Roberto de la Mota, one of Argentina’s
greatest winemakers, helped fashion this
boldly structured Malbec.
What You Need To Know
Malbec’s rich blueberry and
blackberry flavors, light smokiness and soft tannins have made it
incredibly popular in the U.S. Many of the best versions come
from low-yielding vines grown far up in the foothills of the Andes,
in subzones such as the Uco Valley, where chilly nighttime
temperatures keep fruit from becoming too sweetly ripe. Finca
8 is a new boutique Uco Valley estate founded in 2006 by
businessman Hernán Fragueiro Frias, who enlisted Roberto de la
Mota to help make the wines. It was a smart move: De la Mota
is the talent behind some of Argentina’s most acclaimed
wines, including Cheval des Andes, the country’s most famous
Bordeaux-style red. For the Finca 8 Malbec, de la Mota
uses the top barrels of the vintage, and that careful selection
shows in the wine’s deep layers of fruit and spice.
Lush black currant and
Cellar temperature—the bottle should be
cool to the touch.
Rare steaks, thick chops
and roasts, especially with
a bit of spice.
