Some people feel that Malbec may be the finest varietal grown in Argentina. The luscious, intense fruit aromas that hint of ripe plum, cherries and berries give an initial indication of why this grape variety is becoming a favorite. The flavours are similar to the aromas with a massive mouth feel that is soft and silky with a long finish.
90 Points - Int'l Value Wine Awards, Category Champion - This wine delivers both the finesse and complexity that is generally associated with a higher price tag. San Rafael is fairly south of Mendoza proper, but at more than 700 metres above sea level, the grapes ripen and develop just fine! Perfumed and pretty, with raspberries, currants and a host of warm baking spices, this one isn’t going to stain your teeth in the first few sips which should be reason enough to revisit this often-dismissed and overlooked varietal. - Kurtis Kolt

A nice, juicy steak would be mouthwatering with this big Malbec.
