This Argentinean Malbec comes from
the vast Mendoza estate of Dieter Meier, a Swiss musician and
all-around renaissance guy who was the front man for the 1980s
electronic music group Yellow (whose hit song “Oh Yeah”
unforgettably soundtracked Ferris Bueller’s Day Off). He’s also
a silver-maned, ascot-wearing conceptual artist, professional
poker player, restaurateur, cattle rancher and, obviously, vintner.
Ojo de Agua, his 2,200-acre Argentinean estate, is located in
Agrelo Alto, a high Mendoza subzone where grapes develop thick
skins and complex flavors. Farmed organically, those grapes give
the Puro Malbec lovely depth to its rich black-fruit notes.

Lush and pure, with layers of
black plum and mocha.
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
Anything from the grill,
such as burgers, ribs,
sausages, steaks and chops.
