Bodega Benegas

Estate Libertad Vineyards Syrah 2015

First Syrah Argentina ... the color is typical of the grape variety, dense purple. Nose of small black fruits (blueberry, blackcurrant), violet and sweet spices. On the palate: the attack is fresh and greedy, medium body nourished by aromas of aging inevitably evoking the Rhône-Nord. The finish is rather straightforward, 2015 is balanced now !

Première Syrah Argentine... la robe est typique du cépages, violine dense. Nez sur les petits fruits noirs (myrtille, cassis) violette et épices douce. En bouche: l’attaque est fraîche et gourmande, corpulence moyenne nourri d’arômes d’élevages évoquant immanquablement le Rhône-Nord. La finale est plutôt franche, 2015 est équilibré et prêt à boire

Imposible Mendoza Malbec 2017

Delectable Wine
9.3

A Malbec from Vista Flores aged for eight months in cement and French oak. The very fruity nose features plum, blackberry and red currants and a pleasant note of mint. Relaxed on the palate, with gentle but discernible tannins, it is supported by moderate freshness that makes it especially easy to drink. Long, fruity aftertaste. This is a cozy, delicious wine that delivers concentration and flavor without ever squeezing too hard, and tannins that work very well in an Uco Valley Malbec.

Marejada

Cabernet Franc Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

This is a nice Cabernet blend from Mendoza. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, tobacco, vegetables, wood, bitter herbs, spices, dark coffee, coke and peppercorn.

Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and long legs.

Nice finish with round tannins and tangy cranberries.

Nice right out of the bottle and much calmer after 90 minutes of airtime.

This 5 year old is not getting any better, so drink up.

I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.

14.1% alcohol by volume.

89 points.

Terrazas de Los Andes

Cheval des Andes Mendoza Malbec Blend 2017

Delectable Wine
9.5

The seventeenth vintage of Cheval des Andes, a wine that has undergone a model transformation. I recently tried the 2007, and it’s fascinating to trace the different stages of its evolution, all of which say something about the contemporary history of Argentine wine. To sum up, it started out with a French love of concentration and ripeness and ended up with an equally French love of equilibrium and local terroir. The 2017 is a new beginning in itself. A blend of Malbec with 38% Cabernet Sauvignon, it presents a bold nose of fresh fruit such as sweet and sour cherry with fleshy aromas and a touch of white pepper over a bold, woody backdrop. A fluid wine, slightly taut on the palate with medium structure, a delicate feel and active tannins well integrated into the terse texture, overall it is nuanced and full of flavor. Possesses a balance that respects the concentration of the vintage without ever letting it get out of hand. An Argentine wine made with more than a nod to French expertise.
