Community Tasting Notes 78

    January 1, 2018 - 86: The bottom half of the cork distintegrated, which necessitated filtration and the resulting aeration; however, the wine did not appear to have been adversely affected. Fruit-forward with oaky overtones and an abbreviated finish. Modest tannins. Disappointing lack of identifiable Argentine terroir, but possibly more drinkable (more appealing to a wider audience) for it. Based on the cork situation, strongly suggest drinking now if you still have a bottle of 2007.

    October 5, 2017 - Consumed over 2 days (vacuvined), note from day 2. Nose: Medium expressiveness, blueberry, cranberry, and prune fruit with saddle leather and bubblegum notes. Palate: Medium-full bodied, ripe dark red and blue fruit attack, acid driven mid-palate lift, where Asian spice and earthy notes join in, the back-end is dominated by Asian spice, earth, and slightly over-ripe ripe fruit which persist through a 30-45 second finish. My last of 4 bottles, the first 3 being consumed in the 2012-2014 time frame, would have to say this is currently in the back-half of it's drinking window showing a definite fading of the fruit versus previous visits, though the remaining tertiary flavors are still enjoyable for the moment.

    March 3, 2016 - Nice licorice bound fruit. Very smooth at this point, some primary tannins left. Classy oak. Good balanced ripeness. Nice spice

    (MALBEC Luca) Mendoza Dear Friends, A quick weekend offer to satisfy backed up requests for Argentina’s Luca (a winery we normally don’t carry). I apologize to all of you that have waited for an offer (2-3 years?) but better late than never.... Both of the wines below are at terrific prices (under market) and both have been quite favorably received by the public – I would check community notes as well. The Beso de Dante is EXTREMELY LIMITED at this price: 2007 Luca Malbec (Mendoza) - (this is not the Laborde Double Select – that is quite a bit lower in price) 2005 Luca Beso de Dante (Mendoza) - (only 175 cases produced and the wine is getting better with time – I think Tanzer’s score is conservative circa late 2010 – would be excellent blind wine fodder - JR) Please give us your maximum number up to 12 x Malbec and 3 x Beso de Dante and we will allocate accordingly To order: niki@garagistewine.com Both are set to arrive in a week or two. Please check OARS for local pick up after October 15th. Both will ship during the Fall shipping season (late). Out of state orders will be held for free under ideal storage conditions (56 degrees/70%humidity) until shipping is possible. Locals may pick up at their leisure. For current local pick up and arrival/ship information, please see your OARS link below (at the bottom of this offer) - don’t know how to access your OARS? Simply click the link and see your account. You can also paste the link into your browser. If you are having trouble with your link or your account, please contact: support@garagistewine.com NO SALES TO RETAILERS OR WHOLESALERS Thank you, Jon Rimmerman Garagiste Seattle, WA Click here to view the status of your orders in O.A.R.S.
