"Chakana’s wines are getting better with every vintage under winemaker Gabriel Bloise." - Tim Atkin, Argentina Special Report
Warm up with these juicy, 90+ point reds from Argentina!
2015 Chakana Estate Red Blend - "A 60/40 blend of malbec and cabernet sauvignon, this wine's fruit gains its freshness and floral notes from a high-altitude, cool-climate site. Texturally round, it had a lovely, creamy texture, with spices all over the palate. A charming flowery finish adds complexity. Think of grilled pork tenderloin to go with it." - Wine & Spirits Magazine (February 2017), 92 pts
2014 Chakana Estate Malbec - "...the nose is ripe and fruit-driven, with aromas of dark cherries and plums plus a subdued minerality and a touch of spices. Most noticeable is the really well-integrated oak (only founder and well-seasoned barrels are used for this wine). The palate is juicy, fresh and has good balance with a somewhat bittersweet finish that is attractive and commercial. This is a great expression of fresh and elegant Malbec from Altamira at a very attractive price point." - The Wine Advocate (Issue #220, August 2015), 91 pts

2015 Maipe Reserve Malbec - "A red with lots of dried fruit and spices follow through to a medium to full body, silky tannins and a fresh finish. Drink now."
