Traditionally, people have focused on regions, following names and places like Chateau Latour, Romaine Conte, Pomerol, Côte de Nuits (and it’s sub appellations) etc. Today most buyers and consumers depend on people and publications, making purchases based on a winemaker‘s following, or published scores from wine critics.
"The wine is a single vineyard gem on original rootstock (65-70 year old vines) that gives very flavorful and rich results without being heavy or overtly in your face. This wine dictates a new consciousness of Argentinean Malbec for US consumers - one that is outstanding at the table or with friends alone as an accompaniment to conversation."
– Jon Rimmerman, owner of Garagiste
