Cara Sur 2018 Finca Maggio Red (Valle de Calingasta)
Several years ago when this Malbec blend from San Juan emerged, the wine was much lighter and less serious and complex than this. However, now it's more intense, severe and complex. The nose offers cola, cherry, peppery spice and rough herbal notes, while the palate is rubbing and tannic. Raspberry, red plum and currant flavors shorten up on a dry finish. Drink through 2024.

All tastings reported in the Buying Guide are performed blind. Typically, products are tasted in peer-group flights of from 5-8 samples. Reviewers may know general information about a flight to provide context—vintage, variety or appellation—but never the producer or retail price of any given selection. When possible, products considered flawed or uncustomary are retasted.
