Deep garnet, almost purple, hue. Dense and dark. Some noticeable extraction. Toasted caramel, vanilla, black and red fruit, saddle leather, sage and vegetal notes on the nose. Fresh and fragrant. Nicely balanced on the palate. #napamalbec #malbecmalbec #merryvale #merryvalevineyards — 4 months ago
A sturdy mare. Mussel shell, blackberry mignonette, cedar cones, blueberries, rye toast, Parmesan crisps, chocolate and pencil shavings aswim in raspberry liqueur. Medium heavy mouthfeel on this swarthy beast. Tar, cedar bark and black currants with mocha espresso, thyme, allspice and graphite. Take this black beauty to the track for a few laps. #CuvelierLosAndes #LeovillePoyferré #Uco #ValledeUco #Argentineanwine #sawine #malbecmalbec #malbecsyrahblend — 3 years ago
Day 3: Big, black chocolate nose, with baked blackberry, black olives, and charred beef ribs charging from the glass. The floodgates have finally opened, and it was worth the wait! There is fresh cocoa bean pods and a jungle of flora; rosemary and iris extracts and an oatmeal raisin aspect to the perfuming.
Just the right texture for the pungent hothouse welcome: grippy and coarse, with a bitter chocolate and raspberry interplay, and a single unforgettable graphite and smoky slate backbone; unwavering in the churn of black currant, pepper, eucalyptus, leather and tobacco. Léoville Poyferré's high octane new world Malbec that puts a LOT of stick about! It also has an elegance, as all good dominatrixes should! You'll get a kick out of this! #LéovillePoyferré #bordeauxandburgers #argentinawine #Argentina #malbec #malbecmalbec #newworldmeetsoldworld #CuvelierLosAndes #andes #grandmalbec #ucovalley #uco #mendoza — 3 years ago
Inky, inky black color with rim to rim coverage. Dark melted chocolate with blackberries swimming, but less sweet than you are imagining. There is cinnamon, a caramelized, dehydrated plantain, almond extract, mocha grounds, and mahogany in abundance ethereally. Medium mouthfeel is the initial indicator of this wines pronounced balance, despite its varietal reputation. Dried currants, smoky, dry blackberry, cedar and a deep Madura tobacco and dusty cardamom, coriander and lavender with burnt citrus oils, and thick dark veils of iron and tallow suspended in smoking earth. It is hard to describe the dark, universe of beauty this wine embodies. Exceptional and profound.
