Critical Acclaim

ST88 Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar Mar/Apr 2013

"Bright medium red. Sexy aromas of raspberry, mocha, roast coffee and game. Broad, spicy and light on its feet, with modest flesh to the flavors of raspberry, currant and spices. Good ripe acidity and fairly fine tannins nicely frame the wine’s lingering sweet fruit." (88 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.
