Clos de los Siete Malbec Blend

I think this is an amazing Malbec blend - 58%, 23% Merlot, 10% Cab, 8% Syrah, and 1% Petit Verdot but… it needs to open up a little bit more; I can’t help being impatient- this wine has been 9 years for me to find it tucked away in a small city Arkansas liquor store. Initial impressions are - I love this but and the intricacy of the blend. On the nose - definitely blackberry and black currants. So smooth and perfectly balanced on the palette. I would definitely purchase this again but I’d look for an older bottle for sure! Oh, did I mention this bottle cost under $20? — a month ago

Very smooth. Still having Covid related taste issues and I can actually taste the flavor of this wine. Very good. First tried it while on a travel nurse contract in Batesville , Arkansas on Aug 17, 2021. — 3 years ago


Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Yesterday late afternoon with my wife while visiting my son and his wife in Arkansas we had the pleasure of opening the 2017 Whitehaven Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough, New Zealand.

On the nose there was beautiful aromatics of grapefruit, guava, lime, grass, orange peel, white flowers and minerality.

On the palate the nose was confirmed with notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lime, orange peel, herbaceous notes and minerality.

The wine is well balanced, medium bodied with high acidity and a nice effervescence quality that leads right into a long fresh, clean crisp finish. A very nice expression of New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc. This wine was enjoyed by all and everyone expressed their full enjoyment. Have a great week this week and please be safe. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

@Adam Beasley we had wonderful time there. We were right there in Springdale. Too bad we didn't stay longer. We spent time at Sassafras Vineyard and Winery. Spent sometime in Bentonville and went over to the Cherokee Casino. Would have loved to share a glass with you. Maybe next time we come to town.
