This 2 year old Napa Malbec is a nice surprise. Although very young, it is very approachable. Tasty and tangy. Showing nice complexity with a soft and smooth mouthfeel.
Good by itself or with food. Easy
drinking, fruit forward and very pleasant. Rich, elegant and smooth.
Good right out of the bottle, and better after 2 hours of airtime. Will be nice to revisit it in 3 years, and see how it evolved.
Paired nicely with my stinky French Brie cheese.
100% Malbec grapes were aged in American and French oak barrels (mostly French) for 18 months. A small production of only 250 cases.
14.2% alcohol by volume.

Great QPR Cahors with a bit of tannat in it! Dark fruit, oak, and herbs, obviously tannic due to its age but the concentration shows that it will develop nicely! — 3 days ago
Another reminder why Patagonia wines are worth seeking out.A higher toned Malbec & sleeker- as if all the notes are moved up a notch. A player in a dinner w friends: Pasta E Fagioli w Radicchio, Spinach torte w raisins & nutmeg, Braised beef w white wine, & almond/ ricotta torte. — 2 days ago

The 2019 Malbec Estate Selection from Uco Valley offers precise and attractive notes of fresh, sour cherry, plum and hints of lavender, violet and thyme. On the palate, it is a mix of flavors framed by fine, reactive tannins. Finishes juicy, with well-integrated freshness and fruity flavors. $25.00 (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, October 2021) — 7 days ago
Dark and on its way to a depth that resonates quality; but not quite. Cherry, burnt caramel, espresso and earthy oak. At 16, I’ll buy a few more for the Fall. — 2 days ago
