J Opi Malbec 2018

91 Points with James Suckling

Opi Sadler’s peers call him ‘The Magician’ thanks to his wizard-like touch with Malbec – we call him our best-selling, most favorite winemaker. His signature Malbec announced him to the world (with great fanfare) after it won a big Decanter trophy a few years back – judges hailed it as “mouthfilling, complex, and an amazing value.”

Here’s the next (delicious) chapter which, like previous releases, is made with grapes lovingly hand harvested from one of Opi’s favorite vineyards in Mendoza’s premium Maipú district. After six months in oak, the wine delivers trademark smoky, black fruit flavor – this is the red to enjoy with a big steak.
