This is the most sensual Malbec I ever drank. It has charm, elegance and refinement. It enchants you like it is smiling to you😊. Berry, is very present, smooth like silk with notes of rosemary. — 8 days ago
A real find from Argentina, fermented 50% in cement, aged for 12 months in used French oak. Light red with purple edges, aromas of fresh red berry fruits and notes of floral spice. On the palate cherry with a touch of raspberry flavors adding in fresh spices, soft integrated tannins giving a great balance. Lingering finish ending with fruit and mineral character. Nice delicate Pinot! — 18 days ago
Lago Ranco Riesling 2017
Young with lots of primary aromas of green fruit (apple, lime) and a slight peach aroma.
Mix in a wiff of plastic (think clare valley) some sea salty-minerality a crisp, young acidity dosed with a very slight sweetness makes this an excellent companion to food (anyone for ceviche?).
Very young, but still enjoyable now. — 10 days ago
Very dark and deep fruit. Full flavor. — 3 days ago

Dusty left bank aromatics. Strong at 15 years - a medium to full bodied palate still vibrant and alive. A word on Drinking Windows - A UK source I respect greatly said 2016-2018 for this wine but this tasting showed there was a lot of life left - maybe another 4 to 5 years I would say. To be fair it is an inexact science. This the Argentinian venture of Right Bank Icon, Chateau Cheval Blanc. 55% Malbec, 43% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot. There is no doubt you could mistake this as Bordeaux. An excellent Wine singing at 15 years. — 10 days ago
Definitely needed to be decanted, but very good thereafter. — 16 days ago
Awesome... I used to buy 8 dollar Septima by the case before I could afford higher price points. Actually never knew until recently that that had more to offer.
This is a Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Tannat blend. Gran Reserva. Aged 18 months in French oak. 14.5 abv. A very deep red-purple, opaque color, leaning toward inky. Full bodied.
On open, very meaty nose. After 30 minutes, white pepper, ...
White pepper persists in the palate with wood and nuts entering the mix. Cedar and a hint of stewer blackberries. Nice medium tannins, low if any acidity. Big wine. I love it. Septima!!! Who knew???
