2019 Altosur Malbec (Sophenia, Finca)

Altosur, Malbec, Tupungato, Mendoza, Aregentina, 2019

Soft and full with tea, dark chocolate, leather, berries

At heights of close to 4,000 feet a vine produces some serious fruit. This wine is so much more than a $9.99er. Harvested at dawn in the cool morning hours, this Malbec has blackberry and blueberry fruit playing with soft tannin, a kiss of oak and oozing with pleasure. Unlike most Malbecs in this price range, it’s grown, produced and bottled entirely by a small family winery!

Try With:

This is drinking wine pure and simple. If you need a solid red to serve with dinner you found it. Originally made to go with simple grilled steak and potatoes.

2019 Malbec "Alhambra" (Abril, Finca)

Finca Abril, Malbec "Alhambra", Mendoza, Argentina 2019

100% Malbec

PLUSH, VELVETY, SUPERCHARGED JUICY GOODNESS

The Uco Valley is a prized district of Argentina's vast Mendoza region, where century old vineyards are being revitalized to make some of the country's most exciting wines. The cooler climate and 4,000 feet elevations make wines like this one, that bring together ruby-fruited richness with violety freshness. Gustavo and Maria Laura's 23 hectare organic operation here, now in its 25th year in operation, is mosquito sized compared to the million bottle behemoth's that dominate Argentina's industry, but the wines more than hold their own against their mass-produced neighbors.

Serving Suggestion: A charcuterie passed among friends, loarded loaded with aged sheep's milk cheeses (like Manchego), Prosciutto and smoky Chorizo. Slow roasted beef brisket.

2018 Malbec "I" (Pulenta)

Pulenta Estate, Malbec "I", Alto Agrelo, Mendoza, Argentina 2018

100% Malbec

BLACKBERRY & PLUM, VIOLET, SUBTLE SMOKY MINERAL

This cuvée's title (simply the roman numeral "I" ) identifies the Malbec grape, not surprisingly, as the Pulenta family's first priority. Eschewing the ultra-concentrated and monstrously fruity style of many contemporary Argentine Malbecs, they've focused on the balance which is possible between elegance and power. A delicate smoky finesse derived from aging in large French oak barrels supplements and supports the varietal's trademark flavors of black fruit and chocolate. The Pulenta family, descendants of Italian immigrants, represent three generations of viticulture in Argentina.

Serving Suggestion: Grilled flank steak with a cilantro and parsley chimichurri. Potato empanada with ground beef, cilantro, and garlic.

2019 Malbec Reserve (Sophenia, Finca)

Finca Sophenia, Reserve Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina 2019

100% Malbec

PLUM, LINGONBERRY, SMOKY OAK & SPICES

This mid-sized winery keeps coming through with the good stuff. We're often wary of carrying too many wines from one winery, but Sophenia continues to astound us while most other wineries cannot compete at the same price. This Malbec is lovely and modern, with noticeable oak aging, but perfectly balanced and showing great subtlety for its price. A real crowd pleaser!

Serving Suggestions: Steak man! That's what they do in Argentina. Steak, steak, steak! With a side of steak.
