Favorite of the tasting. Nice concentrated berries with a long finish. Interesting blend.
2007 Clos de los Siete Argentina, Mendoza, Valle de Uco
86 points
Disappointment of the night. Total oak bomb...overpowered the fruit. Loved the '06 which made it even more disappointing. The oak integrated slightly as the night went on but not what I was expecting.
2005 Santa Ema Merlot Reserva Chile, Maipo Valley
88 points
Surprise of the night. Interesting spicy nose, almost musky. Good fruit and smooth tannins. Great value.
2008 Bodegas Escorihuela Gascón Malbec Don Miguel Gascón Argentina, Mendoza
82 points
Muted nose. Nice fruit on the entry but this wine has the definition of a hollow mid palate. Just disappears. One can do much better...even at $12.
2006 Viña Santa Rita Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Chile, Maipo Valley
85 points
Decent cab for the price. Interesting green streak through the mid palate. A little boring.
