Argentine Wine

Argentina is one of the top five wine-producing countries in the world. For a long time, most of the wine was made for local consumption. But in the past quarter-century, an increasing number of vintners began making very serious releases with the most widely planted red grape, Malbec. These made a big splash on the international scene, winning awards, garnering high ratings and amassing enthusiastic disciples. Torrontes is the star indigenous white grape, now on many restaurant menus for its refreshing, aromatic qualities and affordability. An increasing number of international grapes are grown, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. All styles of wine are made from dry whites and reds, rosés, sparkling, late harvest sweet wines and fortified wines.

Argentina boasts an impressive number of wine-makers under the age of thirty-five, and a growing number of women innovating the field. This is a country that has learned that investing quality and Read more »

I love life outdoor and wine. I have travelled a lot trying to understand the influence of soil over wine quality. It is amazing.

  • Alfa Crux Malbec 2004


    A heavy-bodied wine that the sommelier said would age well and stay deep & rich. It's not for the faint of heart - but I guess none of the wines that I like are. Read More

  • Tilia Merlot Mendoza 2007


    This is a solid wine, in my opinion. For someone that likes fuller, stronger wines with more structure, this is a great wine. As Merlot goes, this may be a step away from the varietal, but in a good direction. Read More

  • Bodega Enrique Foster Malbec Ique 2004


    This is a malbec from Mendoza that will change one's mind of what malbec from this area is all about. Talk about a wonderful seperation of flavor and balanced medium body. The breakdown (in my geeky head) goes like this: Deep red hue with subtle reflective acidity transparency. The nose is earth and and smooth dark fruit with hints of oak that ... Read More

  • Viña Cobos Malbec Felino 2006


    Nice surprise! I was expecting little and was pleasantly surprised. The body is luscious (the wine is VERY unfiltered), and the fruit is all over the place, mingling with some nice earthy notes and sweet vanilla..The balance is impeccable and had a nice length for the price point. Read More

  • Lorca Fantasia Malbec 2006


    Not a lot to write home about. This is a simple, unoffensive malbec. Very soft and round, forward fruit and no complexities. I had this wine with pizza and it worked well both with the pesto and pepperoni.Not a memorable experience, but it was a gift, so nothing wrong with free wine. Read More
