Concreto Mendoza Malbec 2019

A great Malbec! Red berries, new oak, white pepper, and barnyard on the nose. Spices and red currant on the palate Sturdy bodied with high alc and round drying tannins. Medium minus acidity.

UPDATE: Reportedly, this is aged entirely in concrete! Thus, my oak nose note is off.

Pedro Parra y Familia

Imaginador Itata Cinsault 2017

From one of the leading lights of the Chilean counter movement of wine, Pedro Parra, a doctor of terroir, soil and a very talented and well respected winemaker. 
The Imaginador Cinsault is sourced from granitic soils in the region of Itata, dry farmed of course. Partially whole clusters, light extraction and matured in a mix of old oak and concrete for 12 months.
It is definetely not a shy wine, near provacative in its profile yet with respect and the fundamentals intact. Ripe but fresh strawberries, bramble, red currants with a very prominent savouriness of crushed stones, black pepper and an almost overwhelmingly smoked meatiness. Palate is light and fresh, directed by its acidity, a slight, smooth grip from the tannins, good fruit intensity but falls a wee short on the final. Quenchanble but serious and a fun drinker.

I love it. The alcohol seems oddly too low for the region and the grapes, but that doesn’t matter too much the wine is delicious. #penedes recovering indigenous varieties — 22 days ago

Serie A Salta Torrontés 2020

I adore this style of Torrontes. Like lemon thyme and daffodils and yellow roses. Nice kick of salinity to boot. Makes me want to drink more Torrontes. — a month ago

@Ellen Clifford I remember one of the 3 blind tasted wines for the WSET LEVEL 3 a few years ago was an Argentinian Torrontes. Not only delicious but stood out like the proverbial. An easy pick.
