Region: Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina

Varietal: 100% Malbec

Tasting notes: This Malbec shows a funky, beautiful reductive nose, that leads to secondary aromas of black plum, ground green peppercorn and a touch of tar. The acidity is outstanding as is the length of the finish. The palate pops with accents of black currant, blue plum and a bit of peppered salami. For only $23, this wine is outstanding and deserves a spot on your every day drinking list.

Producer: Corazon del Sol crafts captivating Malbec and Grenache-based wines that capture the best of Argentina’s unique, high altitude terroir. Cultivated in the Uco Valley, which is situated in Mendoza on the eastern side of the Andes Mountains, their vines enjoy over 300 days of sunshine a year. In 2008, Dr. Madaiah Revana went to Argentina seeking to add to his family of estate wineries which includes Revana Family Vineyard in Napa Valley and Alexana Winery in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Enthralled by the terroir of the Uco Valley, he was determined to find his next great estate here on the incredible alluvial soils of the Andes Mountains.

Vineyard and Winemaking: The 17 acres of estate vineyard are planted at the base of the Andes at an elevation of 3,000 feet. A visually stunning background, the Andes are also responsible for the incredibly deep, alluvial soils which define Corazon del Sol’s estate vineyard. Made up of rock and sand which has eroded from the Andes Mountains over millennia, these soils are extremely deep and well drained, resulting in wines of great complexity, power and finesse. This Malbec is a Selection Massale from 100 year old vineyards in Agrelo & Perdriel.
