El Enemigo

Mendoza Chardonnay 2018

9.0

I preferred the Enemigo red much more than this white #chardonnay it is a new world style with some tropical fruit aromas and a new oak undertone with hints of coconut. It is a well-made wine, fine and delicate. #argentina #mendoza — 4 months ago

Bodega Catena Zapata

Catena Alta Historic Rows Malbec 2015

MICHAEL COOPER DipWSET
9.1

Medium ruby color. Medium(+) intensity aromas of red fruit (plums and cherries and raspberries) black fruit (cassis, black currant and black plum) and secondary of oak (cedar, smoke) tertiaries with hints of leather and tobacco and there are some aromas of roasted red peppers. Medium(+) body medium(+) acidity, medium (+) ripe smooth tannins and high alcohol. The concentration of ripe fruit aromas and flavors seem to balance out the relatively high alcohol sensation and the acidity also helps to make the wine lively and not dense or dull. The wine has a nice fine-grained tannin giving it a slightly earthy texture. The wine seem capable of further bottle aging because it has a nice acidity and tannin that’s will guide it forward and the wine will continue to be interesting and could even be better from now until 5 years from now. Their is a clear varietal expression. It is purely #cabernetsauvignon as expressed by clear and defined aromas and flavors of cassis and cedar and hints of roasted peppers. It is made with historic Catena family’s Andean mountain vineyards 50% La Pirámide and 50% domingo Vineyard. #argentinewine #argentine #argentina #andes — 5 months ago

This 2015 is tasting wonderful. Only stainless and yet you would swear it had large format oak due to the supple tannins. In a good moment. #bonarda #argentinawine #argentina — a year ago

La Consulta Malbec 2018

9.2

Deep ruby color. Pronounced aromas of violets and lilies, fresh black fruit (blueberries, blackberries and black cherries) and hints of vainilla and cedar. On the palate it is juicy and fresh with medium acidity, medium(+) fine grained ripe tannin and medium(+) body. The finish is medium(+) and slightly sweet of ripe delicious fruit. The taster for Robert Parker only gave it 90+ but I believe that he is diverging further and further away from what the wine collector and wine consumer really enjoy and is scoring very subjectively based on his own personal preference for Burgundy and Jura wines. In the context of new world wines and Argentina and Malbec, I find this wine fresh and perfectly ripe and with a controlled oak presence and a very solid effort to transmit the terroir of the La Consulta sub-region. #catena #catenazapata #argentina #malbec #mountainwine — 4 months ago

Lovely. Blueberries, blackberries, hickory, maple, bacon fat, hints of chocolate. Maintains a balanced acidity and fine granular tannins. I love it. Much better than many Napa Cabernets which cost 2x or 3x the price. #malbec #mendoza #argentina — 5 months ago

Grupo Penaflor S.A.

ED Edmundo Cabernet Sauvignon 2019

Bright #argentina #cabernetsauvignon with strong bramble fruit character. Uncorking reveals a lot of vanilla from oak aging but extended decanting mostly airs this off leaving some cocoa and fruit aromas. Deliciously bright acidity on the palate, semisweet chocolate and medium roast coffee notes leading into generous tannins that linger in the finish. Outstanding QPR here for $8.50 at Total Wine. — 5 months ago

The Prestige

Apasamiento Malbec Syrah 2018

Quite interesting dried grape #malbec #syrah #argentina blend. The wine was tight right after opening with uncouth iron/metallic flavors but a day or two in the wine fridge transformed it. Stewed plum, raisins and a nice peppery foundation on the nose, juicy acidity, continued black pepper, earthy fruit and medium tannins on a longer finish. Stout, spicy wine that stood up well to chili and tomato sauce pizza. #wsjwineclub — 10 months ago

The first time I tasted this #argentinian wine #argentina I found the #tannic tannins too rough, but blind tasting it I found it to be outstanding. The mind and the eyes are very suggestive. deep ruby, medium+ aromas of black fruits (cassis, plum and blackberries) herbal (black tea, earl gray tea and capsicum), secondary aromas of Oak (cedar, sandalwood and cinnamon) and tertiary aromas of leather. On the palate it’s dry, medium acidity, high alcohol and full bodied long finish smooth fine grained tannins — 2 years ago
