Familia Zuccardi Malbec Paraje Altamira Finca Piedra Infinita 2019

$175

A wonderful example of the elegant side of Malbec, with vanilla bean and violet notes that pave the way for a rich, caressing mouthful of fresh plum and raspberry flavors, which are buoyed by lively mineral acidity and keep the finish singing around orange peel and dusty cocoa hints, with firming tannins. Drink now through 2034. 500 cases made, 450 cases imported.

Summary

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.
