This wine is a product of the very special partnership between Baron de Rothschild and Nicolas Catena Zapata, godfather of Argentinian wines and the man wine writer Jancis Robinson credits for, “Putting Argentina on the Map”. Two men of absolutely enormous stature in the industry.
With a pretty much bottomless budget, the two found the perfect spot in the Southwest of Mendoza in Valle de Uco where the truest expression of Malbec and Cabernet could be crafted. Right out of the gate, the two were feeling their oats. 91 points from James Suckling and Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate echoed the sentiment with 90 points as well. All for a $13 bottle of wine.
Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec that you can somehow get for under $14/btl on cases. This is truly the definition of a “No-Brainer”.

This is a no-wood malbec with such pretty and enticing aromas and flavors. Dark berry and green tea undertones. Medium-to-full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Drink now.
90 Points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
The unoaked Malbec 2017 Aruma is 100% from Valle de Uco, and they want to show the pure expression of the grape in the place. This wine was born in 2009 and represents a very good value as an introduction to Valle de Uco. It’s very juicy and fruit-driven, and it seems to have evolved positively since the last time I tasted it. Very pleasant, easy to drink, pure, clean and easy to like.
