Patriota Mendoza Malbec Bonarda 2014

Deep, dark violet with cherry red hues. Huge fruit on the nose with cranberry, ripe cherries, and blackberries showing dominance. While a big wine, this manages a very silky mouthfeel with a touch of refinement, as well. Vanilla, smoked wood chips, strawberry, and heaps of dark fruit deliciousness. The Bonarda adds an herbal element to the blend that you don’t necessarily see coming. Those herbs take you to the long finish. A spectacularly fun wine. — 2 days ago

Prmiera Mendoza Vino Tinto 2012

Pure liquid magic. This wine was AMAZING. We loved the full robust flavor with such a smooth silky taste. This paired so well with our steak dinner and blew us away when we also drank it with dark chocolate. — 6 days ago

Angelica Zapata Alta Cabernet Franc 2013

Sadly never comes to the States and last had an ‘04 when I was in Argentina in ‘11 so couldn’t wait to find a bottle on this trip. More gripping and darker in color than the blood-red ‘04. Great now and will continue to soften and evolve over many years to come. Glad to see it’s popularity Increasing since last time....albeit harder to find! ;) — 11 days ago

Quimera Malbec Blend

Blackberry, black cherry and cassis dominant with notes of pink peppercorn, dill and smoke. Grippy but not overpowering tannins that take some decanting to open. Once opened a smooth cocoa note comes through. Delicious now but also very age worthy. — 9 days ago

Cruz Alta

Reserve Mendoza Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Color of purple and ruby mix. Nose of nice fermented cabbage, wet mushroom, atypical as a Cab, a bit leather, a bit coffee, and tobacco leaves. Taste is also atypical, with zest and salty earthy note, berry note, tobacco leaves again, the fruit note is really marginal to me. My taste is very difference from described on the bottle, even though the bottle is quite decent. Aftertaste is quite good mellow tannins. Puzzled. — 17 days ago

Finca Los Altepes Uco Valley Malbec 2016

The fruit used to make this wine comes from a single estate, “finca”, in higher elevation Los Arboles, Uco Valley. All manually harvested and aged in American and French oak for 12 months. Valley fruit draws out the iris, sage, peppercorns and “green” notes of Malbec. Tannins are chewy. You are getting a lot of wine for practically nothing. Definitely speaks to its terrior with tons of minerality. This truly gives you a sense of place in the glass. Bracing acidity lifts the chocolate, sweet tobacco, coconut, and dill from the American oak, but black and blue fruit stays fresh and integrated.
