Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2012 Product #28632 (In Stock)
Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2012 Bodegas Monteviejo Festivo Torrontes 2012

A delicious, exotic, and wild Torrontes that somehow retains enough focus and control to work with food, too. It's a bit like a cross between Muscat (exotic fruit and floral notes) and Gewurztraminer (ginger and warm spice) with loads of peach and mango at the core.  Lovely sweetness to the fruit flavors and fine acidity to balance the lite residual sugar at the end.  Exciting stuff!

Gouguenheim Malbec 2013 Product #28021 (In Stock)
Gouguenheim Malbec 2013 Gouguenheim Malbec 2013

A ripe, meaty, Malbec that will work at table or on it's own.  100% Malbec pleasure with almost no wood influence. Pretty aromas of black berries, spice, lavender and red licorice lead to smooth, rich, flavors of blackberry and blueberry and a lash of coffee and smoky spice.  An easy drinker that has more meaty heft going on than you'd expect for the price.  Bet this would sing with steak rubbed with coffee and ancho chile!

Bodegas Monteviejo Malbec Festivo 2012 Product #28581 (In Stock)
Bodegas Monteviejo Malbec Festivo 2012 Bodegas Monteviejo Malbec Festivo 2012

A lot more serious fun than most Malbec in this price range, it's soft enough to sip and deep enough to love rich food.  This vintage is a bit darker and jammier than the last, but it still finishes clean thanks to the firm structure.  No oak, but plenty of spice and fine-grained tannin.

Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec Tupungato 2013 Product #29129 (In Stock)
Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec Tupungato 2013 Zorzal Terroir Unico Malbec Tupungato 2013

The big Wine Advocate rating may understate the quality of this remarkable, fresh, Malbec.  No oak, but loads of flavor - fruit, mineral, spice - and a wonderfully creamy texture.  A great choice for after work sipping and to enjoy with a huge range of foods – everything from burgers to Indian food can work here! 

"Zorzal is a young winery, created in 2008 with the objective of showing the terroir of Gualtallary, Tupungato in the Uco Valley, where the vineyards are located at 1,350 meters altitude and the soils are alluvial with granite and calcium carbonate. The 2013 Terroir Unico Malbec is unoaked and sourced from a special vineyard close to the winery, planted in poor soil. The code name they use internally to identify the wine is “chalk.” It does have a strong sense of minerality and the pure character of the Malbec, with fresh floral notes (violets), pungent aromatic herbs (lavender), and a spicy twist. The palate is very fluid, with tension. This is pure Malbec juice such that I had not experienced before. Unbelivable quality for the price! Drink 2014-2018."Wine Advocate 92 points

Zorzal Terroir Unico Pinot Noir Tupungato 2013 Product #29310 (In Stock)
Zorzal Terroir Unico Pinot Noir Tupungato 2013 Zorzal Terroir Unico Pinot Noir Tupungato 2013

Always good with a Wine Advocate Pinot Noir review ends with, "Can the price be real?"  It's 100% Pinot Noir with no oak and oodles of ripe Pinot fruit flavors and a juicy, fresh, finish.  Fantastic value.

"The 2013 Terroir Unico Pinot Noir follows the idea of the Terroir Unico range, to show the pure expression of the grape and the place in a line of unoaked wines. This was 20-30% whole-cluster fermented and is very pale colored, almost a rose, very perfumed, with aromas of red fruit and flowers opening to a light to medium-bodied palate, high acidity (blood orange), and a pure, fresh finish. Highly drinkable. Can the price be real? Drink 2014-2016."Wine Advocate 91 points

Sur De Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2010 Product #29211 (In Stock)
Sur De Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2010 Sur De Los Andes Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva 2010

Wine Enthusiast had this pegged as a $38 wine, and certainly it has that level of effort and expense behind it.  The 100% Cabernet Sauvignon fruit came from some of the best sites in Mendoza, all grown without fertilizers, herbicides or insecticides.  The hand harvested fruit is sorted in the vineyard and then again on a modern sorting table in the winery before fermenting in tank with all natural yeast (no cultured yeast added).  The wine then rests and mellows for 15 months in small French oak barrels, including 30% second use and a whopping 70% new - a luxury that makes sense for a $30+ wine but is very rare in the under $20 space.  Then, perhaps the biggest luxury of all, it got another two years development in bottle to let the youthful Cabernet structure resolve and the rich, dark, fruit come to the fore.

“Layered berry and cassis aromas are a bit scratchy and gritty. This Cabernet feels saturated, pure and deep; flavors of blackberry, cassis, prune and chocolate are ripe and generous, while the finish is mildly herbal in flavor, with good length and build. Drink through 2018.” Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Sur De Los Andes Malbec Cabernet Premium 2010 Product #29210 (In Stock)
Sur De Los Andes Malbec Cabernet Premium 2010 Sur De Los Andes Malbec Cabernet Premium 2010

This was supposed to be a $24 “Premium” red, and we certainly found enough in the bottle and the enthusiastic critical reviews to support that price. Like most of our Mendoza favorites, it’s a blend of Malbec (for lush, opulent, fruit) and Cabernet Sauvignon (for structure and class).  Sustainable farming - no herbicides or fertilizers, natural spring water irrigation - hand harvesting, double sorting on vibrating tables, and up to a year in French oak (20% new), and a little extra time in bottle before release all sound like a recipe for great wine and big prices.

No idea why the price dropped to this level, but it’s a flat-out steal.  It’s a  blockbuster steakhouse Malbec/Cabernet blend that’s loaded with black fruit, licorice, and spice over firm, dusty, tannins.  Anyone who wants a serious steak wine for a not very serious price would do way to snap up some of this before everyone else catches on and the price pops back up to where it’s supposed to be.

“Intense mineral and berry aromas show class and touches of mint and resiny wood. This feels crisp, electric and drawing, while flavors of graphite, mint, raw oak, vanilla, plum and raspberry run onto a lightly herbal, medium-length finish. Drink this tightly wound, fresh young blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot now through 2020.”Wine Enthusiast 91 points

Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2011 Product #29371 (In Stock)
Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2011 Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2011

Everything about this wine is “super-premium” – except the price!  Made to sell for $60 in the US, a change in distribution created this amazing opportunity to enjoy top-shelf luxury at a very nice, everyday, price.

“I was very impressed with this set of wines produced by a company that owns no vineyards, but sources grapes from selected locations in Mendoza. The 2011 Malbec Grand Reserve, aged for 20 months in new Nadalie barrels, smells of leather, forest floor, dill and paprika over a core of cherries in liqueur not unlike some traditional Riojas (from Spain, not from Argentina). The palate is medium-bodied, with some grippy tannins, good acidity and length. This wine calls for food. Drink 2014-2018.” Wine Advocate 92 points

Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 Product #28592 (In Stock)
Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013 Catena Chardonnay Mendoza 2013

Always a delicious value, the 2013 Catena Chardonnay may just be the best ever - and that's saying something for a wine that scores 90-93 points pretty much every year.  A blend of oaked and tank-aged wine, it crackles with fantastic fresh apple, pear, peach and pineapple fruit framed by notes of crushed mint and toasted hazlenut.  The vivid fruit pumps on through the juicy finish where Burgundy-like minerality and creamy toast notes linger.  Fantastic stuff.

Bodegas Monteviejo Lindaflor Petite Fleur 2010 Product #28201 (In Stock)
Bodegas Monteviejo Lindaflor Petite Fleur 2010 Bodegas Monteviejo Lindaflor Petite Fleur 2010

A serious, dark, Malbec blend with notes of chocolate and superb concentration.  Needs air and big meant now.  This is great value.

"The 2010 Petite Fleur is a blend of 50% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Syrah and 10% Merlot cropped at nine tons per acre. It has a ripe bouquet of creme de cassis, marmalade and blood orange that could be overbearing, but it is undeniably nicely controlled. The palate is medium-bodied with a gentle grip on the entry. It has superb weight of fruit, while the finish is powerful yet elegant, with Asian spices, dark cherry and dried orange peel lingering on the aftertaste. Drink 2013-2018."Wine Advocate 90 points

Angulo Innocenti Malbec La Consulta 2012 Product #28301 (In Stock)
Angulo Innocenti Malbec La Consulta 2012 Angulo Innocenti Malbec La Consulta 2012

A big Malbec that stays poised and focused, with half the wine raised in tank for freshness.

"The opaque purple-colored 2012 Malbec is a big (14.5% natural alcohol), 1,800-case cuvee that spent time in both neutral tanks (50%) and oak (50%). It reveals some spicy oak notes along with a big, sweet kiss of blackberry and black raspberry fruit as well as hints of camphor and white flowers. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied, lush, opulent Malbec to enjoy over the next 4-5 years, perhaps longer."Wine Advocate 91 points

Felino Vina Cobos (Paul Hobbs) Cabernet Sauvingon 2013 Felino Vina Cobos (Paul Hobbs) Cabernet Sauvingon 2013

As Wine Advocate says, Paul Hobbs’s “Felino label has for a number of years been synonymous with value.”  Another fine vintage for this big, lush, Argentine Cabernet that’s jam-packed with black fruit, chocolate, spice, and tobacco aromas and flavors.  Lush and plush and nicely concentrated, this is great with a steak or just to sip.

"This shows such beautiful fruit with currant, walnut and light chocolate character. Full body, with firm tannins and a fruity finish. Reserve and balanced. "  James Suckling 91 points

"An intense red, showing concentrated flavors of dark plum, kirsch, dried beef and baker's chocolate flanked by notes of tobacco leaf and ginger. The powerful finish is filled with sanguine details. Drink now through 2020."Wine Spectator 90 points
