Welcome to the weekend. We are starting to wake from our long slumber 4 months and things are starting to transition back to some assemblance of normalcy. Tonight I have opened the 2014 Cuvelier Los Andes Colección from the Valle de Uco of Mendoza, Argentina. The blend is 68% Malbec, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Merlot and 3% Petit Verdot.
On the nose there is dark ripe cherry, blackberry, ripe plum, black currant, fig, black licorice, cocoa, sweet tobacco and earth.
The palate shows black cherry, blackberry, plum, green bell pepper, licorice, dark chocolate, tobacco, oak and earth.
This wine is full bodied with a velvety and unctuous mouth feel, medium + acidity and medium + crunchy tannins that lead right into a long earthy black fruit finish. I hope everyone is well and healthy, please stay safe and have a great weekend. Nostrovia! 🍷🍷🍷🍷 — a day ago

Pale lemon with aromas of stone and tropical fruits and notes of honeysuckle. On the palate flavors of ripe peach and apricot with notes of cedar and vanilla spice. Medium+ finish, nice balance with acidity ending with fruit and nutty character. Good value. — 2 months ago

I ❤️ Malbec! Plain & simple, Malbec was my first wine varietal love. It brings me back to my childhood, my father’s family and my numerous trips to Argentina. Great memories which make me smile and warms the heart. “Malbec, you are so comforting, flavorful & always a beautiful companion”. Thank you! Cheers🍷 — a month ago
