The 2005 Malbec Argentino is a blend of the Nicasia and Adrianna Vineyards. As is often the case, the blend is better (although not by much) than either of the individual components. It offers greater complexity both aromatically and on the palate, opulence, great fruit expression, and superb aging potential. Drink this beautifully rendered wine from 2015 to 2035. (JM) 97+
This blend from the Nicasia and Adrianna vineyards is the best Malbec on the market today. There's raisin, mineral, licorice, blackberry and more. The mouth is like a Mack truck on ice skates, meaning it's both huge and elegant. And the mile-long finish of coffee, mocha and molten black fruit is awesome. (MS)
Ambitious, with lots of muscular, very toasty fig, blueberry, black currant and boysenberry flavors wound together by bittersweet cocoa and fruitcake notes. The long, powerful finish will need some time to stretch out fully. (JM)
(made from the best 12 barrels from a high-altitude planting of very old vines) Saturated medium ruby. Knockout nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. Projects an uncanny combination of density and sweetness on the one hand and penetration on the other, with gripping, lightly saline flavors of dark berries, tobacco, spices and minerals. A wonderfully tactile wine with substantial broad tannins and a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet black and blue fruits. (ST)
A blend of grapes from Gualtallary and Altamira in the Uco Valley, this malbec is sweet with caramelized aromas and deep flavors of fig and black cherry. To sip by the fireplace.
Very lively and exciting. Dry end. Definitely made for the future. It actually tastes more European than Argentine to me. It's long on structure rather than fragrance. This is the second vintage of this wine, while it’s extremely luscious, it is perhaps a bit less complete than the Nicolás Catena Zapata. (JR) 17.5/20 points
