Winemaker Notes

The color and flavors in this wine remind you of fresh, sweet purple plums – velvety layers of flavor are full and lasting-typical of an Argentine Malbec.

Any red meat, especially cooked outdoors, is a perfect partner.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 88
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2010 Premium Malbec undergoes 10% bleeding of vats, with malo in tank and then aged in barrel for between eight and nine months in second and third fill oak. It has a light bouquet of leafy black fruit that demands coaxing from the glass. It is very tight at the moment, reluctantly offering hints of forest floor and cedar with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy, succulent tannins. It has crisp acidity and an appealing fleshy texture, although the finish is rather conservative and does not really -let go.-

Out of this place has evolved a people, a culture and a passion for wine. From that people, a select few have joined to form a team of specialists who are defined by our shared values and commitment to the truth and beauty that can only be found in our estate-level winemaking process. From our shared vision a respect for traditional winemaking techniques and appreciation for contemporary flavors have fused. Finally, Piattelli must be understood to be a story with a beautiful history, a bright future and a strong legacy.

So what is the essence of Piattelli Vineyards? Perhaps most keenly it can be described as the quite, heartfelt invitation we extend to each and every wine consumer to come and share in the various dimensions of our identity by enjoying the beautiful experience of drinking our wines, which are easy to drink yet delightfully expressive.

Napa Valley

View all wine

One of the world's most highly regarded regions for wine production and tourism, the Napa Valley is the AVA that brought worldwide recognition to California winemaking. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard lands were scooped up and vines were planted throughout the county. A number of wineries emerged, from large conglomerates to small boutiques to cult classics. Cabernet Sauvignon is definitely the grape of choice here, with many winemakers also focusing on Bordeaux blends. Whites are usually Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Within the Napa Valley lie many smaller sub-AVAs that lend even more character specifics to the wines. Furthest south is Carneros, followed by Yountville, Oakville & Rutherford. Above those two are St.-Helena and the valley's newest AVA, Calistoga. These areas are situated on the valley floor and are known for creating rich, smooth Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Chardonnay. There are a few mountain regions as well, nestled on the slopes overlooking the valley AVAs. Those include Howell Mountain, Stags Leap District, and Mt. Veeder. Wines from the mountain regions are often more structured and firm, benefiting from more time in the bottle to evolve and soften.
