"Maipe fashions reds and whites that sell for a song." - Robert Parker
The Maipe Malbec Reserve is made from 100% hand-selected Malbec from the best parcels of the estate. The grapes are carefully chosen and fermented in small lots to preserve the vineyard identity.
Maipe was the Lord of the Winds for the ancient Andean people. Argentineans still invoke his name to clear the skies after a heavy rain or to temper the summer heat. These wines, children of the Sun and the Winds, are produced from grapes grown at the foothills of the Andes Mountains at an altitude of 3,000 feet above sea level. The intense color and aromas capture the expression of the soils that gave them birth.

"The 2010 Malbec Reserve spent 12 months in French oak. Cedar, Asian spices, incense, cherry cola, and assorted black fruits set the stage for a spicy, concentrated, layered Malbec that offers excellent value."
