Wine Critic Reviews:

The 2005 Yacochuya (100% Malbec) spent 18 months in new French oak. It is a saturated opaque purple color with a brooding bouquet of mineral, wood smoke, lavender, incense, black cherry, and plum. Voluptuous and powerful on the palate, the wine is dense, rich, succulent, and impeccably balanced... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Country Argentina: Argentina is a beautiful place when it comes to wine. The climate conditions in its most important sub-regions help stave off insects, molds, fungi, and other problems that would impede production. This allows the winemakers to hold off on pesticides and similar tools, making the wines that much more delicious and compelling. It's definitely possible to identify various European influences on the region's winemaking style, but what matters most is the big picture. Once you start exploring Argentine wines, it's hard to stop, because there's so much to discover. Start your journey, and learn why wine is considered Argentina's national liquor.

Type of Wine Argentina Red: If there were ever a single word that could perfectly describe fine Argentinian wines, it would be "purity." Red wine lovers could easily become spoiled for choice when that choice involves varietals such as Malbec or Tempranillo. With a complete dedication to a given grape, each bottle tells a compelling story, so have a seat and listen.
Varietal Malbec: Malbec is something of an oddity among red wine grape varietals. It has traditionally been considered difficult to grow and implement in France, a challenging choice that often doesn't pay off. However, once it was brought over to Argentina, the world began to realize how mind-shatteringly appealing it can be. Nowadays, Malbec wines stand toe to toe with the greatest wines of the planet as Argentina's most accomplished red wine varietal.
