Salta, little known outside Argentina but heavily touristed by the Argentines themselves, is famous for its resorts and mountain air. It also produces a Malbec unlike any other: there is something about the 5000+ foot elevations and skinny soils that offer a Malbec that is less blowsy and generous than what we see from Mendoza. Instead, what we get are wines of structure, with equal measures of power and finesse.
