Bodega Chacra

Cincuenta y Cinco Pinot Noir 2017

Holy ****! This is good. Move over Oregon! Tart raspberry, strawberry, and forest floor to the max balanced by tremendous acidity and smooth tannins. Clusters are hand selected from 65 year old vines and aged 14 months in neutral oak. The structure and character remind me of some higher end Oregon Pinots but with more concentration. Decant for 2 hours to let it open up - then enjoy. 2017 vintage on Jan 17, 2019 — 4 days ago

Recreation of “Judgement of Paris II” blind Pinot tasting with the addition of a bonus wine from the Central Otago:
medium ruby, amber rim • aromatic, cherry cordial, sweet berries, very floral, cinnamon, cloves • very complex, fine grained tannins, 13.5% ABV • single vineyard bottling, aged 24 months in 50% new French oak • reminiscent of good Burgundy, ready to drink now but will age

Bodega Catena Zapata

The Immigrant Malbec

This Argentine Malbec is a full-throated testament to winemaking. It's inky black, it smells of fire, tar, vanilla, licorice, black pepper and black fruit. The nose is simply astounding. On the palate are flavors of blackberry, toasty oak, cigar and sweet spice. A pairing with lamb would be great, or heavy beef cuts. Or, just sip and enjoy. It's good that way, too. — 22 days ago

Mascota Vineyards

Extra Brut Rosé Blend

A very pale salmon-colored rosé. Bubbles are fine and persistent, though the mousse dissipates quickly (even though it’s a wee bit warmer that it should be. Nose is a bit shy yielding red fruits and hibiscus. Tart but weighty palate echoes the nose adding sharp acidity (which is to be expected). Don’t be scared. The prevailing world climate makes extra brut wines quite approachable. This is no exception. Enjoy as an aperitif or with seafood, poultry, or soft cheeses. — 5 days ago
