The long awaited third release of our Argentinean blend is here. AR-5 is comprised primarily of Malbec, with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the mix. The unique climate of the Uco Valley in Mendoza produces Malbec with concentrated berries that reflect the brilliance, depth, and intensity of the neighboring Andes themselves. The Cabernet Sauvignon increases complexity and adds dimension, bringing the blend around full circle. Despite the twenty-four-hour trip to get there, and the logistics involved with getting the wine here, it’s wholly worth the effort to partake in this gripping endeavor.

Accolades

Dave Phinney's Locations project is off to a rousing start with this delicious blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. It's a lively glass that's red fruit focused, with red currant, plum, black cherry and fall spice, with supple tannins, good grip and fine integration of flavors through the long finish. A great value that's worth locating. A Platinum Award winner at the 2016 Sommelier Challenge International Wine Competition.
