Sommelier Journal

  • By Catherine Fallis, MS, ACWP
    December 2009, (See more on Sommelier Journal...)

    (Bodegas O. Fournier Alfa Crux, Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina) Alfa Crux is this winery’s premier line, named after one of the stars of the Southern Cross. The wines are made from individually selected barrels, aged in new oak for 18 months and in bottle for an additional 12 months before release. This blend of 50% Tempranillo, 30% Malbec, and 20% Merlot has notes of mocha, cherry, cassis, rose petal, and smoke. It is rich, complex, and understated, with beautiful balance and a long finish. The 2005 is also on the market, but is still very young and closed. O. Fournier is a benchmark producer and, though less recognized in this market than Catena, a must-have for your wine list.
