El Esteco 2013 Chañar Punco Red (Calchaquí Valley)

Editors' Choice

This single-vineyard Malbec blend from vineyards that sit at 7,800 feet smells dark, grilled and rubbery, but also meaty and full of fruit. A full, lush palate avoids fierceness and lays on the richness. Toasty, lightly herbal berry and plum flavors are highly appealing. The wine tastes of herbs, salted meat and spices on a complex finish. Drink through 2024. Michael Schachner
