VN91 Vinous Mar 2016

"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. I’d give it 18 months in the cellar." (91 pts.)

Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.
