Pale straw yellow colour; intense peachy/grassy, slightly tropical nose; dry on the palate, with citrusy/peach fruit flavours, herbal notes, moderate acidity and finish.
Product SKU: 719758
Beautiful deep purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, full bodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish. This wine really unfolds with some air so try not to slurp it down in a rush, and it shows why the Argentine people are in love with Malbec. Some Bonarda was blended in for greater complexity and to achieve better balance. Pairs well with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.

Deliciously ripe and concentrated, but with great underlying freshness, thanks to a briary edge that frames the blackberry, black cherry and licorice notes. There's a long, incense-tinged finish. Drink now through 2013. 670 cases made.

A finished barrel sample of the 2004 Poesia, a 2,000-case blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon (from a vineyard planted in 1935), reveals great potential. Its deep purple color is accompanied by a sumptuous perfume of white chocolate interwoven with blackberries, cassis, spice box, and flowers. With great density, beautiful precision, and a long, medium to full-bodied finish revealing decent acidity as well as impressive purity, it should drink well for 12-14 years.

The world's most talented oenologist has just released his first premium Argentine red. Called Yacochuya (pronounced Yak-co-chew-ya), this 100% old vine (60 years) Malbec comes from a mountainside vineyard situated at 2,470 meters! The 1999 Yacochuya has an opaque purple color, and a sensational bouquet of licorice, blue and blackberry jam intermixed with charcoal and spice. The wine is full-bodied, dense, and thick, with vibrant acidity for definition. This is a stunning Malbec. Anticipated maturity: now-2015.

The 2008 Chardonnay was aged for 9 months in seasoned French oak with 10% of the wine also seeing time in new oak. Medium straw-colored, it has a pleasant aromatic array of toast, baked apple, and pear. Medium-bodied, on the palate it has a smooth texture, ripe flavors, and good balance. More concentration would have resulted in a higher score but this is a solid effort for its humble price point.

The 2011 is a classic Malbec, but undoubtedly Layer Cake. Big, brooding, black fruit, then rich earth, truffles and dark cocoa are at the front. The Sea of Stones vineyard is at its core, always evident with the thread of minerality that the deep alluvial cobblestones lend. This wine is so elegant in the mouth with fresh-picked blackberries, simmering chocolate sauce on the stove, and somewhere someone's cooking bacon … so many layers, so little time.
Product SKU: 80986
The wine is medium-bodied with loads of spicy black fruit components, smoke character, peppercorns, spice box, tobacco and some phenolic licorice notes. The midpalate is fine with good tannin structure, and the finish is a pleasant, lingering one with just a touch of wild cherry juice on it

The 2007 Passo Doble is a blend of Malbec and Corvina (a grape found primarily in Italy's Veneto) made in the Ripasso method. Purple-colored, the wine has an excellent bouquet of jammy black cherry and blackberry liqueur. Forward and easy going, this tasty effort should drink well for several years and pair well with southern Italian cuisine.

Aged 12 months in small oak barrels this reserve Malbec has abundant berry aromas with sweet spices, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, savoury hints and an earthy core. There is gobs of fruit on the palate - it is very approachable and supple with similar ripe berry, espresso and toasted oak flavours. Nice lushness in the mouth and a long, smooth roasted coffee finish.

The 2010 Pulenta Gran Cabernet Franc is pure Cabernet Franc and has in-your-face aromas of bell pepper and green asparagus, like a Chinon from a cold vintage. The palate is medium-bodied, with very refined tannins and great balance, intense flavors and a long finish. A well-crafted wine that has a marked style, that won’t be universally accepted. If you like the style, go for it! Drink 2014-2020.

The 2006 Brote Negro is 100% Malbec but of a particular type that the winery believes is a mutation in their 100-year-old Malbec vineyard. These grapes are picked separately after the harvest of the regular Malbec. They are aged in 50% new French oak for 14-16 months. Opaque purple/black in color, it offers up a brooding bouquet of balsam wood, underbrush, lavender, black cherry, and blueberry compote. On the palate notes of licorice, raisins, cinnamon, and raspberry make an appearance. Dense and rich, this full-flavored, totally hedonistic wine is a contender for Argentina’s best Malbec.
Product SKU: 731078
The 2006 Cuarzo, a blend of 95% Petit Verdot with the balance equal parts Grenache Noir and Carignan, spent 16 months in a mix of new and used French oak. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it offers up a brooding bouquet of pencil lead, espresso, mineral, earth notes, underbrush, and blackberry. This is a dense effort that manages to be relatively light on its feet. There is plenty of structure under the layers of fruit and a minimum of 5-7 years of cellaring is advised. It will be fascinating to retry this beast in another 8-10 years.

Good intensity of red color with different tones of violet. Fruity and
spicy. This wine delights with aromas of blackberries, blueberries,
cassis and sour cherries. Fragrances of pepper, mocha coffee and
licorice flavors accompany a pleasant mineral character. A very
structured, complex and elegant Cabernet Sauvignon with powerful
yet refined tannins. A wine with velvety texture and a long finish.

The immediate impression are those characteristic savory, almost pungent, almost piquant, notes. Smooth and ripe on the palate, there’s a sensation of coated black fruits. Tannins underneath the fruits dry the finish, but overall the impression is quite glyceriny. There’s an openly delicious quality.
