Destinado Malbec 2014

(1 review) Write a Review

“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."

    Destinado is certainly a fan favorite in our house when it comes to malbecs. Tastes better than other cabs I've had from the region. And Destinado is well deserving of the 89 points from Wine Advocate.
