For years I have been waiting for this moment. I have tasted hundreds of Malbecs. Many have been very good, but always very good from a technical standpoint. I had no complaints. In the top wines I have had, concentration was there, as well as pepper and spice complexity. The oak was well integrated in top examples. Yet, I still had found nothing to shake my soul until I tried the wines from Bodega Weinert. Since discovering these wines, I have asked around. Why hadn't I heard of Weinert? It seems that after the Malbec boom of the mid to late 2000s, Weinert's traditional style was swept into history by larger, more flashy producers.  I have since found that within the sommelier community those who know the wines alternatingly describe them as either "The Musar of Argentina" and the "Lopez de Heredia of Argentina". High praise! This traditionally made Malbec-Cabernet-Merlot blend had me running around the building with excitement. The wine is fermented old cement vats, and then matured in various sizes of neutral Slovenian and French oak barrels. Aging for the reds typically lasts 3-4 years in barrel (remind you much of Lopez?!), with some of the top wines seeing nearly two decades in barrel before release. The traditional winemaking regimen here gives a wine with ripe, mulled fruit, but laced with a delicious mushroom-y earthiness. The Cabernet Sauvignon expresses itself perfectly with a subtle pine-y herbaceous note that threads the mid-palate and aromatics of the wine. The immediate and enthusiastic comment from the sommelier who tasted it with me was "This could be my new house wine. I want this every night." Stock up and enjoy.
