K&L Notes

Tapiz is one of the most renowned and awarded Argentine wineries, made even more famous by the addition of winemaker Jean Claude Berrouet in 2012, recently-retired from Petrus after 44 vintages at the revered Bordeaux chateau. To celebrate his addition to the team, Tapiz created a new "Alta Collection" line of wines using fruit that comes solely from Tapiz's sustainably-farmed San Pablo vineyard in the Uco Valley. San Pablo is one of the highest altitude vineyards in Mendoza (4,600 feet above sea level). This extreme altitude provides for warm days which impart concentration to the grapes, and cold nights which give natural acidity.

    It's back, with a 95-point rating! A generous and friendly Malbec with great structure and supple fruit. Rich, ripe black plums, mocha and balanced, toasty oak. It has a fair amount of tannin complemented by an equal amount of acid, and juicy red fruit on the finish. An amazing deal!!

    As it did last vintage, the Tapiz Malbec certainly wears its right bank Bordeaux credentials on its sleeve, while still leaving no doubt that we are drinking a generously fruited, rich and ripe Malbec of sunny, high plateau Uco Valley origins. A balanced, agreeably toasty nose leads to dark plum and fig flavors on the palate, with just a bit of Bordelaise inspired tannin structure and roasted coffee bean nuances coming through as well. The overall impression is that of a fruit forward and nicely structured Malbec to enjoy immensely now and over the next several years. Grab some sooner than later, as this was our most popular Malbec last year, and likely to repeat this year as well.
