Founded in 2007, Zorzal is devoted to the production of luxury wines. The highest winery in Mendoza, Zorzal sits on a 70 hectare parcel (175 acres) of prime land in the heart of one of the finest wine growing regions in the world, the Uco Valley, 130 miles south of the city of Mendoza. Zorzal is a collaboration of Argentine owners and Canadian investors. They age their wines in cement eggs to preserve the purity, nerve, intensity, potency, life and electricity of the wines. The convex shape of the concrete eggs also encourages natural lees suspension to fill out the body of the wine and soften the acidity.
94 Points Robert Parker & 93 Points Wine Enthusiast... This red delivers a full blast of berry fruit aromas along with savoury notes of beef stew and fine herbs. Like the nose, this tastes herbal and savoury. In terms of feel, it is solid in stature but brightened by bold acidity. Drink through 2024.
