Matervini 2017 Tinto Malbec-Cabernet Franc (Los Chacayes)
This blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Franc delivers the exotic spice notes that Matervini wines tend to show along with desert brush scents. A hard palate is rocky and narrow, while this tastes mostly of black fruits, black coffee and dark spices. There's plenty of fruit and pepper on the finish, and overall this is excellent in a fuller style. Drink through 2026. Michael Schachner

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.
