Vintages Wine Panel: Don Martin Alsina founded La Chamiza estate in 1918 to fulfill his dream of raising Polo horses. Polo, incidentally, is immensely popular in Argentina. Today, La Chamiza is raising vines rather than horses, and this flagship Malbec, sourced from century-old vines, is a true thoroughbred. Aged for 12 months in French oak and another year in bottle, it is bursting with ripe red and black fruits as well as notes of mocha, supported by firm but elegant tannins. A Silver Medal winner at the 2008 International Wine & Spirits Competition in London. My note: A top-notch Malbec with that magic combination of Old World structure, balance and elegance and New World fruit, power and depth. Full-bodied with incredible length. Get in the groove for dinner with this wine.

Malbec food pairings: rack of lamb, stew, hamburgers, pizza, pork cooked in prunes.
