cuyo are composed predominantly of loose sand over clay and rock which provide excellent free-draining qualities allowing our vines to be stressed. With natural irrigation from the pure water source of the snow melt of the Andes Mountains, our vines produce premium red wines with rich color, full body and true varietal character.

This handcrafted Malbec is a burst of dark cherry and blackberry with a rich, plush finish.

Malbec is a great match with any type of hard cheese such as Manchego, or barbequed meat dish with cracked black pepper.

Tasting Panel

Deep ruby color; lush and tangy with a streamlined texture and penetrating notes of plum, black raspberry, and cassis. Dense and spicy with a slightly warming effect on the finish, it’s like biting into a ripe plum. At this price, it’s an absolute steal.

Don Rodolfo Winery Image
Argentina's major wine regions are located in the western part of the country and are seated along the base of the Andes Mountains. With one of the widest diurnal temperature variations in the world, Argentina's summers can hit as high as 104ºF and nights cooling off to 50ºF. This arid desert-like climate relies on the pollution-free water from the melted glaciers in the Andes in order to naturally irrigate each vineyard. Argentina also has some of the highest altitudes vineyards in the world, with an average altitude of 3,000 feet high. These extreme and strenuous geographic characteristics allow Argentina's vines to really struggle and produce lower yields with higher quality and more concentrated wines.best — of Argentina's wines. Don Rodolfo is one such winery.

DR Art of the Andes wines are certified in both GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) by the internationally respected DNV-GL Corporation. A portion of every bottle of Don Rodolfo sold is donated to support a socio-economically diverse group of aspiring Argentinean artists. With this money we are able to cover costs of their art supplies, studio time, and continual education via special workshops, artist lectures and participation in open studios.

Mendoza Wine

Argentina

View all products

By far the largest and best-known winemaking province in Argentina, Mendoza is responsible for over 70% of the country’s enological output. Set in the eastern foothills of the Andes Mountains, the climate is dry and continental, presenting relatively few challenges for viticulturists during the growing season. Mendoza, divided into several distinctive sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley, is the source of some of the country’s finest wines.

For many wine lovers, Mendoza is practically synonymous with Malbec. Originally a Bordelaise variety brought to Argentina by the French in the mid-1800s, here it found success and renown that it never knew in its homeland where a finicky climate gives mixed results. Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot and Pinot Noir are all widely planted here as well (and sometimes even blended with each other or Malbec). Mendoza's main white varieties include Chardonnay, Torrontés, Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon.

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.
