La Consulta Select Mendoza Malbec 2017

A dryer Malbec than normal. It’s got a rich black cherry nose but the finish is short. A good wine to accompany a hearty meal to balance the fats. — 4 days ago

9.0

This left bank blend has very good dark fruit concentration and nice nuances of earth and oak spices. Medium to full body. Soft, smooth, with sweet silky tannins.
Delicious and easy drinking.

Terrazas de Los Andes

Grand High Altitude Vineyards Malbec 2011

Our final lunch in Cairns last Sunday on the waterfront. This wine chosen for the few guys who were having a steak instead of the stellar seafood curry on the menu. No formal notes but a good workmanlike Argentinian Malbec. — a month ago

Quimera Mendoza Malbec Blend 2017

A blend of 50% Malbec, 22% Merlot, 22% Cab Sauv & 6% Cab Franc, aged in French oak 50/50 new & 1 year old, combining fruit from Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruit, earthy and floral spice. On the palate flavors of blackberry and tart cherry flavors, with vanilla, licorice, citrus and herb spice. Fine tannins, well balanced long finish ending with tart fruit and a sweet earthy mineral character. Nice! Tasted twice! — 12 days ago

Toko Vineyard Malbec 2015

Tasted blind and mistook for a very dark-fruited new world pinot. Bad but not extremely embarrassing, give the the high minerality, balanced ripeness and silky tannins — 3 days ago

Uno Mendoza Malbec 2017

Rich, opaque garnet coloring and a heady earth, spice and medium berry scent. Yummy black and red berries, light tannins, and an easy acidity. Very, very good. — 11 days ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

Nicolas Catena Zapata Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon Malbec 2007

Welcome to the long weekend. Tonight I have opened the 2007 Catena Nicolas Catena Cabernet Sauvignon. From Bodega Catena Zapata Mendoza, Argentina. The blend is 70% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Malbec and the remainder Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc.

On the nose there is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, leather, licorice, vanilla, smokey oak and dark rich earth.

On the palate there is black cherry, blackberry, black currant, licorice, leather, cedar, cigar box and earth.

This wine is full bodied yet showing it's age, soft and supple with medium to medium + acidity and medium to medium + mouthcoating grippy tannins that lead s us into a long black fruit and significant earthy finish. This is a great expression of Argentine Cabernet with some good years left in the bottle. Looking forward to this weekend and spending time with family. Have a great weekend and please stay safe and healthy. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷
