    Solid and balanced Cabernet Sauvignon with just the right amounts of fruit, oak and spice. The only glaring flaw is insufficient acidity, though I suppose relatively lower vineyard elevations may be a factor. Lovely cherry, spice, minerality, with thoughtful use of oak.

    A really impressive blend that involves Tempranillo in the leading role. The berry and spice from the Malbec and Temp. really come through and the Syrah lends some body and grip. Smoke and spice from the oak maturation add a welcome extra dimension that isn't overwhelming. The slightly cooler Uco area turns out some great Tempranillo and some really distinctive Malbec. Delicious with roasted/grilled meats.

    Very serious malbec for the price, though it comes as no surprise that it's crafted by Dominio del plata. This is a great example to bring to someone who may have not been impressed by malbec at a lower price point. The budini has more spice and depth than many other examples that cost almost twice as much.

    Even if not in my favorite style, this is the type of thing that put Lujan de cuyo and by extension, Argentina on the map in the first place. I like the lovely cedar and blackberry fruit, as well as the concentration and balance. Again, it's a very good Cabernet and it's important to try something like this before moving on to a more progressive style that doesn't try obsessively to emulate the medoc.

    Easily the best Mendoza Pinot Noir I've ever tried, and I'm not surprised it's produced by La Posta. Everything the best Patagonian examples have: structure and balance, berry fruit, floral aspects and some forest-game. None of the New World, warmer weather overripe fruit in there, just a really elegant, even understated blend of the above elements.

    A very interesting and refreshing blend intended for enjoying sushi and sashimi that certainly carried out its function well, though I would have found the tree fruit and texture of a Godello or Verdejo a little bit more appropriate when considering the stated objective.

    Surprised with this one. I've had their larger format bottles for decent cooking sake and never thought more of the Sho Chiku Bai label. Polished fruit, floral and rice flavors with good body and smoothness. Could be a little bit more refined in terms of depth, though it delivered much more than expected.

    Balanced malbec with good fruit and spice, though the overall profile isn't that interesting. Very decent malbec to accompany a meal.

    I seriously need to locate a case or two of this Grenache, Carignan, Syrah blend. Beautiful nose, serious finesse of ripe black fruit, concentrated rocks and spice. This is the type of wine that I truly love, with minimal cellar intervention, maximum expression and concentration and no trace of new oak. The Gallets have another red, a white and a dessert wine, must locate all. http://bit.ly/d0J85L

    The best argentine Bonarda out there. The Altos guys understand the variety and turn out a nuanced example that brings out all of bonarda's hidden potential for finesse. Concentrated flavors of raspberry, plum, rocky minerality and a sophisticated sense of balance for the price point.
