Alta Vista Estate Malbec 2017 Argentine Red Wine 750 mL
Alta Vista Estate Malbec 2017 Argentine Red Wine 750 mL

Wine Advocate 91 points - The 2017 Estate Malbec was produced with grapes from Las Compuertas in Lujan de Cuyo and from their Vista Flores estate vineyard, which is planted at 1,100 meters in altitude. It fermented in concrete vats, and half of the volume aged in used oak barrels for 12 months. This is the breakthrough year for the Estate line, which is quite different from the 2016s and earlier vintages. There is a lot less oak here (only 33% new barrels compared with 100% used in the past), and there is more sense of place and finer minerality. This is a lot purer, with more varietal characteristics, great tannins and a long, tasty finish. This is also lower in alcohol (13.6%). 350,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2018..June/2018

Altos Las Hormigas Appellation Altamira Malbec 2013 Argentina Red Wine
Altos Las Hormigas Appellation Altamira Malbec 2013 Argentina Red Wine
95 Points: Wine Advocate, August 2015
"Seeing the differences between the Appellation Malbecs in 2013 is splitting hairs. The 2013 Malbec Appellation Altamira is sourced from the alluvial terraces of the Tunuyán River in Altamira where the soils are very rich in calcium carbonate, the ideal for Altos las Hormigas in terms of elegance and minerality. The wine matured in untoasted 3,500-liter French oak foudres, like all in this range. There's more peach here compared to the florals of the Gualtallary, and it feels a little less ripe than the Vista Flores. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity and very fine tannins. It ends with a chalky minerality that sticks to your teeth. Great terroir Malbec at an incredible price. 5,532 bottles produced.

Altos las Hormigas continues the path of elegance, balance and chalky minerality in their wines. The Appellation bottlings are very good. Unfortunately, I didn't get to taste their Bonarda, which is one of the benchmark wines for the variety. 1,200,000 bottles in total. Drink 2015-2025" - Robert Parker

"Elegant is the best way to describe this wine. Like a ballet dancer, full of
strength and muscle – but linear, graceful and delicate. Deep ruby with hints
of purple, with a captivating nose of freshly picked fruit, crisp plums, and
fields of wild flowers. This Malbec dances on your palate, with round, silky,
elegant tannins. The finish is long and complex, drawing you in for the next
sip." - The Winery

Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Classico Argentinian Red Wine 750 mL
Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Classico Argentinian Red Wine 750 mL
"A blend of 100% Malbec grapes harvested by hand from vineyards in Medrano, Lujan de Cuyo, and the Uco Valley in a smaller percentage. The area has a semi-desert climate with hot days and cool nights. Deep, fresh soils delay ripening, and avoid stress. These are sandy loams where the clay component provides mineral nutrients and water retention, while the sand component prevents the silt and clay part from compacting excessively and guarantees water drainage. An extended ripening season is relied on to give the Malbec its intensity and balanced flavor profile." The Importer

Altos Las Hormigas Malbec Valle de Uco Terroir 2015 Argentina Red Wine
89 Points Vinous Media March 2016
"Moderately saturated medium red. Aromas of currant, cherry, tobacco, leather and mocha. Suave and fine-grained, with lightly herbal flavors of redcurrant, plum and currant complicated by a hint of dried flowers. Riper than the Malbec Clásico but still a bit pinched on the back half, and without quite the depth of flavor of the Appellation bottlings." - Stephen Tanzer

88 Points Wine Spectator November 2015
"Features accents of dried beef and hoisin sauce to the roasted plum and dried berry flavors. Notes of green herbs show on the finish. A firm and fleshy red. Drink now. 6,500 cases made."

Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza Argentina Red Wine 750 mL
Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza Argentina Red Wine 750 mL

Over the past 20 years, Nicolás and Laura Catena and their vineyard management team have worked tirelessly in the discovery, identification and development of key microclimates in the high altitude wine country of Mendoza, Argentina. Nicolás Catena has planted an almost countless number of varietals and clones throughout his mountain vineyard sites. This quest for quality lead Nicolás and Laura Catena to a crucial discovery regarding the influence of altitude on grape cultivation in Mendoza.

Observing the important differences in soil types, average temperatures and thermal amplitudes that exist at varying altitudes, he found that vineyard sites which are just a few kilometers apart can have vast differences in altitude and possess remarkably different microclimates. Over the years, the in depth study of these different microclimates led Nicolás to determine that the same varietal, and even the same clone, presented distinct aromatic and flavor profiles when cultivated in each of these unique microclimates. Implementing the age old art of assemblage, he found that by blending these different lots of the same varietal, he could achieve a more complex wine.

Catena Malbec Mendoza Argentina Red Wine 750 mL

James Suckling 92 points (2015) - Aromas of blackberry and walnut with hints of flowers. Medium body, focused and bright with dried fruit and just a hint of mushroom in the aftertaste. Drink now..June/2017

The Catena family has conducted extensive research into the soils and microclimates of Mendoza's high altitude wine country in the foothills of the Andes mountains. At different altitudes, the family’s Malbec vineyards express a unique profile of aromas and flavors: the ripe plum fruit flavors and silky texture of the Angelica vineyard (2,850’ elevation); the dark fruit character and pepper notes of the La Pirámide vineyard (3,100’ elevation); the black cherry aromas and excellent structure of the Altamira vineyard (3,870’ elevation); the explosive floral aromatics full, concentrated mouthfeel of the Adrianna vineyard (5,000’). The blend of these components creates a wine of unique character that has balance, concentration and a strong varietal identity.
