 Where to Buy

2014 Mendoza Reserva Malbec (Best Buy) From Las Compuertas, one of the highest and coolest points in Luján de Cuyo, this malbec shows the depth of flavor that can come from centenarian vines—these were planted in 1908. It's almost bloody in character, with profound red fruit flavors and a supple, tender texture. Pair it now with pork in a Dijon sauce. —Patricio Tapia
