Winemaker Notes

Intense pruplish red color. Flavors and aromas reminiscent of ripe red fruits, dried plums, figs, fruits compote and jams. Has a nose with very subtle floral and menthol notes. Its passage through oak provides notes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Presence of sweet and ripe tannins. A specimen with an elegant personality, intense in flavor and an impeccable balance.

Wine Spectator
Luscious and well-spiced, with concentrated raspberry and wild cherry flavors backed by vibrant acidity. Tobacco leaf accents on the savory finish.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

I found the 2015 Black Tears Malbec to be very classical and proportioned, floral, aromatic and fresh. It comes from the higher-altitude vineyards in San Pablo where the soils are shallow and have lots of stones. It matured in new and second use French oak barrels for 18 months (down from 24 in the previous vintage) and has integrated oak. It has ripe fruit without excess and is neatly balanced by very good acidity. It's powerful and elegant, nicely textured. It feels a little riper after a long time in the glass.

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.
