Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015 Product #31306 (In Stock)
Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015 Proemio Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2015

Here's a real winner in the "A Lot of Wine For The Money: Cab Division."  This is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon grown at 2,300 feet elevation, where plenty of sunshine ripens the fruit to rich perfection and cool night air locks in freshness and vibrancy.  You'll love the big Cabernet Sauvignon aromas of blackcurrant, cassis, tobacco, and chocolate.  In the mouth, it's ripe and densely packed with currant, cherry, black raspberry spice and chocolate flavors.  There's a nice herb and chocolate complexity here, but the fruit really holds center stage.  Big enough for steak or lamb, but easygoing enough to just drink at a party or on the deck, this is outstanding value in rich, drinkable, Cab.

Proemio Malbec Mendoza 2015 Product #31336 (In Stock)
Proemio Malbec Mendoza 2015 Proemio Malbec Mendoza 2015

Yes, 2015 was a great vintage across much of the wine world, but in Argentina, growers had to work hard to capture quality and ripeness in a year of alternating heat and rain.  At Proemio, they nailed it with this fresh and fruit-filled Malbec that went straight to bottle with zero time in oak.  You'll find Mendoza Malbec's signature aromas and flavors of black cherry, red raspberry, baked strawberry, fresh herb and savory spice here with very fine sweetness of fruit and a clear, palate-cleansing, tang on the smooth and supple finish.  A fine and fun party pour and even better with lamb kabobs or grilled veggies.

Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Product #31686 (In Stock)
Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016 Altosur Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza 2016

Altosur - "High in the South" - wines are grown at 1,200 meters and higher elevations, giving them a fine purity and finesse to go with the bold Mendoza fruit. From estate grown fruit and with a few months barrel aging, this is loaded with juicy currant and blackberry fruit framed by touches of chocolate and crushed herb.  Plenty of heft - no one will call this "light" - but no heaviness in a tasty, drink now and with anything, Cabernet Sauvignon value.

Tilia Cabernet Mendoza 2015 Tilia Cabernet Mendoza 2015

A very fine Cabernet value, this is plump with dark currant fruit and accents of chocolate and herb, finishing ripe and easier than the review suggests.  Nice stuff.

"The grapes for the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon were harvested at three different points of ripeness to achieve better balance and complexity. This usually has some Syrah from Barrancas in east Mendoza. There are varietal aromas, clearly herbal, perhaps a little blurry, in the shape of tobacco leaves, blackberries and a touch of spice. The palate is soft, with some dusty tannins giving it an austere profile."Wine Advocate 89 points

Tilia Malbec Mendoza 2016 Tilia Malbec Mendoza 2016

Catena's side project turns out value like nobody else! Fresh and easy drinking.

"The youthful and aromatic 2016 Malbec has an alcohol level that is one degree lower than the 2015, as the grapes where harvested earlier because of the problems with the vintage. This ended up being an advantage to produce a light and very drinkable Malbec, balsamic and aromatic, even minty with something that reminded me of basil leaves. The palate is similar to the 2015, a tad fresher, and even if they are very similar in style this 2016 is more exuberant in the aromas. A triumph over the vintage. A perfect introduction to Mendoza Malbec at a very attractive price."Wine Advocate 90 points

This is really good and sophisticated; tasted like $30.

"Dark bright red. Reticent aromas of bitter cherry, blackberry, raspberry, licorice and mocha. Sweet and fine-grained, with harmonious acidity framing and lifting the flavors of blackberry, raspberry, violet and menthol. A serious wine with a restrained sweetness. Finishes with smooth tannins and good breadth."  Vinous (Raynolds) 88 points

Every vintage, just another great wine from Nicolas and Laura Catena. Lightly oaked, very fresh, loaded with fruit.

"Bright gold-tinged yellow. Much deeper, riper and richer than the basic 2014 Mendoza Chardonnay, offering sweet stone fruit and apple flavors lifted by saline minerality. This dense Chardonnay shows glyceral warmth but finishes with noteworthy lift."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012 Product #31476 (In Stock)
Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012 Mendoza Vineyards MV Malbec Gran Reserva 2012

The new vintage of our best-selling Malbec ever is another winner!.  Everything about this wine is “super-premium” – the high-end oak, hand harvesting, low yields, even the packaging - 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 2012 Malbec Grand Reserve sourced from Lujan de Cuyo, aged for one year in French oak barrels, has aromas of incense, spices and black and red cherries. The medium-bodied palate shows a profusion of fine-grained tannins that coat your mouth. It has a classical, serious profile, with restraint and poise. Drink 2015-2019."Wine Advocate 90 points

Paul Hobbs second label from Argentina's Mendoza Valley is always one of the best Cabernet Sauvignon values you can find.  In 2014, it's once again a big, rich, wine with great texture and plenty of ripe fruit.

DV Catena Historico Tinto 2014 DV Catena Historico Tinto 2014

In the 1930s, Laura Catena's grandfather, Don Domingo Vicente, was famous for his dark, deep, powerhouse reds. Laura makes this wine in his honor, an intense blend of Malbec and Petit Verdot from high altitude vineyards.  It's explosively aromatic and flavored, with super-ripe raspberry and plum fruit wrapped in generous, rich, vanilla, sassafras, chocolate and herb.  The tannins are cloaked by the voluptuous fruit, making this delicious on its own and surprisingly able to age.

Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014 Product #31503 (In Stock)
Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014 Catena Malbec Mendoza La Consulta 2014

From a new line highlighting the unique character of different parts of Argentina's Mendoza Valley.  This is delicious and pure, especially with an hour of air. 

"From a lower part of Uco Valley, featuring cooler nights than Lunlunta as well as more clay in the soil. Bright red-ruby. Initially reduced nose cleared to reveal cassis and cocoa powder aromas lifted by a floral high note. Very ripe and nicely sweet, but with well-integrated acidity and soil salinity giving the wine a light touch. Winemaker Vigil told me he did more carbonic fermentation for Malbec in 2014 as he wanted less extraction, but this is still in a firmly tannic style--not to mention backward for a wine made this way."  Vinous (Tanzer) 91 points

Tinto Negro Malbec Limestone Block Mendoza 2013 Product #31788 (In Stock)

Cannot recommend this savory, complex, Malbec co-fermented with 7% Cabernet Franc highly enough.  "Lovely mineral pungency to the aromas of blackberry, licorice and violet. Sweet and shapely, with a welcoming creaminess of texture leavened by harmonious acidity. Broad dark berry flavors are lifted by enticing mineral and floral components. Nicely balanced, fine-grained wine with chewy, ripe tannins and excellent breadth and length. Lovely delineation and energy here, no doubt due to the presence of limestone in the soil."

"The 2013 Malbec Limestone Block is sourced from the south of the Uco Valley, in San Carlos and Altamira, selected from places where there’s a higher content of chalk, usually in the stonier soils. It is co-fermented with a small quantity of Cabernet Franc (7-8%). The wine feels serious and well-balanced, with notes of ripe red and black fruits, a fresh herbal note, a mineral feeling and a medium-bodied palate with fine-grained tannins and good balance. It should age well. Drink 2014-2020.:Wine Advocate 90 points

Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014 Catena Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo 2014

A GREAT burger Cab, this is loaded with rich fruit and spice in a plushly textured wine that finishes with a deep chew of ripe fruit.

"From vines planted in 1973; cropped at one cluster per shoot. Bright, dark red. Ripe yet cool aromas of cassis, licorice and menthol. Supple, spicy and slightly medicinal; in a rather Old World style for a Catena wine but still with lovely fruit sweetness. The deep clay soil stayed cool in 2014 but the fruit was not affected by rot, according to Vigil. Began a bit clenched, with the acids and tannins out of sync, but harmonized nicely as it opened in the glass."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2013 Mendel Malbec Mendoza 2013

"This wine has balance and finesse with blueberry, blackberry and some walnut character. Full body, fine tannins and a beautiful finish. Drink or hold."  James Suckling 93 points

"The 2013 Malbec is produced with the grapes from an ungrafted vineyard planted in 1928 in Mayor Drummond in Luján de Cuyo at some 980 meters altitude and another one in Perdriel. After hand-sorting the grapes, the wine macerated in 50- and 80-hectoliter tanks for three weeks. It matured in a combination of new, second- and third-use French oak barrels for 12-14 months. It has a lactic nose intermixed with aromas of flowers and fresh fruit. 2013 was a cooler year and the fruit had more malic acid, which might be the explanation for the lactic character I found here. It's also more floral and shows less aromas of plums so often found in warmer vintages. The medium-bodied palate shows good balance and is juicy with sweet tannins that make it very accessible. You feel the hand of a winemaker in this textbook Malbec. It should go an extra mile in bottle with the freshness of the year. 60,000 bottles produced."Wine Advocate 92 points

Less plush than in some years, but still deeply ripe and loaded with flavor.  For big grilled meat!

"Saturated bright ruby. Sexy aromas of violet, blackberry and licorice, plus oaky torrefaction notes of bitter chocolate and espresso. Floral, firmly built and nicely delineated; still a bit youthfully tight but boasts lovely energy and definition. Again, there's no easy sweetness here. This savory, firmly tannic wine has the spine for mid-term drinking."  Vinous (Tanzer) 90 points

"A ripe and rich red with light jammy fruit, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Very drinkable and enjoyable now." James Suckling 91 points
