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.

Clos de los Siete Cabernet Sauvignon Blend 2010

Vintage 2010 Liver saucage in smell. Cherries. Choco. Ash. Distinguished taste. Not a very clear Malbec character. Medium acidity. / Second day the Malbec typicity was much more obvious with lovely chocolate smell and a velvety taste. Paired it with ribeye and bearnaise sauce. — 7 days ago

Republica del Malbec 2015

This remains to be one of my favourite Malbec producers from Mendoza. The colour is Magneta, almost black. The wine is composed of lush, perfectly ripe plums, cherries, cassis, black currant and blueberries. There are hints of dark chocolate. Velvety tannins elegantly dance around the cheeks until gracefully fleeting away to the back of the palate. — 3 hours ago

Gran Reserva Mendoza Malbec 2016

Very smooth on the palate. Robust of simple flavors of red fruits followed by nicely balanced tannins with a silky chocolatey, not especially long finish. Quite enjoyable — 2 hours ago

Octava Alta Malbec Cabernet Franc 2012

An avalanche of blueberries. Hints of violets and leather. A slight “green” quality. Big tannins and finish. Pleasant surprise. — 2 days ago

Iscay Malbec Cabernet Franc 2012

Big day of wine! Grand Reserve tasting at Total followed by steak night.

Really fun earthy wine. This wine has soil driven aromas all over the nose with ripe red fruits helping balance the back end. Really nice with steak.

Unoaked Chardonnay 2017

Nice fruit - not too oaky - not overly heavy, but just the right viscosity that I like in a Chardonnay. And great value as well! — 5 days ago
