Jose Zuccardi 2013 Malbec 1.5L

$ 89.99

Winemaker Notes

Red-violet color, intense and profound. Delicate aromas of dark fruits like blueberries, cassis, and blackberries with subtle notes of anise and flowers. In the background, aromas from the oak barrels like cloves, tobacco and spices surface. The 2013 Zeta shows a solid structure with firm, mature tannins. The acidity makes the wine vivacious and fresh.

Blend: 87% Malbec, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon

Critical Acclaim

JS 92
James Suckling
A serious red with layers of blackberry, wet earth and stone character. Flowers too. Full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Black pepper and spice on the finish. Drink.
WS 92
Wine Spectator

Suave and finely textured, with an engaging minerality to the dark plum, red currant and dried blackberry flavors, supported by firm tannins and acidity. The savory finish has hints of pepper and plenty of cedary spice accents. Drink now through 2024.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
A crisp, focused nose consisting of lemon peel, cedar, dried cheese, blackberry and cassis aromas is encouraging. This Malbec (with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon) is mouth-filling and tight, with firm tannins. Pointed salty flavors of black plum and berry fruits finish with integrated spice and cocoa notes. Drink now through 2024—the longer this sits, the less aggressive and choppy it'll be.
