Wine Description

(2015 Vintage) Free Mix Match Case Shipping! Last year, our team of expert buyers trekked to Argentina looking for the best new Malbec. Unanimously voting the 2015 Ano Cedro Malbec from Altocedro the top wine on a week-long trip, the culmination of the last nine months has this full-bodied red primed to take the #1 spot in our Top 10 for March April. ´╗┐No surprise as the winery is a former Wine Spectator Top 100, and the chief winemaker Karim Mussi Saffie is one of the absolute best in Argentina. Altocedro is synonymous with outstanding La Consulta wines, the top AVA for growing high elevation Malbec, and the vines here go up to 100 years old. Dark fruit flavors give way to firm tannins that provide the wine with a natural balance, nice concentration and a distinctively smooth, lengthy finish.
