Bodega Chacra

Cincuenta y Cinco Pinot Noir

Pinot from Patagonia by Sassiciaia, yes please! Deep ruby fruits, iron, licorice. Very terroir driven! Not the most structured. But interested to see how they develop! — 6 days ago

Alta Vista

Premium Estate Malbec 2018

I’ve seen mixed reviews on this wine and must advise to properly aerate this bottle. Initially the nose is tight and the pallet a little too acidic. After about an hour though, the wine really opens up to scents of blackberry, raspberry, sweet tobacco and cocoa. On the pallet there is red plum, raspberry, blackberry, and vanilla with a medium plus body, medium alcohol, medium acidity. The wine is dry with a sharp dark chocolaty finish. Definitely not a pop and pour kind of wine despite its youth. If you have the time to spare the wine will pay dividends, both, in tasting experience and value.

PS This a high altitude wine; grapes grown at over a thousand meters above sea level in the Andean Slopes, and I’m tempted to correlate its initial tightness with it; however, there is no evidence to back it up my assumption. May be just a myth, but cheers to myths!

Barda Patagonia Pinot Noir 2019

Ruby with aromas of red fruits, floral and herb cedar notes. On the palate flavors of raspberry and strawberry with notes of cacao and earthy cedar toned. Fine soft tannins, long finish ending with fruit, mineral and earthy character. Very nice value!! — 21 days ago

Cruz Alta

Grand Reserve Pinot Noir 2018

Clear garnet red. Inviting nose and medium-bodied palate of black cherry cobbler and woodsy earth. Medium plus-ish acidity makes up for the next to no tannins. Argentina’s high altitude vineyards prove to be ideal for a uniquely Southern Hemisphere style that’s great as a casual sipper or with cheeses, but serves equally well as a meal accompaniment. Enjoy with pork, vegetarian dishes, lighter cuts of beef, or the classic salmon (I’m having Atlantic). Drink now or next year. — 17 days ago
