Algodon Wine Estates’ 2004 Malbec scored 90 points out of 100 in a recent tasting conducted by Anthony Dias Blue, one of the most influential wine personalities in the United States. The ranking is featured in the July issue of The Tasting Panel, a leading monthly industry publication of which Dias Blue is Editor in Chief. Each month, Dias Blue tastes over 500 wines and features his top picks in the magazine.
“Mr. Dias Blue’s high ranking is an honor and great achievement, serving as testament to our hard work and commitment to produce the utmost in quality,” says Algodon winemaker Mauro Nosenzo. Algodon Wines are produced under the direction of Camilo Aldao, a member of one of Argentina’s oldest winemaking families, and also with the recommendation of Wine Master Anthony Foster and accomplished wine connoisseur Lee Lacy.
“We are thrilled with this rating and believe it is only the beginning. In addition to this great Malbec, we are also producing wonderful Bonarda and Chardonnay,” says Scott Mathis, Chairman of DPEC Partners and InvestProperty Group (IPG), the venture capital firm backing Algodon Wine Estates. “In December 2008 our Cabernet Sauvignon won the “Best Buy” distinction in a tasting conducted by Wines of Argentina, and we are confident there will be many more such accolades.”
