Wine Advocate 89 points! James Suckling 92 points!

Lunta Malbec comes from the southernmost parcel of the Mendel estate vineyard which lies in Lunlunta, a small district within Mendoza's Lujan de Cuyo department as you approach the Mendoza River. These vines produce a fruitier, more medium-bodied wine as compared to the well-structured Mendel Malbec, and it can be enjoyed at a younger age.

"A bright and focused red with blackberry, blueberry and walnut aromas and flavors. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a fresh finish."-James Suckling, 92 points!

Intense fruity aromas of raspberry, plum, blackberry and cassis immediately greet you upon first sniff. These explosive fruit notes continue on the palate of this medium-bodied, easy to drink Malbec. 65% is aged 12 months in French oak (1/3 new, 1/3 one year, 1/3 two year) and 35% stainless steel. Soft tannins give way to a long finish making this wine enjoyable on its own or paired with pork tenderloin or lamb.
