Product Overview

Tapiz is Spanish for "tapestry," as in the tapestry between the wine's high-altitude fruit and oak. The wine is called Black Tears because of the amazing color intensity. The 2015 Tapiz Black Tears Malbec shows flavors and aromas reminiscent of ripe red fruits, dried plums, figs, fruits compote, and jams. The nose also offers very subtle floral and menthol notes. 18 months in new French oak provides notes of dark chocolate and roasted coffee to match the sweet, ripe tannins.

Varietal Composition: 100% Malbec
Appellation: Uco Valley, Mendoza
Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels, 100% new, then aged in bottle for at least 12 months prior to release

92 Points - Wine Spectator
"Luscious and well-spiced, with concentrated raspberry and wild cherry flavors backed by vibrant acidity. Tobacco leaf accents on the savory finish. Drink now through 2025. 1,000 cases imported." -KM, 12/31/20

92 Points - Wine Advocate
"I found the 2015 Black Tears Malbec to be very classical and proportioned, floral, aromatic and fresh. It comes from the higher-altitude vineyards in San Pablo where the soils are shallow and have lots of stones. It matured in new and second use French oak barrels for 18 months (down from 24 in the previous vintage) and has integrated oak. It has ripe fruit without excess and is neatly balanced by very good acidity. It's powerful and elegant, nicely textured. It feels a little riper after a long time in the glass. 18,000 bottles were filled in February 2018." -LG, 3/31/21
