Limestone soils. Organic farming. Estate fruit from vineyards a mile above sea level. Unfined and unfiltered, matured in French oak for 12 months. How the hell can Argentina make a Malbec this serious for 14 bucks? Is it the exchange rate? Or a spacetime-refuting wormhole? We’re not sure, but for now we’re happy to reap the benefits. The Uco Valley AVA in southern Mendoza sits at the base of the Andes at 4000 feet; ideal for a winemaker interested as much in balance as they are in ripeness. Richly fruited: blackberry, mocha, earth. Loco value from the Uco!
