About This Wine

It’s interesting how a grape variety can fare so differently in different environments.

Take, for instance, the phylloxera epidemic that hit the Bordeaux appellation of France. After that, the Malbec variety was grafted onto vigorous rootstocks, but the grapes had difficulty attaining full ripeness. As a result, Malbec was replaced by Merlot in many blends.

But when Malbec arrived in South America around 1850, it easily adapted to the country’s various wine-producing areas, and really thrived at high altitudes. Today, Chile produces some amazing wines with Malbec grapes, including those grown in the country’s Central Valley.

At its best, Malbec is of a deep, dense and dark purple color — exactly like the 2016 Malbec from Las Rozas. Also like this wine, it has a great body and a lush texture. That means it can be savored solo, or enjoyed with stews or grilled meats. Concentrated and elegant, Las Rozas is a benchmark Chilean Malbec.

About Malbec

A midseason ripener, it can bring very deep color, ample tannin, and a particular plum-like flavor component to add complexity to claret blends.

    Although I like to consider myself impartial when it comes to wine. Hands down Malbec is one of my favorites, and the 2016 Chilian Las Rozas Central Valle Melbec is a delightful wine. Infact I enjoyed a similar Chili Central Valley Melbec at BJ restaurant the other day while having lunch with a friend.

    Very drinkable Malbec. It did not have the bracing acidity of some Malbecs and thus the fruit came through. Tannins were mild.
