Winemaker Notes

Intense and dark violet color with a surprising sheen. Aromas of red fruits, strawberries and some cherries. subtle notes of flowers like violets and lilacs. also some aromas of vanilla and delicate toasted aromas brought by its passage through oak. In the mouth it is a complex wine with personality, good structure and an extremely pleasant ending.

James Suckling
What a fantastic nose to this polished and intense wine. Wet earth, blackberries, licorice and walnut shell on the nose. Full body, ultra-fine tannins and a fabulous finish. This is one of the best top class malbecs. So wonderful to drink now but better in 2019.

Wine Enthusiast
Dark, tarry chocolate and blackberry aromas lead to a full-bodied and fresh palate in this wine. Its toasty black-fruit flavors are nicely spiced, finishing with peppery and toasty notes of coconut and chocolate. Drink through 2028.

Pulenta Estate, South America
Pulenta Estate Pulenta Estate Winery Image

The Pulenta family has been a prominent and respected force in Argentine viticulture for three generations. Sons of well-known winegrower Antonio Pulenta, and descendants of Italian immigrants, Eduardo and Hugo Pulenta founded Pulenta Estate in 2002. The vineyards are estate-owned and farmed for high quality and limited yields. Their extensive holdings in the Agrelo area of Lujan de Cuyo have allowed them to create a broad portfolio that includes sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, chardonnay and malbec rose; merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and cabernet sauvignon in several tiers and even a late harvest red blend.

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.
