Community Tasting Notes 4

  • br_winelover Likes this wine: 93 points

    August 28, 2021 - 93pts. Tasted with fscov. This was the biggest surprise of the night - at half the price, it offered the same level of complexity and length of a Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino. Although it is a blend, this smells and tastes like a pure Malbec, even though 35% of it comes from other varietals.

    It is still a bit primary, but there is no need of further cellaring, although it can be left to rest for some 5+ years. I got notes of black cherries, blackberries, and plum. It spent 16 months in barrel, but there is very little oak - its management was well done. Velvety tannins and a medium finish. I'll probably get more in the next couple months, so I promise to revisit it soon.

    February 8, 2021 - Blackberry, cassis and prune aromas are ripe on the nose. Black plum, earthy berry and spice flavors finish with density and power on the palate, while fine tannins lead a tasty finish to this Malbec blend.

    January 23, 2021 - Blend de Malbec (65), Cabernet Sauvignon (14), Cabernet Franc (10), Merlot (6) y Petit Verdot (5).

    Crianza en barricas de roble francés durante 16 meses.

    El corcho había filtrado pero el vino estaba bien! 😅

    Mucha fruta negra y algunas notas especiadas. Muy complejo y elegante aunque lo encontré un poco liviano en boca.

    November 12, 2019 - This malbec dominant bordeaux blend left much to be desired. Reticent nose of macerated cherry and smoke. Quite vegetal and sour on the palate with a lack of definition. Would not repurchase.
