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.
