Lancatay Malbec 2009

External Review by Premier Wine & Spirits:

Bright medium ruby. Cassis, blackberry and licorice aromas lifted by a violet topnote. Juicy, supple, ripe and sweet, with a bitter chocolate flavor leavened by a minty nuance. Finishes with substantial dusty, slightly dry tannins.

Aromas of red fruits and toasted nuts; soft and round, with firm, sweet tannins. Match it with meats, pasta or strong cheeses.

This 100% Malbec is made from grapes grown in high-altitude vineyards, and vinified in stainless steel tanks, then aged in French and American oak. It is unfined and unfiltered. Deep purple-red in color, it has aromas of plum and cherry, and exhibits sweet tannins that are complex and persistent on the palate. It is a soft and round wine, an ideal match for meat, pastas and cheeses.

Mendoza, ArgentinaLancatay Malbec is a standout red wine gem from Huarpe Wines in Argentina. The Toso family immigrated to Argentina and planted vines in the 19th century and carries on its winemaking tradition today. Lancatay means "foothills of the Andes" in the Huarpe language, and the name perfectly describes the family's high-altitude vineyards sourcing this wine. Jay Miller for Wine Advocate just rated this 2009 vintage 90 points!Lancatay Malbec is deep violet in color with a beautiful nose of raspberries, plums, red currants, roasted nuts, vanilla and spice. Soft and round with firm, sweet tannins, it is full-bodied and well balanced. Aged in French oak, it is rich and silky on the palate with a long, elegant finish.Enjoy Lancatay Malbec over the next 5-6 years with steak, beef empanadas, BBQ ribs, pastas and strong cheeses.
