Maipe 2012 Malbec Reserve, Mendoza, Chakana Wines
Maipe is produced in a state-of-the-art winery, Chakana winery, founded by Juan Pelizzatti in 2002. Juan did not know it at the time but the company was founded on the same day the Chakana was celebrated on the Andes highlands; the day that the Southern Cross (the Chakana for the Inca people) becomes vertical in the night Andean sky. After tweeting about the incredible value of the Maipe wines, Robert Parker scored this 91 points saying "The same can be said for the 2012 Malbec Reserve, a 100% hand-harvested Malbec from the estate’s finest vineyard parcels. Aged 12 months in French oak, it possesses a softer style than the Cabernet Sauvignon with more minerality as well as lots of blackberry, white chocolate, incense and graphite characteristics. Deep ruby/purple-hued, rich and full-bodied, it is a full-throttle, stunning Malbec to drink over the next 4-5 years.

    Comments about Maipe 2012 Malbec Reserve, Mendoza, Chakana Wines:

    Tons of character and value found in this well structured Malbec from start to finish. Enticing blackberry, chocolate and minerality on the nose leading to a lush yet full bodied palate loaded with dark concentrated fruit. The finish is long, dry and fruit filled so make sure to have plenty available for the summer BBQ season. You could even lay this one down for a few years and it will only improve.

    • Pairs Well With:
    • Beef, Game
