Marchiori & Barraud 2022 Malbec

$ 2399 $ 2799

Andrea Marchiori and Luis Barraud come from families with long winemaking traditions. They met while studying winemaking in Mendoza and together they pursued advanced studies at UC Davis before returning to Argentina. 

After collaborating on a number of projects for other wineries, including more than a decade at Vina Cobos with Paul Hobbs, Luis and Andrea have finally accomplished their dream of making their own wine. They work with Andrea's family-owned Marchiori Vineyard (that's the gorgeous vista pictured above), located in the Perdriel area of Lujan de Cuyo in Mendoza.

Everything the couple makes is absolutely delicious and both of their wines we poured at Friday's wine tasting (Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay) were big hits. As fantastic as those wines are, it is their Malbecs that they are known for. Their "regular" Mendoza Malbec is a blend of fruit from the Las Pintadas (Lujan de Cuyo) & La Esperanza Vineyards (Uco Valley).

Intense, bright red, violet at the rim. The nose is complex, elegant and very intense. The wine shows a perfect combination of fresh red fruit such as black cherries, raspberries and blackberries. Spice touches and licorice hints contribute complexity. The ageing in French oak masterfully integrates subtle vanilla and caramel nuances. Pleasant attack. The aromas on the palate are harmonious and persistent. It is a balanced, refreshing and very easy-to-drink wine which boasts a lingering finish.
