Buy O. Fournier Malbec Tempranillo Urban Uco
The wine offers compelling aromas of red fruits, spices and vanilla. Well-balanced with juicy, silky tannins on the finish.
Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2012 Urban Uco Tempranillo Malbec is an equal blend of each variety aged for three months in used oak barrels. It has a lifted, floral bouquet with dark cherries, mulberry and a touch of black currant pastilles. The palate is medium-bodied with firm, slightly dusty tannins. It is very harmonious and fresh with vibrant blackberry, bilberry and crushed stone. It is a little abrupt on the finish, but hopefully it will gain more persistency with bottle age. Drink now-2016.  (Oct 2012)

Founded in 2000 by Spanish entrepreneur Jose Manual Ortega Gil-Fournier, Bodegas y Vinedos O. Fournier is comprised of estate vineyards in Argentina’s Uco Valley, Chile’s Maule and San Antonio Valleys and Spain’s Ribera del Duero region. They produce a range of high quality wines from superior vineyard sites using a blend of traditional and modern technology. Chief Winemaker Jose Spisso oversees the winemaking for all three estates. O. Fournier produces four different levels of wine differentiated by their origins, aging regimens, styles and price points. The Urban range presents fresh, modern, fruit-driven wines aged in oak barrels for three months. The B Crux (Argentina), Centauri (Chile) and Spiga (Spain) wines are aged 12 months in new and first use barrels and 6-12 months in bottle. The Alfa Crux (Argentina), Alfa Centauri (Chile) and Alfa Spiga (Spain) wines are aged for approximately 18 months in new barrels and 12 months in bottle. The top tier wines, labeled simply as O. Fournier, are a special selection produced only in exceptional vintages and in very small quantities. O. Fournier owns three estate vineyards in Argentina located nine miles from the base of the Andes Mountains Finca Santa Sofia, Finca San Manuel and Finca San Jose. A total of 232 acres are planted to vines on well draining rocky and sandy soils. Finca Santa Sofia (182 acres) is planted to Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Malbec, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Verdot and Gewurztraminer. With the exception of Malbec, the vines originate from France and Italy and were grafted onto American rootstock. They are planted in the traditional bush vine method in order to ensure lower yields, more concentrated aromas and greater structure. Finca San Manuel (19 acres) is planted with Tempranillo and Malbec. Finca San Jose (17 acres) is planted to Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec. Winemaker Ramiro Balliro is assisted by Jose Spisso, Head Winemaker for O. Fournier.
Technical notes
Tempranillo (50%) and Malbec (50%) fermented for 12 days in stainless steel and matured for three months in oak barrels.
