Region: La Consulta, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina Grape(s): Malbec Winemaker: Phillipe Caraguel Drinks Best: Now - 5 Years
Winemaker Phillipe Caraguel studied winemaking in France with the intention of returning home to Argentina to bring old world techniques to his native land. In 2006, he realized his dream with Bodegas Atamisque. For his top expression of Malbec, he sources grapes from an 87 year old vineyard in La Consulta. Sorted by hand, twice, only the very best fruit makes it into this cuvée. Aged for 14 months in new French Oak, this Malbec is intense and full-flavored. Aromas and flavors of blackberries and plums are accented with notes of coffee and tobacco with firm tannins on its lengthy finish.
Pairings: Grilled skirt steak with polenta, tomatoes, & parmesan
