Winemaker Notes

A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports an alluring nose of toasty oak, mineral, licorice, lavender, exotic spices, and assorted black fruits. Dense, rich, and voluptuous on the palate, this is a full-bodied beauty. Pairing: Pairs well with grilled or roasted meats like beef or lamb, quail stuffed with sausage, or any other great meat combo you can dream up.

James Suckling

The intense but more importantly, ethereally-fresh fruit takes your breath away. A kaleidoscope of freshly-picked blackcurrants, brambleberries, boysenberries and mulberries. Though this a late release, it tastes like they were picked yesterday. Then there's pure ink, iodine, licorice and dark plums. Full body, seamless tannins, unmitigated fruit and an incredibly long finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2013 Susana Balbo Nosotros Single Vineyard Nomade is taking Malbec to a new level. TASTING NOTES: This wine is packed with tremendous flavors and resolute to superb style. Its aromas and flavors of penetrating black fruits accented with oak should pair superbly with grilled tri-tip top with sweet peppers. (Tasted: September 9, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

With a profile closer to the wines from the 1990s, the 2013 Nosotros Single Vineyard Nómade Malbec is concentrated and powerful and needs time in bottle. Even if they lowered the oak, it's still very oaky, with abundant smoke and spice aromas and a little more in the palate, where there were abundant, grainy, slightly astringent tannin and oak-related flavors. In 2013, it's produced with the grapes from the same vineyard as the Expresivo in Gualtallary. But this is a Gualtallary from a different era; the more recent wines feel a lot fresher and with the oak better integrated. For fans of oaky Malbec. 14,000 bottles were filled in October 2014.

Susana became the first female enologist in Argentina after graduating with honors from Don Bosco University in Mendoza in 1981. Due to the male-dominated industry in Mendoza, her first job took her north to Salta where she changed Argentine wine history with her first vintage of premium Torrontés. Susana continually seeks innovative ways to enhance her winemaking, from experimenting with barrel volumes (160L through 6,500L) to testing wild vs cultured yeasts. For premium wine production, Susana chooses concrete eggs for fermenting vessels. The egg's porous concrete breathes like oak yet allows the wine to develop as if it were made in stainless steel. The resulting wine has a pure expression of fruit with a richer, more complex mouthfeel. In 2011 and 2012, Susana's son Jose and daughter Ana joined the winery to help build SBW to where it is today. Jose helps Susana as the winery's head of R&D alongside his role as Exportation Manager. Ana is SBW's Marketing Manager as well as General Manager of the winery restaurant Osadía de Crear. Susana continuously seeks uncharted territory in the wine world to see what limits can be tested. Most recently, Susana crafted Argentina's first Barrel Fermented Torrontes. It's a wine that is not only the first of its kind, but harvested from a previously unproven terroir for Torrontés in the Uco Valley. The Wine Advocate's Luis Gutierrez calls it one of the "10 Argentine Wines to Drink Before You Die".

Most distinguished and celebrated from Argentina’s Mendoza, Malbec has seen runaway success since the early 2000s. Mendoza’s agreeable, continental climate with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters allows the perfect conditions for growing outstanding Malbec. This grape is easy to like for its lusty, deep flavors and aromas of blackberry, plum, red cherry, autumn spice and tilled earth. It’s easy to find delicious, fruit-driven, affordable everyday examples and in prices beyond, quite exceptional ones with dense, supple textures that make them capable of aging.
