Excellent wine, perfectly aged - and a great way to celebrate my boy’s elementary school graduation with his birth year wine. (He didn’t partake, fwiw) — 16 days ago

Cheval des Andes

Mendoza Malbec Blend 2014

Lovely wine. This is deep ruby with loads of wet forest floor initially and after aeration it develops deep red fruit and oak scents. The mouthfeel is impressive, very round. Raspberry, vanilla, slight spices and soft tannings. Great vintage here. Cheers. — 18 days ago

Bodegas Poesia

Reserva Clos des Andes Mendoza Malbec 2016

Essentially a Bordeaux expression of Malbec. Cassis, dry blackberries. The mid palate is dry- not a bad thing, just wonder if this needs to be a Malbec. — 4 days ago

Alamos

Mendoza Malbec 2019

Color of purple, nice legs. Nose of strength of alcohol, vanilla, tobacco leaves, strawberry jam, and more powerful spicy alcohol. Taste of good acidity, spice, sweet grapes, vanilla, zest, peppery, and a bit minty. Aftertaste of some hints of soft tannins and mineral, and some more ripe grapes. On par. — 19 days ago
