Rated 94 by Wine Enthusiast
Blackberry aromas are ripe to the point that this wine is showing mildly desiccated scents of prune and raisin. A sense of full ripeness is reaffirmed on a saturated, jammy palate. Roasted flavors of blackberry and cassis finish with spice, tea and chocolate notes. Drink through 2027. (Cellar Selection)

Rated 93 by Wine Spectator
Offers mouthfilling fruitiness backed by fresh acidity, with flavors of red plum, hot stone and huckleberry that are taut and well-framed. Chocolate and cardamom accents show on the finish. Drink now through 2022. 490 cases made, 160 cases imported.

Rated 91 by Wine Advocate
The 2014 Bramare Malbec Zingaretti Vineyard is the third bottling of this old vineyard that is located in Villa Bastías in Tupungato in the Valle de Uco. It fermented in stainless steel tanks and matured in oak barrels until it was bottled unfined and unfiltered 19 months after the harvest. Sixty-five percent of the barrels were new, the majority of them French, with some 5% American. I noticed a slight blurriness in the nose, slightly phenolic, not as focused as others, with some hints of leather and licorice. The palate is medium to full-bodied with a faint dryness. I had the unbottled 2015 next to it, and it was much better, very perfumed and clean, and I'm looking forward to it next time. 5,880 bottles were filled in November 2015.

green grapes

Varietal: Malbec

The heavy purple bunches of Malbec grapes found growing in many New and Old World countries produce some extremely varied and distinctive wines. Their thick skins have a high tannin content, which means the wines produced from them are generally full-bodied and deep red in color. Single variety Malbec wines tend to be extremely plummy in their flavor, packing a strong punch and making them ideal for matching with spicy foods. However, because of their high malic acid content and their powerful tannins, many wineries use these grapes for blending with more mellow varietals, producing wonderfully complex wines which age beautifully and produce remarkable flavors and aromas. Because of this, Malbec holds the high position of being one of the few grape varietals used in the production of Bordeaux wines, widely recognized as being the finest wines on earth.

Region: Cuyo

Argentina's Cuyo region has, for several decades now, been renowned worldwide for the high quality of its fruit-forward and remarkably flavorful wines. The arid region includes such famous provinces as the Mendoza, and wineries in Cuyo often have generations of experience when it comes to making the most of the mineral rich yet arid soils which typify the mountainous landscape. The Desaguadero River and its tributaries form many natural valleys through the Cuyo region, and as such, irrigation has long since provided the dry and dusty vineyard with a fertile and crystal-clear water source, straight from the snowy peaks of the nearby Andes. Although Malbec is the grape varietal most commonly associated with Cuyo, wineries continue to experiment with other varietals there, and the wine industry of Cuyo in Argentina continues to go from strength to strength.

Country: Argentina

As the world's fifth largest producer of wine, after France, Italy, Spain and the United States, Argentina has plenty to offer the international wine market in regards to both quantity and quality. Despite this being the case for several decades now, it has only been since the end of the twentieth century that the Argentinian wine industry has really begun to up their game when it comes to the methods and techniques required to produce world class wines, which are both representative of their country and region of origin, and which stand alone as complex, interesting and delicious wines to drink. As Argentina became a serious contender in the international wine market, wineries previously concerned primarily with high volumes began to change their priorities, and formerly struggling small bodegas and independent wineries began to find success. Nowadays, well crafted wines from smaller vineyards in Argentina are being lauded as some of the finest in the world, and the country is starting to reap the benefits of its heritage, which include some very old vines, and up to four centuries of experience in wine production.
