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. 93 points from James Suckling who raved about the wine calling it “Pure Malbec” that’s “hard to not drink right now.”
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 $15/btl. This is truly the definition of a “No-Brainer”.
93 Points, James Suckling
The smoke, black-tea and dark-berry aromas and flavors are really impressive. Hints of coffee. Full body, firm yet lightly rounded tannins and a flavorful finish. Hard not to drink now. Pure Malbec. No wood. Drink now.
