Welcome to Patagonia, Argentina’s extreme southern frontier. Here, near the edge of the earth, icy-cold Antarctic winds produce uniquely tight clusters of tiny, thick-skinned grapes – and reds that are big on flavor, deep color and intense freshness. We (and the hundreds of customers who've named this Patagonia red among their Favorites) aren't the only fans of this cool region. "Something about the area seems to create wines that deliver pure, beautifully delineated fruit to your palate with the roll-off-the-fingertip ease of a layup by a basketball pro," says Wine Spectator's Matt Kramer.
The Schroeder family has braved the elements in Patagonia since 1927, winning regular gold medals and 90-plus Wine Advocate scores for wines “reminiscent of top quality Bordeaux” … wines “master sommeliers should love.” In a region made up of small, quality-focused wineries, the Schroeders stand out for the distinctiveness and consistently first-rate quality of their handiwork. This acclaimed, oak-aged signature Malbec is packed with dark fruit, lifted by a food-friendly, savory edge and a seriously fresh character. Just wait until you taste it.
The concentrated, spicy black-fruit flavors will perfectly complement your favorite steak (Malbec’s classic pairing), but this red's intense freshness also makes it an ideal partner for lighter meats like duck or game, or lentil-driven vegetarian dishes.
As with previous, best-selling vintages of this handcrafted, boutique red, we have a limited quantity. Early orders are recommended.
