  Graffigna, with a winemaking tradition that spans 140 years, has the honor of being the oldest winery in the Argentine province of San Juan, the second oldest in the country and the first winery in Argentina to sell branded wines. Today, Graffigna is one of Pernod Ricard's four global wine brands and iconic of Argentina's progress as a quality wine producer. In recent years, as part of our philosophy of continuous improvement, Graffigna launched a viticulture study and development process in San Juan with the support of an international team of experts led by Victor Marcantoni and with the consultancy of renowned winemaker Phil Laffer. An ambitious investment plan was also deployed. In order to increase production and storage capacity, cutting-edge agricultural technology, equipment and production techniques were incorporated.   In 2009, Graffigna was named "Winery of the Year" in the USA by The Critics Challenge and Graffigna Centenario became the most awarded Malbec of 2007-2008. Moreover, in 2010, Graffigna's Malbecs (Grand Reserve and Centenario) were awarded with 90 points by acclaimed critic Robert Parker. Today, Graffigna continues to consistently embrace innovation without relinquishing its rich history and tradition. Read less

Wonderful Burgundy coloration with hints of tawny around the edges...thin bodied in appearance. Aromas of blackberry, smooth vanilla and peppery spice, slight alcohol and woody notes. The flavors that are fruit forward, fresh yet with the aforementioned peppery notes. The mouthfeel is fresh, light and easy drinking for a Malbec....warming upon the swallow....it's not quite as rich as I was hoping and could probably use another couple years of aging when it will hopefully round out. Decent but I've had better



Tasting Notes:

Deep red color with shades of violet. On the nose, great complexity with ripe blackberry aromas, hints of pepper and spices. Well balanced with smooth ripe tannins, complex and persistant.
