South American Red Wine Rated 90+ Points For Every Budget

A unique combination of old world and new world flavor profiles make South American red wine distinctive. When we speak of 90+ point rated South American Red Wine, the first places that come to mind are usually Argentina and Chile. Wines used to be produced in Argentina to be drunk at home and the style tended to be rustic and easy drinking. As Argentinian wine potential was realized, the wines took on a more evolved style and began making world class wines in both the high end and affordable Argentinian red wines. Shop our selection to find your favorite South American Red Wine.  (Read More)

Unlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. Mendoza is the region that is best known and both Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec wine play large roles in the success of Argentinian wine. Quite a few wineries in Chile were founded by large French wine companies. Seeing the potential of the country, vineyards were bought and planted by these French. The most recognized region in Chile is Maipo (My-poh) known for reds like Merlot and Carmenere wine. Whether your preferred South American Red Wine in Argentina or Chile, browse our 90+ point rated South American Red Wine and read expert descriptions about each bottle.

  • Argentina
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Bright medium ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, cassis and violet, complemented by sexy oak tones of smoke and spices. Plush and velvety, conveying lovely sweetness and lift to its flavors of dark berries and spices; a bit more jammy and open-knit than the saltier Natural blend. This fine-grained, concentrated wine, reportedly Argentina's most successful $20 red blend in the U.S., finishes with suave, firm tannins and very good length."

The palate is juicy and soft with clean flavors that are easy to drink. The nose grows in the glass to become more floral. Delicious Malbec."

"This is co-fermented with a little Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot. It has notes of blackberries, violets, damsons, scorched earth and some licorice. It's powerful and fleshy, with very fine tannins, great balance and freshness. A structured and layered Malbec that is still a baby and that should develop more complexity with time in bottle."

2013 Tikal

  • Malbec
  • Amorio
  • Mendoza
  • Argentina
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"A blend of Malbec with 40% Cabernet Franc from their biodynamically-farmed estate vineyards in Vista Flores, in the Valle de Uco. I think the two varieties work very nicely together. There is great balance here and a mixture of peppery notes and floral aromas, very balanced and fresh. Here you have a nice texture and a combination of the rounder tannins from the Malbec and the sharper, more austere ones from Cabernet Franc."
