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.

2014 Luca

  • Malbec
  • Paraje Altamira
  • Uco Valley
  • Argentina
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"There is a big jump in quality from the 2013 to the 2014 Malbec Paraje Altamira. There is much more freshness here, the fruit is a mixture of red and black and there are violets and some spices. 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."

2013 Zaha

  • Malbec
  • Toko Vineyard
  • Mendoza
  • Argentina
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"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."

2013 Bramare

  • Malbec
  • Valle de Uco
  • Argentina
  • Red
  • 750 ml

"Bright full ruby. At once higher-pitched and a bit more subdued than the Luján de Cuyo Malbec, offering scents of currant, mocha and meat. Suave, plush, broad and sweet on the palate, with berry flavors complicated by subtle spices. Finishes with a fine dusting of tannins and excellent length, if not quite the verve or lingering sweetness of the Luján de Cuyo example."

"Pure, ripe blackberry aromas are heady, toasty and crisp like burnt bread crust. This Malbec has a profound, drawing mouthfeel defined by full extraction and muscular tannins. Savory flavors of blackberry and roasted plum end with depth, focus and welcome freshness. Drink through 2023."
