San Lucas Malbec Reserva 2014
Mendoza, Argentina

The Magnificent Seven(1960)
Currently There Is No Schedule Available Here.

Before seeing the 2016 remake, be sure to pour a glass of this smoky Argentine Malbec and watch the classic version of The Magnificent Seven (itself a remake of Kurosawa's Seven Samurai). The concentrated fruit and spicy oak flavors match the incredible gathering of Hollywood talent in this great Western. Yul Brynner, Eli Wallach and Steve McQueen are the headliners whose spirit, like this red grape, will be forever popular.

THE WINE

Argentina's signature grape, Malbec, is hotter than ever. That's why we included this smoky, blackberry-loaded stunner in your latest case. It’s made at the historic Pascual Toso estate, which hit new quality heights when they brought in Napa legend Paul Hobbs to work with new chief winemaker, Felipe Stahlschmidt (below). Case in point: the 2013 release of this rich Reserva won silver at the 2014 Wines of Argentina Awards. Here's the equally delicious 2014. Aged for 12 months in the finest French and American oak barrels, San Lucas has a ripe, fruity character that goes perfectly with grilled skirt steaks, beef kebabs and more.

A WINNING TEAM

The decision to sign up acclaimed Napa Valley expert Paul Hobbs as a consultant paid off when Pascual Toso scooped Best Argentine Producer at London’s 2007 International Wine & Spirit Competition. No easy feat, considering all the stiff competition from Felipe’s Malbec-making countrymen. This state-of-the-art winery continues to impress us, our customers and critics.

THE ESTATE

Pascual Toso came to Mendoza from Piedmont, Italy in the 1880s and fell in love with what the region offers. He established his estate, Las Barrancas ('small canyons') in stunning Maipú, within the Mendoza River highlands. A half-hour drive southeast of Mendoza’s city center, it's a vine-growing heaven, characterized by coveted alluvial soils and an ideal climate.

WITH FOOD

Mendoza’s high-altitude vineyards produce wines of concentrated flavors with a lovely freshness. Malbec's reputation as a grape tailor-made for steak is reinforced by this fine Reserva – if steak and chimichurri aren’t your thing, try rich game dishes like venison or bison. It also goes well with firm, aged cheeses like Cheddar, Gouda or Parmesan.
