100% Malbec | Alc: 14.5% – Big and Bold
Luján De Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina

Winemaker’s notes:
The inky 2010 Chakana Estate Malbec displays youthful, fresh aromas of violet and blueberry jam, with vanillin, cedar and dried leaves. Bold on the palate but not over-extracted, this wine has impressive weight that is supported by a good dose of acidity, which keeps it fresh and vibrant. Should drink beautifully for the next six to eight years.

Critical Acclaim:
“The silky tannins, sweet red and black fruits, and the big, perfumed nose of black fruits, flowers and white chocolate are followed by a full-bodied, remarkably concentrated wine that is a steal at this price point. Should drink well for 5-6 years.
An incredible discovery for me, this winery was founded a decade ago and named after the Southern Cross (‘Chakana’ is the local Indian dialect for that constellation). It is located approximately 20 miles south of Mendoza in Agrelo.”
93 Pts – Robert Parker

“(from the property’s best parcel): Bright ruby-red. Pure aromas of redcurrant, black cherry, licorice and minerals lifted by sexy oak. Suave, sweet and fine-grained if a bit youthfully unforthcoming today. Harmonious acidity, an element of minerality and a cool suggestion of herbs energize the middle palate. Finishes broad and long, with sweet tannins and noteworthy finesse. Give this a year or two in the cellar to develop more complexity.” 90 Pts – Stephen Tanzer
