Concreto Mendoza Malbec 2018

Jan A
9.3

Malbec. Deep purple rim, black core. Spices and violets on the nose. From calceous soils in the Valle de Uco at 1100m close to the mountains. Whole cluster fermentation and aged in concrete egg shaped vats to optimally preserve the fruit. No oak. Young but drinking well already. Will surely benefit from a few years cellaring. For now93+

Cheval des Andes Mendoza Malbec Blend 2012

Serious blend of Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon from high in the Andes blended by a team from Cheval Blanc. Conceived as a Grand Cru level wine this would be a perfect accompaniment to steak or a hearty beef dish. Plenty of tannins on the attack and a very long finish as the wine resolves from the up front Malbec into the smoother Cabernet Sauvignon influence. — 9 days ago

White Bones Vino de Parcela Adrianna Vineyard Chardonnay 2016

9.3

Wednesday Wine Committee from this past week. A fantastic hosting by @joe leatherwood . 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 5 reds, 1 dessert wine. All tasted blind as usual.

The most difficult wine of the day to guess. It was like a super bright Alsatian Riesling mixed with Chablis. Crazy light colored in the glass. Very tart in all aspects. Lemon-lime, limestone, high minerality, and a Fruit Loop like note too (kudos to Weston for picking that up). Steely and sharp on the palate with more citrus and stone fruits, lemon oil and crushed wet rocks. Complex and unique. I called this Chablis.

Had ( & still have some) the 14 White Bones awhile back and really loved it. I think it stood up to just about any quality world stage producer of Chardonnay very well.

Domaine Nico

Soeur et Freres Grand Mere Pinot Noir 2012

Excellent Pinot. Well balanced and with the right astringency. Unlike many pinots from the USA, it doesn’t try to impress you with an excessive alcohol content, but seduces like a burgundy would do. Needs to breathe for a couple hours to open up. Black current and leather notes. — 2 days ago

Domaine Bousquet

Virgen Organic Malbec 2019

100% Malbec, with no sulphites added.. Very fresh and lively wine, with a nice roundness and the note of acidity necessary to bring the freshness which balances the volume in the mouth. Very greedy on very ripe fresh black fruits, black plum-type stone fruits, roasted notes of sweet spices, and a hint of menthol. Good value for money. — 20 days ago

Adrianna Catena and Alejandro Vigil project in Mendoza Argentina. Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc botteling. 100RP / 99JS. Spicey, green pepper, extracted, oak, drying tannins. Dark fruit. Could use some additional time to smoothen the rough edges. 93+
Edit day two: much softer, would store this away for at least 5 years. Solid but not 100points like Parker and JS gave to this wine

El Enemigo

Gran Enemigo Gualtallary Single Vineyard Cabernet Franc

A wine that highlights on the palate secret flavors camouflaged by velvety tannins from cabernet franc. It exudes a captivating mixture of insinuating minerals to sprout from the earth to the fruits. Lovers who enjoy the pleasure of mutual donation from the region's climate. A wine to make love. A great enemy to defy time. Wine to drink for two or surprise friends. — 7 days ago

Domaine Bousquet

Cameleon Organic Malbec 2018

Color of deep ruby, with shades of purple, quite clear. Nose of mocha, plum, and some dark fruits. Taste is quite straightforward with ripe sweet grapes, cherry, spice, peppery, and mellow tannins. Aftertaste shows a bit more salty mineral. Quite on par. — 19 days ago
