Notes from the Winemaker:

In the glass, this Malbec reveals deep, dark magenta colors and aromas of violets and black plums. Round, well-structured tannins are integrated into the ripe plum, blueberry, morello cherry and chocolate notes. Hints of wood smoke and caramel linger throughout the lengthy finish. This is an ideal wine to accompany a variety of meats from the grill.

The Pulenta family has been a prominent and respected force in Argentine viticulture for three generations. Sons of well-known winegrower Antonio Pulenta, and descendants of Italian immigrants, Eduardo and Hugo Pulenta founded Pulenta Estate in 2002. The vineyards are estate-owned and farmed for high quality and limited yields. Their extensive holdings in the Agrelo area of Lujan de Cuyo have allowed them to create a broad portfolio that includes sauvignon blanc, pinot gris, chardonnay and malbec rose; merlot, cabernet franc, malbec and cabernet sauvignon in several tiers and even a late harvest red blend.


Ratings & Reviews

90 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Pulenta Estate’s 2010 La Flor Malbec (100%) spent 6 months in French oak. It offers up an inviting nose of cedar, spice box, lavender, earthy minerals, and black cherry. This sets the stage for a savory, ripe, layered offering that over-delivers in a big way. Drink this outstanding value over the next 3-4 years.

Wine Enthusiast Magazine
(2008 vintage):
"Bold and earthy wine, with aromas of fine rubber, balsam wood, forest floor, spice and ripe black fruit. It’s thick as it rolls over the palate, and the wild berry, herb and pepper flavors fit the wine’s physique and profile. Long and fairly deep on the finish; drink now through 2011.  — M.S.  (12/31/2009)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (2008 vintage):
"Pulenta Estate’s 2008 La Flor Malbec was aged for 6 months in French oak. Purple-colored, it has an alluring perfume of spice box, incense, and black cherry. Sweetly-fruited, ripe, and layered on the palate, this tasty effort is nicely balanced and ready for prime-time drinking." - Jay Miller (Aug 2009)
