On September 27, 2018 Alpasion was not only listed one of the top affordable Malbec wines but was also give 91 points from Wine Spectator. The article featured in the members area of Wine Spector, written by Aaron Romano states the following:
ALPASIÓN Grand Malbec, Uco Valley 2015 Score: 91 | $28 WS Review: Big and ripe, with concentrated dark plum, cherry and currant flavors that are unctuous and well-structured. Offers polished tannins and plenty of creaminess on the rich and chocolaty finish. Drink now through 2024. 20,000 cases imported.—Kim Marcus
Why It’s of Note: Alpasión started when a bunch of friends built a luxury vacation rental on a 148-acre vineyard in the high-altitude Uco Valley subregion of Mendoza. Karim Mussi Saffie of Altocedro makes the wines.
