Where It's From

Region / Mendoza

View more wines from Mendoza

Mendoza is Argentina's biggest wine region, and with a footprint that spans a diverse geography, it's able to produce a wide array of wines. Chief amongst them are Argentina's ever-popular Malbecs, but you'll also find world-class Cabernet Sauvignons, Chardonnays, and more produced here. The geography is diverse, but tends to be mountainous, and the higher elevations play a sizable role in grape growing, providing cooler temperatures at night.

Country / Argentina

View more wines from Argentina

Argentina took the wine world spotlight in the late 20th century with its plush, smooth Malbec. While the popular red grape still reigns supreme, Argentine wineries are increasingly putting forth excellent examples of multiple varietals, all at the extraordinary bargains that make this region so accessible.

Now the fifth largest wine-producing nation in the world, Argentina enjoys high-altitude and low-humidity vineyard sites, comparatively unencumbered by insects and disease. Argentina’s unique terroir has captured the interest of such internationally celebrated winemakers as Paul Hobbs and Michel Rolland, both of whom have projects in the country.

Cheval des Andes 2018 / 750 ml.

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 96836

RP9898 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 16th Sep 2021
The 2018 Cheval des Andes is a blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon fermented in small lots in 3,000- to 8,000-liter tanks and matured 40% in 225-liter oak barrels, 40% in 400-liter oak barrels and the remaining 20% in 2,500-liter oak vats for 13 months. Ninety percent of the oak used was French and the rest a blend of Austrian, Slovenian and German oak, 50% of it new. 2018 has been one of the best vintages in recent times in Mendoza, and the wine shows it. It’s a cooler vintage, and the wine has improved in freshness and elegance without losing any clout. It’s 14.5% alcohol and has a pH of 3.73. This is young, juicy, elegant and balanced and still has some herbal and toasted notes; it’s medium to full-bodied, with the creamy and luxurious texture of the modern Bordeaux, ultra fine tannins and a long, dry and precise finish. It’s still undeveloped and seems to have all the components and the balance between them for a long and positive development in bottle. With wines like this, I sometimes wish I had a time machine so I could see them in 20 years from now… I think this is the finest Cheval des Andes I’ve ever tasted. 100,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in January 2020.
JS9898 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Friday, December 4, 2020
This is a plush, rich Cheval with blueberry and floral aromas and flavors. HInts of tar and fresh lavender. Full body. The depth and richness are impressive, as are the ripe yet fresh tannins. Very long and structured, yet controlled and in balance. This will be a great wine indeed. Release in September 2021. Drink after 2023.
VN9696 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2021
The 2018 Cheval Des Andes is a blend of 70% Malbec — half from Las Compuertas and half from Paraje Altamira — and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from Las Compuertas. It was aged in barrels and foudres, 50% in new oak. Purplish red in the glass. It shows an expressively complex nose of plum, cherry and hints of spice, pepper, ink, blackberry, and blackcurrant. The oak provides a profound and subtle backdrop of sweet spice. In the mouth, it’s viscous and broad with a little juice, velvety in texture and with very fine tannins. The finish is long-lasting with a satisfying feel. A relaxed, delicate, extremely well-balanced wine with a more generous core than the 2017 vintage.
SP9292 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2022
Big and rich, with expressive beef and earthy notes to the dark plum and roasted dark cherry flavors, which are backed by firm tannins and acidity. Creamy in the midpalate, with hints of dried green herbs and dark chocolate on the finish. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2026. 7,500 cases made, 2,500 cases imported. (Kim Marcus)

A pure malbec that is juicy and delicious with subtle blackberry, dark-chocolate and hazelnut character. Medium to full body. Round tannins. Extremely juicy and delicious. Drink now.
WE9191 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/2021
Baked blackberry and plum aromas include notes of coffee and raisin on the nose. Spiky acidity lends texture to the medium-depth palate, while this tastes of blackberry and cassis before transitioning to chocolate and toast on the finish. Drink through 2024.

Catena Alta Malbec 2018 / 750 ml.

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 96626

JS9595 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, April 2, 2020
Beautiful blackberries and green tea with some blueberries. Medium body with beautiful balance, freshness and whole-berry sensibility and brightness. Subtle and sophisticated. Drink or hold.
RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st Mar 2021
The 2018 Catena Alta Malbec shows more evolution and ripeness than the 2019. It’s varietal and floral with a mixture of red and black fruit, sweet spices and aromatic herbs. It has moderate ripeness — in fact, it’s a little lower in alcohol than the 2019 — a medium body and fine-grained tannins, with good grip. 162,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2019.
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
A Malbec from Mendoza made from a selection of parcels in different terroirs in Primera Zona and the Uco Valley that spent 18 months in French oak, this is complexity in a bottle. The ripe, layered, evolving nose delivers plum and violet notes followed by a hint of acidic cherry over a woody backdrop. Fleshy on the palate, it offers the good grip and volume typical of Malbec as part of a satisfying combination that also includes a terse texture and juicy freshness.
SP9191 pts. - Wine Spectator - Mar 31, 2022
Well-structured and juicy, with dark cherry and plum tart flavors that feature firm tannins and acidity. The spicy finish offers baker’s chocolate notes and peppery hints. Drink now through 2024. 13,500 cases made, 3,500 cases imported. (Kim Marcus)
WS9090 pts. - Wine & Spirits - 10/21
This is a selection of individual blocks from the Catena vineyards in Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. Each block ferments separately on indigenous yeasts, with lees stirring to stabilize it and reduce the addition of sulfur. Eighteen months of oak aging leaves an impression that dampens the finish, but the beginning is spring-like and vivacious, like a meadow in bloom. It’s got the firmness to match up with summer sausage and hard cheeses on a picnic.

Fresh-plum, brambleberry, hibiscus and citrus-zest aromas. It’s medium-bodied with sleek, fine tannins and crisp acidity. Fresh and juicy with crushed stones on the finish. Drink or hold.
VN9191 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
Appellation Paraje Altamira explores the more austere side of Malbec. It was harvested quite early and aged in foudres. The nose offers violet, thyme and blackberry as part of a markedly reductive profile. Juicy on the palate with fine tannins, chalk and a restrained feel; the freshness is key. Persistent with an herbal profile. Regular drinkers of Malbec might well be caught unawares: this is a statement wine.

Trivento Eolo 2018 / 750 ml.

2018 / 750 ml.

Item #: 99735

RP9595 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The 2018 Eolo comes from a vineyard planted in 1912 on the banks of the Mendoza River, four hectares in Luján de Cuyo. It fermented with selected yeasts and matured for 18 months 50% in new French oak barrels and 50% in oak foudre. It’s a powerful Malbec with 14.5% alcohol, good concentration and balance and is a little closed and quite young. It’s aromatic and floral with sweet spices, classical and with typical Luján character. It continues on the path toward freshness initiated some years ago. 13,300 bottles were filled in November 2019. (Luis Gutiérrez)
WE9494 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 9/1/2022
Great complexity on the nose with enticing floral, blackberry, plum and subtle oak notes. This red is concentrated and lively with firm and silky tannins. The palate delivers plenty of dark fruit flavors with hints of smoke and nice acidity due to a smart use of oak. It is an elegant full-bodied wine made from 100 year old vines, and has a lingering finish with fruit flavors. (Jesica Vargas)
VN9494 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2021
Trivento’s 2018 Malbec Eolo from Vistalba, Luján de Cuyo was aged for 16 months, 50% in varied use toasted barrels and 50% in foudres. Dark purple in the glass, the complex aromas include ripe plum, blackberry and blueberry with pepper and notes from the aging process such as cedar and vanilla. Broad and voluminous on the palate, the precise freshness livens up the flow and lends depth. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
JS9393 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Thursday, April 8, 2021
Ripe-plum, blueberry, lavender and cocoa aromas. It’s full-bodied with ripe, rounded tannins. Smooth and seamless, almost buttery, with layers of dark fruit and sweet spice. Fresh mid-palate, but leads to a long, evolving finish. Drink or hold.

Perfumed nose of elderflowers, orange blossoms, lychees, white peaches and green apples. It’s medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and a fruity, floral and crisp palate. Excellent freshness. Zesty finish. Vegan. Drink now. Screw cap.

The 2021 Torrontés Crios is a 50/50 blend of grapes from Cafayate & Paraje Altamira. Pale green in the glass. With a nose of jasmine, rose, lime, lychee and hints of herbs, it has good fat and volume for the variety. The freshness is well-integrated and the alcohol unusually and admirably low at 12.5%.

The 2021 Malbec Crios from the Uco Valley was 40% aged in used barrels. Purple in hue. The nose offers notes of plum and violets, which come through very clearly for a wine in this price range, over a bed of vanilla. In the mouth, it’s juicy and expansive with a little grip and a flavorful, black tea profile. The 2021 is a textured Malbec with an expressive, fruity core. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
