Matervini Malbec Cafayate Valley Alteza 2019

$90

More nuanced, showing spaces between the suave flavors of berry and plum, adding floral hints and dried beef details, with mineral underpinnings to keep the fruit honest. A bit shy for now, but there's promise. Best after 2024. 150 cases made, 111 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.
