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.

2015 Tilia

  • Malbec/Syrah
  • Mendoza
  • Argentina
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"This is quite smoky and has notes of cured meat and violets. There's almost 40% Syrah in the blend, and it seems like it has contributed quite strongly to the aromatics of the wine. I looked it up and I had written something very similar last year, which says something about the consistency of the winemaking. Juicy, soft and polished, very drinkable, which seems to be the signature of the Tilia wines. Impressive!"

2013 Catena

  • Malbec
  • Catena Zapata
  • Mendoza
  • Argentina
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"The nose is full of violets and black cherries, and is quite perfumed. The palate has lively acidity that makes it extremely fresh, long, pleasant and easy to dink, and it cleanses your palate with the mineral-driven finish. A textbook Malbec to buy by the case. Drink or keep. This has to be one of the best vintages of this popular Malbec. The production figures are mind-boggling, as there are over one million bottles of this wine, so it should be quite easy to find."

  • Malbec

  • Mendoza
  • 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."
