Argentina’s Opi Sadler is a seriously talented winemaker. His awe-struck colleagues even nicknamed him ‘The Magician,’ due to his masterful ability to draw out the most magical qualities in grapes.

His Waxed Bat, from the premium (high-altitude) enclave of Mendoza, is always a huge hit with customers, show judges and critics. Decanter World Wine Awards judges once described it as “so thick you could paint with it.”

This beauty has a long history of acclaim, and the 2022 edition has continued the tradition, vintage boasting a gold medal from France’s prestigious Gilbert & Gaillard wine guide. Judges wrote, “Attractive nose of black fruits with an oaky, roasted dimension. Dense, compact and tannic yet harmonious on the palate. The toasty, roasted flavor is there at the finish.”

A blend of berry-rich Shiraz, inky-black Malbec and chocolatey Cabernet, The Waxed Bat delivers a deep, dark glassful, starting with aromas of lush blackberry and notes of violet, smoke, pepper and licorice. On the palate, you’ll find layers of rich black-fruit flavor and oaky complexity. Look for that trademark long, smooth finish. Delicious with a big, juicy cut of steak (and totally unmissable).

As one of our most-loved reds of all time, The Waxed Bat always sells fast. Act quickly to secure your share.
