My first Argentine Cab Franc. This is New World in every sense, but the oak is integrated beautifully and the wine is balanced and classy. Crimson color, nose of brambly, super-lifted red and blue fruit and subtle baking spices. Acid and tannin are in striking balance, and the finish is pure and long. Not overly complex, but certainly delicious. — 15 days ago
Feels balanced. Loved the texture of this wine. Very smooth with polished tannins. A little Bordeaux-esque. Menthol, black cherries and black currant. Needs some time to breathe so a quick decant is recommended. Overall, a great effort. Very impressed with this winery. For $20, it’s a great option worth seeking out again. — 5 days ago
Wednesday Wine Committee. 1 sparkler, 3 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine. Blind as usual.
I picked up what seemed to be a touch of American oak coconut/dill followed by a very dark fruit profile showing plum, blackberries and currant, with a small dash of rhubarb. Black pepper spice finish. I called this Spanish Grenache. — 10 days ago
Bodegas Caro “Petit Caro” Malbec-Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 (Argentine)
Caro is a collaboration between Catena and Rothschild. Pop and Pour. Wow, weightless. Great mouthfeel. Great QPR. Neither Malbec nor Cabernet Sauvignon stands out. All blended in, becoming an easy-to-drink pleasant wine.

Sophisticated beyond its price, this vibrant, spicy midweight Chardonnay delivers a silky texture; inviting notes of yellow peach, pineapple, lemon zest, hazelnut and dusty wild herbs; and slowly building sweetness after an austere start. An element of saline minerality adds another dimension. $19.00 (Stephen Tanzer, Vinous, July 2019) — 19 days ago
Blew my socks off! Never tasted a wine like this. A Cab Franc, but so rich, so present, it demanded your full attention every time you take a sip. Vibrant raspberry upfront and dark cherry on the mid palette wrapped in a spice. Phenomenal pairing with home made basil tomato soup and a nice juicy steak. Loving life!!! — 12 days ago
A decent red. Bit light and slightly fruity at times, but enough depth to go well with hearty red meats! Wonderful! — 2 days ago
