Description

Luján de Cuyo is a wine-producing sub-region of Argentina's largest viticultural area, Mendoza. Unsurprisingly, Malbec is the region's most-important grape variety, producing bold, intensely flavored red wines.

Broadly speaking, French Malbec tends to be more meaty, rustic and tannic. Examples from Argentina seem to run from bright and fresh through to the more established export style; rich, ripe, jammy and juicy.

Generalizing further, fruit aromas tend somewhat towards the plummy character of Merlot, rather than the blackcurrant of Cabernet Sauvignon. Fresher lighter examples can tend more towars red fruits. However it can be Malbec's inky color intensity which provides the clearest differentation. On both sides of the Atlantic, Malbec wines are generally aged in oak to enhance the wine's structure and aging potential. This can give the wines a pronounced chocolate character.

Tasting note: "The grapes for this red are sourced from a vineyard planted in 1928 in Luján de Cuyo. It exhibits a dense and fruit-forward bouquet. The palate offers ripe plum, blueberry and rosemary, all intertwined. Moderate acidity and supple tannins provide support. It finishes with subtle coffee notes."
