Cuyo Cabernet Sauvignon

Mascota Vineyards

La Mascota Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Color of purple and ruby mix, slightly cloudy. Nose of grass, cigar box, tobacco leaves, cherry jam, and a bit spice. Taste is also dominated by grassy and leafy note, tobacco leaves, some cherry jam, good tannins, and a bit too much rustic metallic notes or sulfates. Aftertaste of some subtle dried berry note, but a bit too much sulfates again. Overall, good experience with her nice leafy nature. — 4 days ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

Historic Rows Catena Alta Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Opened up after a couple days. Initially tannins were harsh with soft berry flavors but softened by time as dark fruits were more prominent and tannins softened. — 5 days ago

Roberto de la Mota

La Gran Revancha Malbec Blend 2014

Bodega Mendel is a boutique winery with an incredible story. Combination of 1928 Argentinian Malbec vines and other Bordeaux varietals provide a combination of sophisticated structure with enough complexity to keep the palate engaged. My favourite wine from Mendel. — 12 days ago

Carmelo Patti

Lujan de Cuyo Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Color of mix of ruby, purple, and black tea note. Nose of plum, some savory spice, some dried strawberries, hint is acidity and strength of alcohol. Taste of some cocoa, black tea actually, some orange peel, a bit too watery, raisins, dried strawberries, spice, some peachy note, and hint of earthy note. I wonder if she needs some time to open up. After 20 or so minutes, flavors jump back to life. Taste notes are more vivid with addition of leafy notes. Aftertaste of good tannins, some tobacco leaves, and residual spice note. Drink her now. — 24 days ago

Finca Decero

Remolinos Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Probably an 8.8 but at its cheap price I bumped it up! Nose of a field of violets and soil turned after a brief rain. Light. Red licorice and plum — 8 days ago

Bodega Calle

Reserva Alberti La Mano Derecha Cabernet Sauvignon

Aged 12 months in oak and it shows. This wine is delightfully rich without being heavy. Excellent berry flavors with deep oak essence. Perfect with pasta and steak. — 17 days ago


Agrelo Malbec Blend 2012

Deep burgundy colour. Much heavier wine with the addition of the Petit Verdot, versus the same Vineyard’s Malbec. Provides good depth, oddly helping accentuate the floral Malbec notes before a nice tannic finish — 12 days ago
