Los Carneros Pinot Noir 2015

RSV has just under 200 acres of vineyards in 5 Carneros locations & a winery in the Stags Leap District. The wines are 100% organic. Ruby with delightful berry, cherry & spice aromas that carries through to palate with strawberry & cherry and complex spice, citrus and a touch of oak with fine soft tannins. Lively acidity gives the wine good balance, carries through the finish with an earthy creamy characteristic ending with notes of vanilla spice. Nice! — 13 hours ago

Los Locos de la Bahia Garnacha Tintorera

9.1

#garnachatintorera #alicantebouschet I’m stoked because I tasted it blind and thought this is Tintorera! And I was right. Deep color. With Tintorera I’m starting to understand the vibe. It’s Syrah color and aromas (savoury, spicy and peppery) with the richness and juiciness of Garnacha Tinta. This is a Basque winery that I believe just buys bulk and commercializes their wines, or at least this series of wines. More or less 6€ a bottle in #Spain its a killer deal of a wine. I personally am not a fan of cartoon like labels. — 23 days ago

Not a bad wine at all. More earthy and gritty that I expected from this Merlot. Balanced.... If I had a blind taste test- I would have failed. — 21 days ago

Lots of mineral on the nose and an ever so subtle bit of jam there at the end. I wish I could make this an everyday drinker. h/t to Chris Leon for the bottle! — 24 days ago

Cheval des Andes Mendoza Malbec Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.5

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.
