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 — 4 days ago
This is a nice Cabernet blend from Mendoza. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, vegetables, wood, bitter herbs, spices, dark coffee, coke and peppercorn.
Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.
Nice finish with round tannins and tangy cranberries.
Nice right out of the bottle and much calmer after 90 minutes of airtime.
This 5 year old is not getting any better, so drink up.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
14.1% alcohol by volume.

... and then there was dinner. Grilled balsamic / soy marinated skirt steak, roasted and herbed baby bell peppers, and grilled ciabatta, paired with Zuccardi’s, Concreto, Malbec from Valle de Uco, Mendoza, Argentina. Delish!!!! Vintage 2017. ABV 14%.
To start, as noted, the Ruinart! Paired with ribboned cantaloupe, sugar snap pea, ricotta, and tarragon salad. 💕 — 5 days ago
The seventeenth vintage of Cheval des Andes, a wine that has undergone a model transformation. I recently tried the 2007, and it’s fascinating to trace the different stages of its evolution, all of which say something about the contemporary history of Argentine wine. To sum up, it started out with a French love of concentration and ripeness and ended up with an equally French love of equilibrium and local terroir. The 2017 is a new beginning in itself. A blend of Malbec with 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, it presents a bold nose of fresh fruit such as sweet and sour cherry with fleshy aromas and a touch of white pepper over a bold, woody backdrop. A fluid wine, slightly taut on the palate with medium structure, a delicate feel and active tannins well integrated into the terse texture, overall it is nuanced and full of flavor. Possesses a balance that respects the concentration of the vintage without ever letting it get out of hand. An Argentine wine made with more than a nod to French expertise.
