2012 Haras de Pirque "Hussonet" Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva Maipo Valley Top Pick!
2012 Haras de Pirque "Hussonet" Cabernet Sauvignon Gran Reserva Maipo Valley

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of lemon rind, spice, sweet tobacco and hints of currants. Full to medium body, fine tannins and a fresh finish. Light spicy aftertaste to this. Drink now." (5/2016) K&L Notes: While the 2011 vintage Hussonet took everyone by storm, we believe the 2012 vintage, with its greater volume, added structure and superior balance, to be even better. Simply put, there are few under $10 Cabs that deliver the true varietal character, subtle savory nuances and overall balance that this one does. Highly recommended.

2015 Noemia de Patagonia "A Lisa" Malbec Rio Negro Top Pick!
2015 Noemia de Patagonia "A Lisa" Malbec Rio Negro

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 A Lisa is mostly Malbec with some 9% Merlot and a 1% pinch of Petit Verdot, a wine that shows the potential of Río Negro in Patagonia and the style of Noemía at a very attractive price and at the same time is easy to drink. 2015 seems to be an excellent vintage in the region, and this wine, which only saw 30% of its volume in neutral, well-seasoned oak barrels while the rest was kept in stainless steel for some nine months, shows a balance and freshness that can compete with the fines vintages produced.

2014 Tapiz "Alta Collection" Cabernet Sauvignon Mendoza

Give it four to five years bottle age. Great wine." (5/2016) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "Cabernet’s spice and mint notes mix here with deep cassis flavor. It’s tender, with enough depth for long-cooked meat and with tense acidity from its Andean origen in San Pablo, one of the highest areas planted to vines in Valle de Uco."

It fermented in stainless steel, barriques and concrete amphorae where it's kept with lees for four months, which represents the essence of what Matetic Sauvignon Blanc is about: citric, salty, with a balanced palate and good persistence.

2016 Gen del Alma "Ji Ji Ji" Malbec/Pinot Noir Gualtallary (Previously $18)

Some 10% of the grapes were harvested early to provide freshness. It fermented slowly with neutral bayanus yeasts for some 35 days and lots of fine lees and was bottled without malolactic in the month of June.

This feels quite complete and balanced, with good ripeness while keeping the balance and poise. The palate is juicy and fresh, with fine-grained tannins and a bittersweet finish akin to sour cherries. Very tasty and long. Super.

(KM, Web-2016)" K&L Notes: The Elsa Malbec comes from Valentin Bianchi's Doña Elsa estate in the cool reaches of San Rafael, Mendoza. With just a kiss of French oak, the rich fruit dominates this easy-drinking red, which has barely-there tannins. Invoke your inner-Argentine and drink this alongside grilled flank steak with a garlicky chimichurri. Many previous vintages recommended by Wine Enthusiast as a "Best Buy."

2014 La Posta del Viñatero "Pizzella Vineyard" Malbec Mendoza

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Malbec Pizzella Vineyard is from Altamira. The vineyard was originally 17 hectares and the owner planted an additional 12 (and is planting yet more), so there is room to grow. This is the most harmonious, elegant, and at the same time backward, of the three single-vineyard Malbecs. Not as showy as the others in the palate either as the tannins are austere and the chalky minerality sticks to your teeth. The differences between the three Malbecs is clear as they each reflect where the grapes grow. The riper, warmer one from Ugarteche, the fresher, ...Read More »

This is the first vintage where the Malbec takes half of the blend, as they want to increase the Mendoza/Argentina character of the wine reducing the more herbal varieties.

2013 De Martino "Legado" Cabernet Sauvignon-Malbec Maipo Valley (Previously $20)

De Martino has arguably undergone one of the more radical transformations the wine world has seen in the past five years. The second largest owner of organic vineyards in Chile, with 740 acres in production, De Martino is stepping up to the plate in other ways as well: the winery is 100% carbon neutral and beginning in 2011 they have stopped purchasing new oak barrels. That year they purchased 140 tinajas, the traditional Chilean clay vessels that resemble amphorae, in varying shapes and sizes. Their "Legado" series aims to highlight some of the winery's...

2016 Viña Cobos "Felino" Chardonnay Mendoza

A rich, ripe, fairly classic Chardonnay with old school California leanings except...this one is from Argentina! The California connection here is that noted consultant and winery owner Paul Hobbs owns Viña Cobos, and is making wines that have his stylistic stamp, but perhaps just slightly dialed back from the usual ripeness and fruitiness. Here we have an appley Chardonnay, with hints of toast (5% of the wine is aged in French oak, a small portion of which is new) and a genuinely crowd pleasing style. Very well made.

2014 Zorzal Eggo "Tinto de Tiza" Mendoza

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Eggo Tinto de Tiza is a blend from three different vineyards in Tupungato Winelands in Gualtallary. It's a blend of mostly Malbec with some Cabernet Franc and Cabernet Sauvignon. As is the case with the whole Eggo range, the wine didn't see any oak, and in this case it was matured in egg-shaped cement vats for one year. There are violets, plums, dark cherries and something earthy. This is slightly riper than the 2013. The medium-bodied palate has is fresh with a silky texture, pure flavors and a mineral-driven finish. At this price I'd buy it by ...Read More »

2013 Aleph Semillon Mendoza

San Francisco resident Roberto Rodriguez Canal is the mind behind Aleph, a winery whose wines we have truly enjoyed carrying over the past several years. According to Roberto: "We do not produce wine to please mass demand. Our wines are not over extracted and definitely not over oaked, we produce limited quantity of wine with its own character." Aleph Semillon uses fruit from a 70 year old vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo. On the palate, this shows nicely dry, but with a citric, waxy yellow fruited quality. Stone fruits and melons as well, with the clean fl... Read More »
