Val De Salis Malbec Pays d'Oc 2014 Product #30222 (In Stock)
Val De Salis Malbec Pays d'Oc 2014 Val De Salis Malbec Pays d'Oc 2014

Malbec surged to international fame on the strength of the darkly fruited, ripe, and lush examples grown in Argentina’s Mendoza vineyards.  But, before that, it was the basis of one of the most famous wines of late medieval Europe, the intense, earthy, bitingly tannic “black wines” of Cahors in the Southwest of France. The 2012 Val De Salis Malbec from vineyards near the French walled city of  Carcassonne sort of splits the difference in these two styles to deliver a big mouthful of juicy, complex, fruity fun.

You’ll find plenty of New World fruit here, with generous dollops of red plum, raspberry and tangy pie cherry in the aromas and on the palate.  And, you’ll also notice the Old World notes of fresh leather, licorice root, and the notes of lavender, thyme, and black olive the French call garrigue.  On the finish, the New/Old World influence merge to deliver lingering red fruit, licorice, and lavender flavors, bright acidity, and just the right dose of dusty tannin.  What you won’t find is any oak to get in the way of the pure, clean, and refreshing flavors.  Structured enough to sing with burgers, pizza, grilled chicken or most any everyday food, but soft and generous enough to just sip at a party.  And, a steal at this price!

Proemio Malbec Mendoza 2015 Product #31336 (In Stock)
Proemio Malbec Mendoza 2015 Proemio Malbec Mendoza 2015

Yes, 2015 was a great vintage across much of the wine world, but in Argentina, growers had to work hard to capture quality and ripeness in a year of alternating heat and rain.  At Proemio, they nailed it with this fresh and fruit-filled Malbec that went straight to bottle with zero time in oak.  You'll find Mendoza Malbec's signature aromas and flavors of black cherry, red raspberry, baked strawberry, fresh herb and savory spice here with very fine sweetness of fruit and a clear, palate-cleansing, tang on the smooth and supple finish.  A fine and fun party pour and even better with lamb kabobs or grilled veggies.

Clos Siguier Cahors 2013 Product #31338 (In Stock)
Clos Siguier Cahors 2013 Clos Siguier Cahors 2013

A blend of 90% Malbec and 10% Tannat from 60 year-old vines that's fermented in tank and allowed to rest and soften in old casks.  Dark, tangy, and honest with sour cherry fruit, crushed herb, and loads of minerality.  Not Mendoza fruity, but not the impenetrable "black wine" that made Cahors famous in the 1300s. Firm on the finish and perfect for stew or roasts.

This is really good and sophisticated; tasted like $30.

"Dark bright red. Reticent aromas of bitter cherry, blackberry, raspberry, licorice and mocha. Sweet and fine-grained, with harmonious acidity framing and lifting the flavors of blackberry, raspberry, violet and menthol. A serious wine with a restrained sweetness. Finishes with smooth tannins and good breadth."  Vinous (Raynolds) 88 points

Antucura Malbec Mendoza 2015 Antucura Malbec Mendoza 2015

A fun party Malbec that's ready to enjoy with a crowd but has enough class for a nice dinner, too.  Big fruit-filled aromas of dark berry and rich chocolate lead to a ripe, plummy, palate of crushed blackberry, licorice, and a touch of spice from old French oak.  Juicy, clean, and just lightly tanninc on the finish where ripe berry and chocolate flavors linger nicely.  A winner!

Chakana Estate Selection Malbec 2014 Product #31074 (In Stock)
Chakana Estate Selection Malbec 2014 Chakana Estate Selection Malbec 2014

Big 'ol cookout Malbec.

"The wine matured in used 225-liter French oak barrels and cement vats. The nose is ripe and fruit-driven, with aromas of dark cherries and plums plus a subdued minerality and a touch of spices. Most noticeable is the really well-integrated oak (only founder and well-seasoned barrels are used for this wine). The palate is juicy, fresh and has good balance with a somewhat bittersweet finish that is attractive and commercial. This is a great expression of fresh and elegant Malbec from Altamira at a very attractive price point."Wine Advocate 91 points

Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012 Product #31476 (In Stock)
Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012 Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012

The new vintage of our best-selling Malbec ever is another winner!.  Everything about this wine is “super-premium” – the high-end oak, hand harvesting, low yields, even the packaging - except the price!  Made to sell for $60 in the US, a change in distribution created this amazing opportunity to enjoy top-shelf luxury at a very nice, everyday, price.

"I was very impressed with this set of wines produced by a company that owns no vineyards, but sources grapes from selected locations in Mendoza. The 2012 Malbec Grand Reserve sourced from Lujan de Cuyo, aged for one year in French oak barrels, has aromas of incense, spices and black and red cherries. The medium-bodied palate shows a profusion of fine-grained tannins that coat your mouth. It has a classical, serious profile, with restraint and poise. Drink 2015-2019."Wine Advocate 90 points

Proemio Malbec Reserve Mendoza 2013 Product #30352 (In Stock)
Proemio Malbec Reserve Mendoza 2013 Proemio Malbec Reserve Mendoza 2013

An outstanding value from this fairly young Mendoza estate focused on producing balanced wines that are rich enough for big flavors and fresh enough to just drink.  This is a great example of their work, 100% Malbec from Uco Valley harvested ripe, fermented cool, and aged 12 months in French Oak. Tangy cherry, sweet currant, chocolate, herb and spice aromas and flavors shine in this creamy, rich, wine that finishes firm and fine.  A lot of value here in a Malbec with fine clarity and no excess weight.

Catena Malbec Mendoza 2013 Product #30312 (In Stock)
Catena Malbec Mendoza 2013 Catena Malbec Mendoza 2013

Argentina's most reliable Malbec has been delicious for so many years in a row that it's all too easy to pass over.  Don't - it's excellent!

"As I saw with the Cabernet, the 2013 Catena Malbec also feels fresher than the 2012. It is produced with fruit from Valle de Uco and some 20% from the Luján de Cuyo zone that fermented in a mixture of cement and stainless steel, and partly matured in barrels for some 10 months. The nose is full of violets and black cherries, and is quite perfumed. The palate has lively acidity that makes it extremely fresh, long, pleasant and easy to dink, and it cleanses your palate with the mineral-driven finish. A textbook Malbec to buy by the case. Drink or keep. This has to be one of the best vintages of this popular Malbec. The production figures are mind-boggling, as there are over one million bottles of this wine, so it should be quite easy to find."

Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014 Product #31503 (In Stock)
Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014 Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014

From a new line highlighting the unique character of different parts of Argentina's Mendoza Valley.  This is delicious and pure, especially with an hour of air. 

"From a lower part of Uco Valley, featuring cooler nights than Lunlunta as well as more clay in the soil. Bright red-ruby. Initially reduced nose cleared to reveal cassis and cocoa powder aromas lifted by a floral high note. Very ripe and nicely sweet, but with well-integrated acidity and soil salinity giving the wine a light touch. Winemaker Vigil told me he did more carbonic fermentation for Malbec in 2014 as he wanted less extraction, but this is still in a firmly tannic style--not to mention backward for a wine made this way."  Vinous (Tanzer) 91 points

Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2013 Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2013

"This wine has balance and finesse with blueberry, blackberry and some walnut character. Full body, fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 93 points

"The 2013 Malbec is produced with the grapes from an ungrafted vineyard planted in 1928 in Mayor Drummond in Luján de Cuyo at some 980 meters altitude and another one in Perdriel. After hand-sorting the grapes, the wine macerated in 50- and 80-hectoliter tanks for three weeks. It matured in a combination of new, second- and third-use French oak barrels for 12-14 months. It has a lactic nose intermixed with aromas of flowers and fresh fruit. 2013 was a cooler year and the fruit had more malic acid, which might be the explanation for the lactic character I found here. It's also more floral and shows less aromas of plums so often found in warmer vintages. The medium-bodied palate shows good balance and is juicy with sweet tannins that make it very accessible. You feel the hand of a winemaker in this textbook Malbec. It should go an extra mile in bottle with the freshness of the year. 60,000 bottles produced."Wine Advocate 92 points

Not Mendoza, but compelling Malbec in a rich, creamy, powerful style.

"This blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon delivers notes of savory herbs, vanilla, cocoa and dark plum surrounded by a salty brine. The cranberry and blackberry flavors exhibit depth, elegance and purity, with a mesmerizing mouthfeel that leads to a hyper-extended, fruit-filled finish."Wine Enthusiast 93 points

Catena Malbec Alta 2010 Magnum Catena Malbec Alta 2010 Magnum

Drinking great now - 2020+.

"The 2010 Catena Alta Malbec is composed with fruit from Angelica, La Piramide, Nicasia and Adrianna and there was about 30-40% whole-cluster fermentation with a pinch of Viognier and Cabernet Franc. As with many others, the fruit from four different vineyards created different lots from different stages of harvests and different fermentation methods. A pure exercise of blending a selection of available wines from this painstaking working method. It feels riper than the Alta Cabernet, quite dark, with aromas of ripe plums, blackberries and a touch of spices, but with air the nose comes back with a strong violet note. It is medium-bodied, with good acidity, clean and pungent flavors, ending long and supple. Excellent. Drink 2014-2020."Wine Advocate 94 points
