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.
