  1. Lacapelle Cabanac Cahors Tradition 2018
    $12.98
    Availability:In Stock
    Importer notes: A decisive, fresh palate of black cherries and currants with lively tannin and a bit of smoke. Pairs nicely with grilled steak, roasted lamb, or braised duck. Learn More
  2. Bodega Noemia Malbec A Lisa Patagonia 2017
    JS93
    WA93
    $15.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! Even after only a few weeks of being bottled, the 2017 A Lisa was expressive, exuberant and open. It has a little less alcohol and more acidity than the 2016 I tasted next to it, but it is especially much cleaner and more focused. It's always a similar blend of grapes from 15- to 40-year-old vineyards, mostly Malbec with 9% Merlot and a pinch of Petit Verdot. It fermented with 10% full clusters and matured in used barriques and stainless steel vats for ten months. 2017 saw a warm couple of weeks around the harvest, but the wines show moderate to low alcohol (lower than 2016) and good freshness in a balanced year. Proprietor and winemaker Hans Vinding Diers compares it to 2011, with mostly red fruit, a touch of black too, juicy and with balanced ripeness. It has a pleasant mouthfeel, with lightness, bright fruit and very nice acidity. - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com Learn More
  3. Colome Estate Malbec Salta 2016
    JS92
    WA91
    $19.98
    Availability:In Stock
    92 Points! Brimming with blueberry, violet and bitter chocolate notes, this is an extravagant yet very fresh and well-structured expression of Salta malbec. If you can give it until 2020, then the bold, dry tannins will soften and may make it more elegant. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More

    92 Points! Very pure and attractive blueberry and cassis aromas and flavors here. This is a smoothly refined and flavorful, young offering. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold. - jamesSuckling.com Learn More
  5. Catena Zapata D.V. Tinto Historico Red Blend Mendoza 2015
    JS93
    $14.98
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! Aromas of mushroom, dark fruit. Hints of dark chocolate. Full and lightly chewy with a lovely texture and a ripe fruit finish. Juicy and delicious. I like the tea and bark at the finish. - JamesSuckling.com Learn More
  6. Catena Zapata Argentino Malbec Mendoza 2015
    WS94
    JD96
    JS94
    WA95
    $94.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! A vineyard selection from old vines, the 2015 Malbec Argentino is all Malbec sourced from the Angelica Vineyard (Lunlunta District) and Nicasia Vineyard (Altamira District) and aged two years in new French oak barrels. This uber-sexy, opulent 2015 offers a rock star bouquet of blueberries, blackcurrants, smoked earth, chocolate, and tobacco leaf, with an almost Graves-like minerality and earthiness that develops with time in the glass. Ripe, full-bodied, and plush on the palate, it nevertheless has density and depth, with notable tannins, moderate acidity, and a great finish. It’s a brilliant wine from this beautiful estate to drink over the coming 10-15 years. - Jeb Dunnuck. jebdunnuck.com Learn More

  8. Zuccardi Malbec Poligonos Tupungato (Gualtallary) 2016
    JS94
    WA94
    $26.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! There is a big jump in quality in the 2016 Polígonos Gualtallary compared with the 2015, as they realized that the grapes there ripen earlier than in Altamira, even though the vineyards are much higher (Gualtallary is at 1,350 meters in altitude compared to Altamira at 1,100), which does not follow any (known) logic. They also separated the harvest by soil, which has increased the levels of precision and freshness. This is the most mineral and austere of the three Malbec Polígonos from 2016. Amazing value too! - Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com

  13. Decero Malbec Remolinos Vineyard Mendoza 2016
    WS90
    JD90
    WA90
    $17.98
    Availability:In Stock
    90 Points! The 2016 Malbec Remolinos Vineyard is a big, ripe, opulent effort that, like the 2015, is a terrific value. Blueberries, jammy black raspberries, ground pepper, and underbrush all give way to a ripe, full-bodied Malbec that has terrific purity and balance. It’s a sexy fruit bomb to drink over the coming 4-5 years. - Jeb Dunnuck, jebdunnuck.com Learn More
  14. Trapiche Malbec Finca Ambrosia Mendoza 2013
    JS95
    WA96
    $39.98
    Availability:In Stock
    96 Points! As it tends to happen, the 2013 Terroir Series Malbec Finca Ambrosía is my favorite from the series. It has all the flowers, wild herbs and austere minerality from the high-altitude place in a cool year. It's both delicate and powerful—a combination rare to find. This is a textbook example of the variety, place and vintage. Bravo! - Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate Issue #237
     
     
    95 Points! This is a very linear and refined with a purity of fruit and stone character. Full body, and intense. Plenty of fruit but in a focused and serious way. Needs at least two to three years of bottle age. - James Suckling, jamessuckling.com

  16. De Martino Limavida Old Vine Malbec 2011
    JS92
    WA93
    VM92
    Special Price $27.98 Regular Price $48.00
    Availability:In Stock
    93 Points! The 2011 Single Vineyard Limavida is produced with the fruit from a 2.3-hectare, un-grafted, dry-farmed, old vineyard from Maule planted back in 1945 with mixed varieties, mainly Malbec (around 80%) and other red grapes, mainly Carmenere and Cabernet Sauvignon on granitic soils. It displays a bright ruby color with strong aromas of flowers (the telltale violets that the best Malbec really masters) and notes of aniseed, red fruit, licorice, smoked hints and the tension and acidity from the old vines with fine-grained tannins. With time in the glass, it develops a beautiful orange peel note that makes it appealing and fresh. A serious red from Maule. Delicious! - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate # 213

  17. Zorzal Wines Eggo Tinto de Tiza 2014
    DEC96
    WA94
    $23.98
    Availability:In Stock
    94 Points! The 2014 Eggo Tinto de Tiza is a blend from three different vineyards in Tupungato Winelands in Gualtallary. It's a blend of mostly Malbec with some Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. As is the case with the whole Eggo range, the wine didn't see any oak, and in this case it was matured in egg-shaped cement vats for one year. There are violets, plums, dark cherries and something earthy. This is slightly riper than the 2013. The medium-bodied palate has is fresh with a silky texture, pure flavors and a mineral-driven finish. At this price I'd buy it by the case. Super! - Luis Gutierrez, Wine Advocate #220
