for this region?

Agrelo is a small wine region within Mendoza in the Cuyo province of Argentina. It centers around the town of the same name. It is situated at the Mendoza river at the foot of the Andes. Vineyards are at high elevations, which ensures optimal sun exposure and grape acid/sugar balance. The grape varietals produced are the typical popular Mendoza varietals such as Torontes, Viognier, Chardonnay, and Sauvignon Blanc for whites. Reds consist of Bonarda, Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. Many of the wineries here are boutique operations focused on quality viticulture.

  • Finca Decero Petit Verdot Agrelo Remolinos Vineyard 2009

    Snoothrank:

    When first poored into decanter, smelled like freshly baked blackberry cobbler. After 1 hour decant, smell of fruit was more subtle, accompanied by some earthiness. On the palate, core of subdued fruit along with minerals, spices, forest floor and cigar box. Medium to full bodied, definitely not over-extracted. The smokey, peppery, spicey finish... Read More

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Agrelo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The Catena Zapata Malbec Argentino 2008 shows a saturated dark violet color; the nose offers cassis, mocha and clove, along with a strong suggestion of soil tones. It combines density and sweetness on the one hand, with gripping, lightly saline flavors of tobacco, dark berries, spices and minerals; a palate-staining finish dominated by sweet bla... Read More

  • Bodegas Y Viñedos Hugo Y Eduardo Pulenta Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo Estate 2008

    Snoothrank:

    A lighter and less concentrated selection, bucking the trend for Mendoza cabernet, this wine begins with a vegetal bouquet of white asparagus and bell pepper. In the mouth it's smooth, tart, and clean, with sweet apple flavors riding on red currants - the product of some very specific winemaking choices, and an intriguing alternative to blockbus...

  • Chakana Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Ever stick your nose in a glass only to be confronted with rich tomato sauce - the kind some folks call gravy - with hints of seafood? Frutti di mare in a glass, anyone? These uncanny aromas continue, if modestly, in the mouth, where those tomatoes turn into sweet jam and the nautical note just lingers. You can guess the food pairings already fo... Read More

  • Finca Decero Winery Malbec Remolinos Vineyard 2010

    Snoothrank:

    The epitome of Mendoza malbec, from the acrid coffee-and-ink nose to the dark plum flavor buoyed by a welcome sweetness and then dispatched with just enough acid. No fruit bombs here, just malbec done right. (AV 91, http://argovino.com/?p=1188) Read More
