Anam Cara

Nicholas Estate Vineyard Riesling 2019

Words “Anam Cara” are Celtic for “friend of my soul.” Nick and Sheila have made wines since planting grapes in 2001. Pale lemon with aromatic aromas of ripe tropical, stone & citrus fruits. On the palate tart apple and melon flavors, with a crisp citrus tang. Medium+ finish, vivid acidity with rich ending. Drinking well now. Nice value. — 11 days ago

Pierre Péters

Cuvée de Réserve Brut Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay

We had a taste test among 4 Champagnes, this Pierre Peters Cuvee de Reserve, Blanc de Blancs, Dampierre Cuvée des Ambassadeures Premier Cru, and Pehu Simone Face Nord Extra Brut Grand Cru. This one is the weakest in taste, quite band. The Dampierre was the best, bold and tasty finish, while the Pehu Simonet was very drinkable, nice taste but weaker finish. — 20 days ago

Criolla Barreal Finca Maggio Uva Criolla Chica 2019

Delectable Wine
9.1

A Criolla Chica planted in Barreal, Calingasta, at 1,550 meters above sea level, up to 10% fermented in whole bunches. Terracotta in hue, it presents notes of strawberry, damp earth, herbs and traces of menthol as well as faint aromas of almond cookie and rum cake. Offers a complex mix of simple flavors; on the palate, the tannins are active with heightened freshness and a ruggedness that sticks to the gums, while the innate fruitiness comes out at the back of the throat. A great wine with a profile one rarely sees in reds on the local scene. (Joaquín Hidalgo, Vinous, October 2020) — 17 days ago

Bodega Benegas

Estate Libertad Vineyards Syrah 2015

First Syrah Argentina ... the color is typical of the grape variety, dense purple. Nose of small black fruits (blueberry, blackcurrant), violet and sweet spices. On the palate: the attack is fresh and greedy, medium body nourished by aromas of aging inevitably evoking the Rhône-Nord. The finish is rather straightforward, 2015 is balanced now !

Première Syrah Argentine... la robe est typique du cépages, violine dense. Nez sur les petits fruits noirs (myrtille, cassis) violette et épices douce. En bouche: l’attaque est fraîche et gourmande, corpulence moyenne nourri d’arômes d’élevages évoquant immanquablement le Rhône-Nord. La finale est plutôt franche, 2015 est équilibré et prêt à boire
