Alta Vista Alto Mendoza 2018

$90

A striking red that melds layers of brambly raspberry, mission fig and guava against savory elements of peppercorn, olive and bay leaf. This has room to grow, as the finish features tannic grip but also length and a note of chocolate-laced raspberry. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2032. 1,000 cases made, 54 cases imported.

Summary

Primary Grape

Malbec

Malbec originated in Southwest France, where it's also known as Côt; it is still the main grape in the area's top appellation, Cahors. It was once a significant blending partner in Bordeaux's reds, but has largely fallen out of favor there. Farther north in France, it has a presence in the Loire Valley. However, Malbec today is most associated with Argentina, where it has become the signature red grape. It's also grown in other New World regions, including Chile and Australia.
