Region: Mendoza, Argentina
Varietal: 100 percent Malbec
Production: 2,000 cases
Alcohol: 14.5 percent
Tasting Notes: Many of the most highly rated Malbecs, including this Viña Alicia offering, come from Luján de Cuyo. Designated as Mendoza’s first appellation in 1993, Luján de Cuyo is a cool, high altitude region in the foothills of the Andes. The 2009 Las Compuertas Malbec is a dense, full-bodied and unfiltered wine. It features dark, earthy flavors such as blackberry, fig and mocha with hints of sweet baking spice on the finish. Firm tannins provide depth and structure.
Food Pairings: steak, pork loin, sausage
