Aruma Malbec Mendoza 2020

Categories , ,

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. 92 points from James Suckling who says this is the year to start to drink it, and 90 more from Vinous who called this one, “a big but nuanced Red”

Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec. This is always going to be the definition of a “No-Brainer”.

Original price was: $21.00.Current price is: $15.00.

92 Points, James Suckling
Blackberries, dark spices and cloves. A hint of iodine, too. Ripe blackberries on the palate with a broad, dense tannin frame. A little richer and more generous than the 2021, with more black fruit than blue fruit, but less taut and linear on the palate. Starting to open up now. Oak-free. Drink from 2023

90 Points, Vinous
The 2020 Malbec Aruma comes from different vineyards in the Uco Valley, Mendoza and spent a year in fine lees. This vintage delivers remarkably intense, fruity notes of candied plum, violets and a pure, alluring bed of herbs. The juice of the region combines with the 2020 climate to energize a palate of potent but balanced alcohol. This is a big but nuanced red.


92 Pts, James Suckling – 90 Pts, Vinous

This offer is really an easy one. Two of the greatest wine pioneers from two different hemispheres (Baron Eric Rothschild from ‘Chateau Lafite Rothschild’ and Nicolas Catena from ‘Catena’) join forces to make a delicious, Bordeaux style Malbec, crafted nearly 4600 feet above sea level and offered for a fantastic price. This beauty that Vinous called, “remarkably intense” is a case-buy all the way every single vintage released.
