Mendoza, Cuyo

Bodega Bressia

Profundo Malbec Blend 2012

Great first wine to break a two week drinking hiatus. Delivers the goods in a elegant package. Red and black currant, fine herb, tobacco, bay leaf. Explosive nose. Spot on delicious somewhere between old world and new world. — 5 days ago

Chakana

Ayni Lujan de Cuyo Malbec 2015

Drinks extra fresh and lively. Superb acidity that's lifts the blue and black fruits. A little "magic marker" on the nose that translates to the palate which subtracts a point, but this is quality. — 5 days ago

The Apple Doesn't Fall Far From The Tree Malbec 2015

Too you. Opened up nicely though. Smooth tannins, dark red fruit, tar. Not bad for the price though maybe lacking a bit of complexity at least at this age. — a day ago

2016 vintage. You can really smell the fruit. The nose is much sweeter than the taste. Jammy notes of berries with a huge hint of prunes. The rich, dark, thick color foretells the taste to expect. Pared this with crab stuffed mushrooms, baba ghanoush, and wheat thins. This one makes me wonder why I don’t drink more Malbec. — 3 days ago

Cheval des Andes Mendoza Malbec Blend 2012

9.4

High elevation fruit leads to a inky high concentrated grape with tons of character. Napa qualities but goes further to a nice place of spice and earth yet stops before the French barnyard funk. Will start looking at Mendoza more. — 8 days ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

Angelica Zapata Alta Chardonnay

‪the best #Malbec is grown at high elevations ⛰, and some of the best - like this lush, ripe, floral Angelica Zapata Malbec Alta - should be drunk there, too‬ — a day ago

Famiglia Bianchi

1887 Mendoza Malbec 2016

Very full, smooth and satisfying. One of the chef’s recommendations at La Cabrera, Palermo, Buenos Aires w Wendy, Todd and Caroline. U$D 18, one of the few less expensive wines on the menu. — 6 days ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

High Mountain Vines San Carlos Cabernet Franc 2014

Smells of a morning in the redwood forests of Northern California. Damp dew upon unfurling fiddleheads.

Complex wine with each petal releasing a different flavor. Mint, berry bramble, hint of Thai basil, Earth, and garden pepper.


It ends with a see saw balancing act of tannin and acid, both coming to the front as often as they can.

Argentino Mendoza Malbec 2006

Deep ruby , still young looking. Aromas of ripe plum, cherry and spice . Still youthful and exciting on the nose . In the mouth also , lovely balancing acidity sweet tannin. Very long and balanced on the finish . Perhaps it is missing a bit of complexity , but it may come with more bottle age — 10 days ago
