Mendoza, Cuyo

Bodegas Salentein

Alyda Cuvée Prestige Brut Nature Chardonnay Blend

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this evening with the Boston Pops Orchestra. Our Pops conductor Keith Lockhart is leading a live-to-picture performance of Star Wars: A New Hope, a showing of the classic 1977 film, with the Orchestra performing Mr. Williams’ iconic score.
For live-to-picture productions, the orchestra performs the entire movie score in real time as the film unspools. (Vocals, dialogue and effects are isolated from the original music track.)
Generally we get to hear Star Wars scores a couple times per season here at Tanglewood, but tonight we get a chance to hear them with the backdrop of the movie (Episode IV) that launched a franchise, to say the least!

I celebrated another full trip around the sun, since my coming into this world, earlier this week. Tonight my wife, some dear friends and me will be enjoying some enticing wines along with our movie night. So notes...maybe, but I'll try!

Tamarelli Vineyards

Mendoza Malbec 2011

Dark purple in color with a very short purplish rim. Not showing age at all.

Fruity nose with black currants, black plums, sweet cherries, raisins, dried figs, vegetables, light wood, cola, earth, vanilla, dark chocolates, licorice, spices, pencil lead and black pepper.

Full-bodied and elegant with medium acidity and long legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, licorice, cloves, herbs, spices, dark chocolates, cola, vinaigrette, tobacco, coffee, graphites, peppercorn and earth.

Long tangy finish with fine grained tannins and tangy raspberries.

This is a great Malbec from Mendoza. Showing very nice complexity with a great mouthfeel. Well balanced and peaking now, at 8 years of age.

Needs an hour to open up properly, but good right out of the bottle, as it is very fruity right away.

It has high alcohol, which is nicely integrated, so watch out.

Does not feel like an Argentinian Malbec, but rather a nicely aged Californian Petite Sirah. Really enjoyed it.

Good by itself or with food. I paired It with cheeses and crackers. Very yummy.

Made with 100% Malbec grapes. Grapes are grown at high altitude of 3,700 feet . Aged for 12 months in French Oak barrels.

14.9% alcohol by volume.

91 points.

Lujan de Cuyo Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Musky raspberry, cherry, orange bell pepper smell, slightly purple blood red, the taste is unapproachable in a good way, it invites the taste buds to find the balance and flavor that is definitely there (opposed to jamminess that pushes forward making it obvious and an attention-whore - think Cali-cab), the raspberry strawberry and mandarin undertones dance together over a lukewarm structure that has both wet and dry layers of tannins (aren’t non-jammy cabs so fun!), the flavor feels like it’s dispersing but then flares, the wine is savory and complex and medium bodied and delicate — 2 days ago

Unánime Gran Vino Tinto

Fantastic, as always. Rich nose and palate. But fruits are not as strongly noticeable as in previous years (maybe blackberry). Dominates dark chocolate, coffee and tobacco. But this is still one of my favorites. — 3 days ago

Malbec 2018

Серьёзный сабж. Дегустировал с Негроамаро и блендом Каберне-Цимлянский чёрный. Все три участника подобраны отлично, все достойные, все солидные, но Мальбек - самый напористый. Не скажу, что самый лучший в этом трио, но мои навязчивые ассоциации (мальбек и негроамаро - родственники) исчезли. Мальбек отличается и от обоих "соперников". Аромат глубокий, травяной (в начале), сложный, много трав, даже валериану слышно немного. Его надо пить отдельно, потом допишу. Спиритуозность высокая, может, недоохладил. Вкус мягкий, несмотря на сложность аромата, ненавязчивый, послевкусие стойкое, но не давит. Однозначно в вишлист.
Добавлю запах мокрой выделанной кожи и вкус незрелой клубники и терпкого дикого яблока.
