Barda Patagonia Pinot Noir 2014

If Burgundy is the pennacle of Pinot Noir… Pinot Noir by the creator of Sassicaia from The Argentine Patagonia is its evil twin… That is what’s in my glass. This is the entry level 2014 and it is mirroring some of the Premier Cru Burgundy’s I’ve tried in the past... Cheers! — 14 days ago

Bodega Norton

Reserva Mendoza Malbec 2021

black Fruit basket with tannins. My favorite varietal. Argentinian Malbec consistently deliver the best of what this grape offers. Blackberry, black plums, hints of cedar, wet stone, and vanilla. Tannins from being still a young wine. — a month ago


Reserve Mendoza Malbec 2019

This red wine is well balanced, combined with a sweet tannins and a velvety finish, which is great to serve with red meats and tomato dishes.

The wine also has a bright crimson red whose plum and raspberry aromas mingle elegantly with vanilla notes from the 6months aged in French oak barrels.

Bodega Catena Zapata

Catena Alta Historic Rows Malbec 2018

Dark cherries, chocolate, touch o' smoke on the nose.
Black, blue fruits, malt, coffee beans, bruised mint, acid seems a bit overdosed, medium weight, mild bitterness on the aftertaste reminds me of chewing on licorice wood.

Pretty expensive for what it is.

Bodega Chacra

Cincuenta y Cinco Pinot Noir 2022

We absolutely love exploring the world’s many expressions of Pinot Noir!  It’s a lifelong endeavor and we’re here for it. 😆

Tonight, we’re taking a sensory trip to South America and, more specifically, Río Negro, Patagonia 🇦🇷 – the most southerly wine-producing region of Argentina – where Antarctic currents, winds descending from the Andes, & high latitudes offer cooling influences, ideal for producing elegant Pinot Noir styles.

Bodega Chacra was established in 2003 by Tuscan Piero Incisa della Rocchetta (grandson of Sassicaia’s founding father) in search of purity and nuance in fruit expression from the terroir of Patagonia. 🍇
Piero now partners with esteemed Burgundian winemaker (and friend) Jean-Marc Roulot in the production process, each contributing their respective oenological “genes” to the final wine, which is first and foremost a child of the earth in Mainqué, Río Negro. 🌱
Paying utmost respect to the land, Bodega Chacra cares for its vineyards organically and biodynamically aided, in part, by the arid, windy conditions that naturally mitigate fungal pressure in the vineyard. Their fruit is harvested by hand, allowing for selectivity and the use of whole bunches during fermentation. 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

This wine is called ‘Cincuenta Y Cinco’ (fifty five) because its fruit comes from vines first planted in 1955, carefully preserved by the team at Bodega Chacra, whose oldest vines actually date back to 1932!

This wine was fermented in cement vats using native yeast, adapted to the environment and matured 11 months (50% in concrete, 50% in French oak of various ages) before release. ⚖️

In a word this wine is ethereal.
We served it with a slight chill. Its pristine, berry and cherry fruit profile, complements the delicate cherry blossom, peony 🌺 and baking spice notes. It’s light on its feet w/ medium alcohol (12% ABV) and bright acidity.  It’s lovely & perfumed.

Cheers to Bodega Chacra and all of the beautiful Pinots of Patagonia!

Cheval des Andes Mendoza Malbec Blend 2016

If you will excuse the baseball euphemism, Cheval does not play small ball. And this venture in Argentina is brilliant. This one has been on her side long enough to enjoy long ball now, as in very long finish. And a fab value at < $100 — a month ago
