Among The Very Best Wines In The Store $20-30

2008 Vina Alicia Malbec Las Compuertas
Free Shipping on All Orders of Six or More Bottles

One of our top new arrivals in the store in the $20-30 range is the 2008 Vina Alicia Las Compuertas Malbec from the Lujan de Cuyo in Argentina.

The Las Compuertas Malbec is sourced from vines that are up to 150 years old. It spends twelve months in new French oak. There are only 700 cases produced of this micro cuvee which sounds more like the production numbers of a cult California wine, instead of an Argentinean wine selling for $25.

Vina Alicia Las Compuertas Malbec is a blockbuster. Great concentration and structure with lots of blackberries on the mid-palate and layers and layers of cassis fruit on the long finish.

The price is just $23.88 per bottle on sale, with Free Shipping on six or more bottles!

Jay Miller Wine Advocate 92 Points-- The 2008 Malbec (100%) spent 12 months in new French oak before bottling without fining or filtration. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports a nose of wood smoke, Asian spices, incense, lavender, and black cherry. Concentrated and intense on the palate with layers of fruit and excellent volume, this mouth-filling effort will evolve for several years and provide peak drinking from 2012 to 2020.

Free Shipping on 6 or More
