WINE SPECTATOR 94 POINTS - "Explosively fruity aromas and flavors of blackberry, dark cherry and plum tart are creamy and filled with rich savory and cooking spice accents. Powerfully structured, showing dark chocolate and mocha on the finish, with hints of dried mint. Drink now through 2025. 5,000 cases made, 2,000 cases imported"

WINE ADVOCATE 94 POINTS - "The 2016 Jose Zuccardi was produced with grapes (90% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon) from Altamira and Gualtallary in the Valle de Uco. This is the continuation of the old Z bottling, but here the wine is aged mostly in 2,500-liter oak vats rather than in smaller barriques. There are herbal notes reminiscent of green tea leaves, spices and berries. The palate is serious and has chalky tannins, as they select grapes from places in the Valle de Uco that have limestone soils. It seems like they have found the way ahead for this wine in 2016; it's fine, precise and elegant."

The Zuccardi family has been a pioneer in the Argentine wine industry for decades. Identified as one of the best winemakers in Argentina by multiple publications, Sebastián Zuccardi has led the team into the Uco Valley where they built a state-of-the art winery, producing some of the country’s best wines. In honor of his father, José Zuccardi, Sebastián has crafted a wine that reflects Jose’s personality. Based on the core varieties of Malbec and an addition of Cabernet Sauvignon, the wine sees a slightly more traditional aging than his other wines in a good proportion of French oak. The resulting wine is structured, powerful, yet balanced and complex - just like dad.
