Cruz Andina Malbec 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Always a smart buy in delicious Argentine Malbec!Legendary vintner Agustin Huneeus has partnered with Carlos Pulenta, a third generation vintner of Mendoza's Pulenta family, and winemaker Alvaro Espinoza to produce Cruz Andina Malbec, his first proprietary wine from Argentina. The partnership combines Agustin Huneeus long quest to produce unique wines from special places, along with Carlos Pulenta's vast knowledge with Malbec and his inside vision of the Mendoza appellations. Alvaro collaborates with Cruz Andina in every aspect of the wine, from site selection and canopy management in the vineyard to determining the final blend.Cruz Andina is a Malbec-based blend that represents the unique character of high altitude and old vines from Mendoza. The wine expresses Malbec's exceptional concentration with a soft, supple texture.

What happens when a bunch of Chileans come over the Andes to Argentina to make wine? Actually, they do a darned good job. Behind a splendidly funky bouquet of eggplant and mushroom, there’s an earthy flavor punctuated by an acidic note of red currant. A very savory, not exactly generous, but uncompromising wine.
