Valiente Mendoza Bonarda

Esse bonarda tem a cara e coragem de Mendoza. Taninos levemente pronunciados e no nariz uma abundância de frutas vermelhas. — 16 days ago

Boca Nebbiolo Blend 2010

Seems fully mature. Complex nose shows wet earth, a little mushroom, and some macerated cherry underneath. Still some tannin left, but complex flavors show tart cherry, loads of minerally earth, and underbrush. Very distinctive. — a month ago

Patriota Mendoza Malbec Bonarda 2015

Deep purple in color with a short purple rim.

Fruity nose of blueberries, plums, black currants, coffee, oak, cloves, earth, vegetables, graphites, spices, bitter herbs, wet leaves, vanilla, licorice and black pepper.

Full bodied and smooth with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with plums, black currants, oak, cloves, earth, dark coffee, vegetables, graphites, bell pepper, spices, bitter herbs and peppercorn.

Medium plus in finish with soft tannins and tangy cranberries.

This Bonarda blend from Argentina is always enjoyable. Earthy with enough black fruits to be able to enjoy by itself. A good food wine too.

Showing nice complexity and a nice mouthfeel.

Wine Enthusiasts 90 points.

Good right out of the bottle and gets earthier as it opens up. This vintage does not seem to show a lot of tannins, for some reason. Maybe because there is more Bonarda than in other vintages.

Needs 2 years to mature properly.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

A blend of 60% Bonarda and 40% Malbec.

13.5% alcohol by volume (feels like more).

89 points.

$25.

Trebbiolo Rosso Barbera Bonarda 2017

Barbera & Bonarda blend from an Emilia Romagno maker. I love this style- gave a good 45+ min decant. Imagine the Bonarda offsets the Barbera fruitiness. Keeps a taut line btw vegetal acidity & that earthy fruitiness. Natural maker of some serious orange wines. 13% alcohol. Didn’t hurt that we drank at sunset, on the Hudson River at home. — 25 days ago

Very interesting Amarone style creation from Malbec and Cab in Argentina with Allegrini. Have that nose of red fruits and berries and that silky sweet texture. Be good to comp with the real thing. — a month ago
