Santa Julia Malbec Plus 2017 Product #33132 (In Stock)
Santa Julia Malbec Plus 2017 Santa Julia Malbec Plus 2017

Here's an absolutely SCREAMING house/party red wine deal in the form of ripe and fruit-filled Mendoza Malbec.  José Zuccardi, director of Mendoza's top-notch Familia Zuccardi estate, created this estate in 1994 and named it in honor of his only daughter, Julia.  From the beginning, it's been a leading force in organic and sustainable grape growing for Mendoza, and a portion of each year's profits are invested locally to support sustainability and community initiatives.

Which is all just a bonus - a "Plus" if you will - to just how good this tastes.  It's 100% Mendoza Malbec fermented cool and with 30% aged in used French oak barriques.  At 13.5% alcohol, it's got a nicely plump feel without going overboard to heavy. There's a generous serving of ripe red currant and cherry fruit on the nose and palate with pretty spice shadings and a fine-grained, smooth, finish.  An easy-drinking value with great mouthfeel and a clean, easy, finish you can take home for a song.  Which is a big "Plus" indeed!

Santa Julia Reserva Malbec Mountain Blend Uco Valley 2016 Product #32602 (In Stock)

Malbec/Cab Franc?  Yup - delicious!

"A new red blend first produced in 2015 and sold in the US as Mountain Blend, the 2016 Reserva Malbec Cabernet Franc was also produced with fruit from the Valle de Uco, as the whole Reserva line is now. This Reserva line ferments in stainless steel with indigenous yeasts and matures in a combination of stainless steel and used oak barrels. I think the combination of Malbec with some 30% Cabernet Franc is superb, and the two grapes complement each other very nicely, both in terms of aromas as well as texture/tannins, and this is a very good example of it. This has bright fruit, a fresh palate and a vibrant finish. This is really pleasant. Great value, and a superb example of why this blend is gaining traction in Argentina."Wine Advocate 90 points
