Argentine Wine

Argentina is one of the top five wine-producing countries in the world. For a long time, most of the wine was made for local consumption. But in the past quarter-century, an increasing number of vintners began making very serious releases with the most widely planted red grape, Malbec. These made a big splash on the international scene, winning awards, garnering high ratings and amassing enthusiastic disciples. Torrontes is the star indigenous white grape, now on many restaurant menus for its refreshing, aromatic qualities and affordability. An increasing number of international grapes are grown, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. All styles of wine are made from dry whites and reds, rosés, sparkling, late harvest sweet wines and fortified wines.

Argentina boasts an impressive number of wine-makers under the age of thirty-five, and a growing number of women innovating the field. This is a country that has learned that investing quality and Read more »

  • Cueva de las Manos Malbec 2007

    Snoothrank:

    A lot going on in this wine! At first whiff, I catch roasted pecan and a little chocolate and maybe a little leather. Full-bodied, velvety, dark cherry with oak with a nice lingering finish. After the oak, it ends on a slight fruity note. I like this! Read More

  • Don Miguel Gascon Malbec 2008

    Snoothrank:

    I had this at the Bonefish Grill. They always serve the reds at 65 degrees. This was one of the best values I've had in wine. I bought a case right after dinner. It has a clean bouquet and nice finish. Best I've had under $12. Read More

    We also just tried this wine, sort of by accident on a tasting table. We loved it - for the price, I wish I could find more for everyday drinking. Read More

    Ruby-red color that leaves legs down the side of the glass. Smells like fruity yet caramel and earth tones too. Nice oak that lingers. I would buy this again. i only paid $7! Read More

  • Cantena Alta Malbec Mendoza Argentina 2005

    Snoothrank:

    A nice savory, earthy nose, this is a malbec with body. Beautiful integrated fruit, its a powerful wine compared to many south american wines that are all fruit and sweet. The finish is on solid, yet balanced, tannins. Very nice. Blueberry on the finish Read More

  • Kaiken Malbec 2006

    Snoothrank:

    Mocha, tobacco, oak! Be careful to get the real thing: Kaiken Malbec Ultra -- as opposed to just the Kaiken Malbec. Very different quality of wines! I found the 2006 Malbec Ultra outstanding for the price -- $14.99 Read More
