Cafayate, Salta

Piattelli Vineyards

Reserve High Altitude Malbec 2019

Kinda a dramatic label. Excellent rendering of rocks. Very dark color. Kind of that classic deep maroon of the beefy Malbecs. Smells dense and juicy. Berry danish. Or is that a blueberry 🫐 donut? Flavors are chewy and complex. Spice with a hint bitter skins of a balanced plum. Has plenty of sagebrush and fall dry leaves. Balanced, full bodied and woodsy. This is a very nice Malbec. Maybe it’s the altitude. — a month ago

Serie A Salta Torrontés

We love this crisp but smooth Torrentes! Strong grapefruit notes. Maybe some underlying pineapple notes as well. We want more! — 2 months ago

Matervini

Alteza Valle de Cafayete Malbec 2016

Harvested from a 1.5 acre vineyard at 7200 feet. Yield: 1.6 tons per acre. 178 cases made. 13.5%. Fruit is not the center but the adornment. But it’s character is centered on minerality and structure. — 5 months ago

No fool here… this needed to open up before it tasted right. I was a bit worried we had a bad bottle.

Bodega Tacuil

Doña Ascension Red Blend 2019

"The Cabernet adds a dash of spice and elegance to the mix, softening the extreme altitude malbec's tannin teeth. Beauty taming the beast." An amazing, high altitude, Argentinian rare find from the Bonner's wine club. — a month ago
