  • AR-6 is comprised primarily of Malbec, with a small percentage of Cabernet
    Sauvignon in the mix. The unique climate of the Uco Valley in Mendoza
    produces Malbec with concentrated berries that reflect the brilliance, depth,
    and intensity of the neighboring Andes themselves. The Cabernet Sauvignon
    increases complexity and adds dimension, bringing the blend around
    full circle. Despite the twenty-four-hour trip to get there, and the logistics
    involved with getting the wine here, it’s wholly worth the effort to partake
    in this gripping endeavor.

    Winemakers Notes:
    An immediate aromatic mélange of dark plums, ripe briar fruits, rich soil, and
    fir trees present themselves on the nose —in essence, a high mountain cooking
    pit of smoked fruit. On the palate, similar dark fruits carry through and are
    complemented by flavors of dried fruit, fig compote and marmalade. Textured
    on the finish, a long chain of tannins lingers for what seems to be endless with a
    hint of fresh tartness.

    Blend:
    A blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon.

    Maturation:
    Barrel aged 10 months prior to release.

    Alc/Vol: 15.0%

    Accolades:
    “Dave Phinney - is one of the more creative young minds in all of the world’s
    winedom. He is doing things that are far beyond his modest age and deserves to
    be commended for the brilliant individuality/singularity of all of his efforts.”
    -Robert Parker

    “As of now, Dave Phinney might be my “value winemaker of the year” candidate.
    If there are better wines for under $20 a bottle in the world today, please
    share that information with the Wine Advocate.’ –Robert Parker
