“The best deal in fine wine today is Malbec from Argentina,” says Wine Spectator — and Wine Advocate calls this delicious NEW discovery a “very pretty, well-made Malbec,” rating it an impressive 89 points.
One of Mendoza’s hottest new outfits, Bodega Zemlia wins huge acclaim for its small-batch reds. Hand-harvested in the premium Uco Valley and given eight months in fine oak, Destinado was a gold-medal hit at the Finger Lakes International Wine Competition in New York in 2011, also taking top honors at Vinalies in Paris in 2012. Here’s the full Wine Advocate review:
"The 2010 Zemlia Destinado Malbec is aged in French and American oak and it is the latter the shapes the nose with attractive espresso-lite notes. The palate is medium-bodied with red cherries and straweberry pastille on the citrus-fresh opening. It is well-balanced with vibrant acidity and a pleasing crisp kirsch and raspberry finish. This is a well-made, very pretty Malbec. Drink now-2016."
