Sipping Fine Wine

Deep Ruby with purple edges, aromas of red and black fruit with floral spice notes. On the palate rich ripe blackberry and plum with pepper spice and oak notes. Good balance, big ripe tannins, long finish ending with spicy zest. Better an hour after opening.

Laura Catena is in charge here. All hail a wine with an awesome woman with a wine heritage killing it! Super into this. Give it a minute or so to get a breath of air then appreciate its voluptuousness. It is supple and earthy and has an attitude. This Malbec may just have made me its bitch.

Muito bom vinho, frutado, taninos leves... aroma com notas de canela.

Enjoyed with roast lamb on Easter Sunday. Very robust red, a real assault on the senses.

A pedestrian commercial wine masquerading as a fine wine. The wine is dead and offers very little sense of involvement and conviction. It is “restrained” because there is very little material to restrain.

Dark fruit, light minerals and a slightly tart finish. Complex but easy to drink.

Spectacular depth of flavor. Silky plums and lovely umame notes
