Val De Salis Malbec Pays D'oc 2012 Product #28038 (In Stock)
Val De Salis Malbec Pays D'oc 2012 Val De Salis Malbec Pays D'oc 2012

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!

Finca Sophenia Altosur Malbec 2013 Product #28295 (In Stock)

What a winner of a Malbec value! Rich, lush, aromas and flavors of raspberry, plum and black cherry are all enrobed in dark chocolate with dashes of sweet spice.  Rich and velvety, and palate-coating in the middle before a mineral note emerges towards the back and fresh fruit and cocoa flavors linger nicely.  Structured enough for steak but soft enough to just sip, too.

Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013 Product #28150 (In Stock)
Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013 Los Medanos Malbec Mendoza 2013

Here's a fun, classy, Malbec made entirely from organically grown grapes in the high and dry sunshine of Mendoza.  Aromas of dark black fruit - cherry, currant, raspberry - lead to richly textured flavors of dark fruit, cedar, vanilla and baking spice.  Mouthfilling, but not heavy, it finishes with generous notes of creamy cherry, cedar and spice.  Terrific value and great with burgers or anything roasted or off the grill.

Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011 Product #27674 (In Stock)
Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011 Bodega Benegas Malbec Juan Benegas 2011

This little gem WAY over delivers for its modest price.  Winegrower/maker Federico Benegas Lynch is a master of getting perfectly ripe fruit from his old-vine vineyards and, with help from master consultant Michel Rolland, turning out honest wines of great depth and character.  Here you'll find a fun, fruity, wine with earthy blackberry, blueberry, spice and coffee aromas and flavors.  An iron ore minerality adds complexity and the round tannins and bright acids just the right support.  It's fruitier and not quite as complex as Frederico's Estate Malbec, but just perfect for parties or pairing with everyday meals.

O Fournier Urban Uco Malbec 2012 Product #27601 (In Stock)
O Fournier Urban Uco Malbec 2012 O Fournier Urban Uco Malbec 2012

A savory expression of Malbec - beefy and rich but with bright acids.

"The 2012 Urban Uco Malbec spent three months in oak barrels. The bouquet is well-defined with blackberry, boysenberry, touches of dark chocolate and anise. The palate offers chunky black fruit on the entry. It is fresh, a little rough round the edges, but true to what an unadulterated Malbec should be. For this price: unbeatable."Wine Advocate 90 points

Bodega Benegas Malbec Estate 2010 Product #26475 (In Stock)
Bodega Benegas Malbec Estate 2010 Bodega Benegas Malbec Estate 2010

Here's what Mendoza Malbec is all about. From organic vineyards and older vines, this opens with a pure perfume of plum and raspberry fruit with floral and spice accents.  Round and complexly textured and flavored in the mouth, the fruit stays in the front with accents of stone, coffee, and cocoa.  Long and lingering finish over the sweet, ripe, tannins.  Excellent value.

Ch Haut Monplaisir Cahors 2011 Product #28178 (In Stock)
Ch Haut Monplaisir Cahors 2011 Ch Haut Monplaisir Cahors 2011

A classic expression of Malbec from Southwestern France, home of the ancient "black wine of Cahors."  For rich food now or to cellar for another few years.

"This is a powerhouse of ripe fruits, strong tannins and dark acidity. It burst out of the glass with its bold, firm flavors and solid structure. It is already balanced, the fruit complementing the dense texture. But it will certainly develop more and age very well."Wine Enthusiast 90 points

Argentina's benchmark Malbec house never tires of delivering excellent wines.  If you haven't had this in a while, now's the time.

Bodegas Monteviejo Lindaflor Petite Fleur 2010 Product #28201 (In Stock)
Bodegas Monteviejo Lindaflor Petite Fleur 2010 Bodegas Monteviejo Lindaflor Petite Fleur 2010

A serious, dark, Malbec blend with notes of chocolate and superb concentration.  Needs air and big meant now.  This is great value.

"The 2010 Petite Fleur is a blend of 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah and 10% Merlot cropped at nine tons per acre. It has a ripe bouquet of creme de cassis, marmalade and blood orange that could be overbearing, but it is undeniably nicely controlled. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. It has superb weight of fruit, while the finish is powerful yet elegant, with Asian spices, dark cherry and dried orange peel lingering on the aftertaste. Drink 2013-2018."Wine Advocate 90 points

Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2011 Product #28050 (In Stock)
Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2011 Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2011

A long-time favorite Malbec returns.  Lush, rich, and creamy but with fine definition and good lift to the dark fruit, chocolate, and spice aromas and flavors.

"Bright medium ruby. Musky cassis, plum and dark chocolate on the nose, lifted by minty and mineral nuances. Fine-grained and firm in the mouth, with a restrained sweetness to its black raspberry and smoky mineral flavors; conveys an impression of strong extract. Nicely integrated acidity extends the finish, which features chewy, ripe tannins and excellent lift."International Wine Cellar 91(+?) points

Angulo Innocenti Unisono La Consulta 2010 Product #27494 (In Stock)
Angulo Innocenti Unisono La Consulta 2010 Angulo Innocenti Unisono La Consulta 2010

A "WOW" wine, one that makes an immediate impression with its rich, luscious, chocolate-covered fruit and then keeps pumping out blackberry, mocha and spice notes until the bottle's all gone.  Nothing subtle here - big flavors and textures for big food on the grill.

"The 2010 Unisono is a blend of 67% Malbec, 26% Cabernet Sauvignon and 7% Cabernet Franc from La Consulta in the Finca Piedras Blancas vineyard in the Uco Valley. Approximately two-thirds is raised in French oak for 13 months. It has an impressive bouquet, rich and generous with scents of dark plum, boysenberry, fresh dates and a smear of dark chocolate. The aromatics are well-defined and open nicely over the course of one hour. The palate is full-bodied with a supple, luscious entry. There are layers of sweet dark plum, mocha and licorice fruit with just a touch of alcoholic burn at the back of the throat. It does have a gloriously seductive, velvety texture and the rounded cashmere finish is a delight. This is a well-crafted, opulent Malbec blend that offers immediate drinking."Wine Advocate 90 points

"This dark, suave red mixes creamy cassis and dark blackberry coulis notes with layers of mocha, spice and savory cured olive. Compact, with fine tannins and juicy acidity pushing along the fruit-filled finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Drink now through 2015."Wine Spectator 92 points
