Malbec is the big red news story of our time – rising from obscurity to become the talk of wine (and steak) lovers everywhere. Though originally from France (where it was once more popular in Bordeaux than Cabernet Sauvignon), Malbec has really made a home for itself in Argentina – and this smooth example from the Zuccardi family proves it.

The Zuccardi estate has been synonymous with primo quality in Mendoza (Argentina’s wine capital) for over 50 years. Headed by second-generation José and his talented son Sebastián, the Zuccardi family are “one of the top names in Argentine wine,” writes The Wine Advocate. So, as you might imagine, they know a thing or two about crafting world-class Malbec.

José and Sebastián made this limited-edition Malbec from grapes grown in their prime-sited mountain vineyards. Back in the cellar, time in fine oak imparts toasty vanilla and mocha notes to the wine’s ripe blueberry and fig flavors. An instant classic that’s sure to be the talk of your dinner table – especially alongside a juicy cut of steak.

Newsflash: José and Sebastián crafted this velvety exclusive in very limited quantities. Order your case before our thirsty Malbec fans snag them all.
