Cheval des Andes

Mendoza Malbec Blend 2005

Popped and poured. The 2005 Cheval des Andes pours a deep opaque garnet/purple. Currently throwing some slight sediment. On the nose, the wine is vinous. Lovely black and blue fruits, teriyaki, balsamic, purple flowers, leather, and baking spices. The same on the palate. In total balance. The finish is long, dry with integrated tannins and good acid still. Long. This is really in a gorgeous spot right now. My only bottle of this and so happy I enjoyed it when I did. Enjoy now or over the next 5-10. No decant necessary. — 11 days ago

El Enemigo

Mendoza Cabernet Franc 2017

Mostly Cabernet Franc (92%) with just a touch (8%) of Malbec. Dark ruby color with a light lavender colored rim. Intense aromas of black fruit, black pepper and a whole lot of expensive coffee notes. Dark fruits also dominate the pallet. Hints of menthol, dark chocolate and black pepper as well. Nicely balanced and well structured. — 22 days ago

IRA Mendoza Cabernet Franc 2019

Cab is difficult to get right. The Argentine are making strides with this verity and this is no exception. It’s full bodied with ripe red fruit, rich and smooth with a spicy finish and little to none of that vegetal note. Good pqr, interesting label, rare single varietal, an oddity of sorts. Yup! The perfect wine to enjoy at at my local wine bar. — 9 days ago

I love sitting outside enjoying a good wine though it’s getting way too hot now in Florida. I have to wait until after 7pm

Mendoza Torrontés 2020

Subtle Torrontes! Just the right amount of floral notes to register as aromatic but without going into the bath soaps category — 16 days ago
