Buy Bodega Cuarto Dominio Malbec
Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2012 Cuarto Dominio Malbec originated from La Consulta in the Uco Valley. It’s a ripe and well-oaked example with balsamic and spicy aromas and plenty of influence from the elevage (18 months in brand new French oak barrels). In reality the wine has 5% each Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, but as it’s more than 85% Malbec, it’s labeled as such. It feels a little formulaic (expensive, so it has to be oaky and come in a heavy bottle), in a end of the 1990s style. For fans of ripe, oaky reds. It seems to have good stuffing to develop in bottle and absorb the oak, at least to a certain extent. 3,600 bottles produced.  (Aug 2015)

Wine maker notes
We believe that to truly express our terroirs in a wine, we must first get to know our vineyards and to understand our soils. There is no recipe for such winemaking, but my father, Jorge, and I have been taught three, important ingredients: passion, patience and time. Cuarto Dominio is the expression of two very small and unique lots in the San Carlos vineyard, which sits 900 meters above sea level. The difference between these two parcels is the soil composition. Lot A is only 2 hectares and comprised of 70% sand, 15% lime and 15% clay. Lot B is even smaller, just1,4 hectares, and comprised of 90% sand 10% lime and surface stones. Lot A lends ripe plum and chocolate flavors, a very soft and supple mouthfeel with excellent structure and length. Lot B offers more blackberry fruit with a slight earthy mineral tone, notes of spicy black pepper, exceptional concentration and explosive floral aromatic.
