Pícaro del Águila Clarete Tempranillo Blend 2015

Unique wine. Medium salmon color with baked cherry and oak on the nose. Bright minerality and stone on the fore-pallet with a tart raspberry finish; light but present tannings as well. Must try rosé for any rosé lover. — 9 days ago

Dominio del Plata (Susana Balbo)

Susana Balbo Brioso Mendoza Red Blend 2013

No new-ish notes tonight, except that at ~2 years since our prior bottle, the alcohol heat has considerably subsided, also chocolate+fig+cigar box now in the nose. Decanted 3h.
Paired to Allen Bros. tenderloin tails, grilled to a beautiful 130°F (55°C), smashed new potatoes from our garden and local, mid-season sweet corn (it's the best time of the year to enjoy corn).

I now suggest this wine (2013) can hold, in proper storage, until 2028-33 until a very good drinking window.

Prior notes:
45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec, 25% Cabernet Franc & 5% Petit Verdot

Color is deep plum, like totally opaque, but a beautiful semi-translucent blackberry color at the edge of the glass.

Nose is liquor of cassis, some noticable heat from the alcohol (14.5%), plum juice, light oak.
Palate is very smooth, dusty plum, blackberry, blueberry skin, mocha, coffee bean; tannins are still grippy, finish is about 45s.

Generally a very nice bottle, we bought this in March '18, just getting to it tonight finally. Very impressed by this effort, light years ahead of the entry level Balbo wines. We only ever came across this once, $35 was a solid buy, and hands down my favorite Balbo wine to date.
