For years, The Wine Buyer has been singing the praises of Patagonia. On the cusp on becoming the next great wine region, they've attracted the best winemakers and innovators to this breathtaking part of Argentina. The third winery project for powerhouse Bodega Tapiz, the 2021 marks the sixth vintage for the Wapisa Malbec. One that has the fingerprints of master winemaker Jean Claude Berrouet. Former winemaker at Chateau Petrus and Dominus, it's remarkable that you can obtain a bottle of wine with this pedigree. (His last vintage of Petrus is currently selling for $3,000!) Everything you want in an everyday, full-bodied red. Vivid and complex with a layered palate and a long juicy finish. Under 14% alcohol, which makes it a perfect pairing for food, and a crowd pleasing option.
"Spiced ripe blackberries, dark chocolate and nutmeg with an attractive balsamic edge that delivers a hint of porcini mushroom. Quite juicy and plump on the medium- to full-bodied palate, with lots of fruit rounded by sleek, fine-grained tannins. Quite a long finish." James Suckling, 92 Points
