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.

RP9191 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The 2021 Reserva Malbec Cabernet Franc has the backbone and tannic structure of the 30% Cabernet Franc that complements neatly the Malbec and especially for this kind of Malbec, which doesn’t have the mineral backbone of the higher ranges (especially in their Zuccardi project). This excels for 2021. 100,000 bottles. (Luis Gutiérrez)
JS9191 pts. - JamesSuckling.com - Tuesday, May 3, 2022
Notes of black cherries and dark berries, plums, lavender, lemon zest, hazelnuts and tobacco leaves. It’s medium-bodied with fine-grained tannins. Vibrant, fruity and gently peppery with a fresh, succulent finish. Drink or hold. (James Suckling)

RP92+92+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The 2021 BenMarco Malbec was produced with fruit from Los Chacayes in Valle de Uco, fermented destemmed in stainless steel and matured in second use French oak barrels for 11 months. It’s floral, spicy, aromatic, showy and expressive with the aromatic flowers with very integrated oak. It has both good ripeness, 14.3% alcohol, with good freshness and fine tannins. They produced an impressive 240,000 bottles. (Luis Gutiérrez)
VN9292 pts. - Vinous - Nov 2022
The 2021 Malbec BenMarco from Los Chacayes, Uco Valley was aged for 11 months in used barrels. Purple in the glass. The crystal clear nose offers violets and fresh plum with hints of cherry. It’s free-flowirg in the mouth with good intensity and volume and coarse but polished tannins that sculpt the body and juicy, fresh flow. Long-lasting and vivid, this is a red that successfully delivers the energy to be had in this terroir. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
SP8787 pts. - Wine Spectator - Aug 31, 2023
Broad, ripe and juicy, but perhaps too reliant upon the fruit, with only subtle herb and spice notes chiming in on the finish. Drink now. 19,000 cases made, 14,000 cases imported. (Aaron Romano)

Solid black cherries, tangy herbs and spices on the nose with a hint of white pepper and violet. Fruity, firm, and slightly simple and direct on the medium-bodied palate, but shows excellent balance and drinkability with its crunchy dark fruit. Drink now. Screw cap.

Lean and fresh, this firms up malbec’s blueberry flavors with a fruit-skin snap and spring violet scents.

RP9090 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
I tasted the 2021 Reserva Malbec next to the 2022, the same as with the other reds in the Reserva Range, and it was interesting to see how, despite being similar years, the 2022s have a little more precision. This is what Santa Julia is about—fruit and varietal character with freshness, balance and moderate oak. Here, 20% of the volume matured in used French oak barrels for 10 months, and the rest was kept in stainless steel. 800,000 bottles. (Luis Gutiérrez)

The 2021 Bonarda La Posta Armando from Guaymallen, Mendoza is purple in color. It has a nose of gentle raspberry notes and hints of herb. This is a satisfying, everyday wine that is lean, creamy and rich in the mouth with mild freshness and an expansive palate. (Joaquín Hidalgo)
WE9090 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 3/1/2023
The attractive nose displays aromas of both flowers and berries. It is full bodied, with layers of cherry and blackberry on a smooth palate. Hints of coffee add to its moderate complexity. This is a good example of the Bonarda grape: fruity and enjoyable. (Jesica Vargas)
RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 30th Nov 2022
The faintly rustic 2021 Armando Bonarda has notes of ripe berries and an earthy touch and a juicy and round palate with dusty tannins that would welcome food. (Luis Gutiérrez)

The 2021 Pizzella Malbec is ripe without excess and shows more black than red fruit, and it’s juicy and velvety, dense and with fine tannins. It has a touch of vanilla that makes it very attractive and pleasant. (Luis Gutiérrez)
