Vaglio Temple Malbec

2018 Vaglio Temple Malbec....$14.99
This is always a delicious red with lots of crushed-berry and walnut character. Full-bodied, dense and juicy. Lots of old-vine character. Succulent. Drink now.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling

2017 Vaglio Chacra Malbec....$14.99
This is full-bodied and chunky with very pretty fruit and dense tannins. Yet, it’s transparent and real. Wet earth, dark fruit and hints of black pepper. Drink or hold.
Rated 93/100 James Suckling
The 2017 Chacra is a Malbec from Agrelo. It fermented in concrete and matured in oak barrels but with just a subtle influence of the élevage, with a focus on the texture and the varietal character, with some violets and ripe berries and fine-grained tannins. 6,000 bottles produced.
Rated 90/100 The Wine Advocate
