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.

  • Susana Balbo Signature Malbec Unspecified Argentina Argentina Mendoza Malbec Red Bottle-New Stock 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Begins with malbecs usual magic-marker ink and an underlying hint of musk, but the flavor itself is quite a contrast light and tart, with not much structure yet enough fruit to satisfy. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=409) Read More

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo Nicolás Catena Zapata 2008

    Snoothrank:

    A tantalizing bouquet of orange blossom, fine herbs, and wood smoke gives way to touch of sweetness and a bitter if not altogether unpleasant finish. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=159) Read More

  • Balbo Malbeck 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Showing a comely touch of age in the color, the bouquet is a wonderful mix of smoke, cedar, and stone fruits; in the mouth, it reveals layers of flavor, getting deeper and sweeter towards a clean finish. (AV 92, http://argovino.com/?p=378) Read More

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Cabernet Sauvignon Agrelo Alta Zapata Vineyard 2008

    Snoothrank:

    A class act, from the gorgeous violet shades in the glass, to the bouquet that alternates between orange blossoms and black cherry, through the subtle and velvety feel in the mouth, through to the unexpectedly sweet and jammy finish. This is not a barnburner cabernet, but its a smooth operator that would accompany subtly flavored meats with styl... Read More

  • Bodega Ruca Malén Malbec Blend Yauquén 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A good middle-of-the-road malbec, direct in its flavor with a fairly long finish a big improvement on earlier versions from this producer. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=203) Read More

  • Susana Balbo Crios Rose of Malbec Agrelo Mendoza 2011

    Snoothrank:

    The faint bouquet of nectarine doesnt give much away, but the bright red color does a luscious wine with attractive sweetness if not much structure follows, with lively strawberry notes towards the end, and theres that nectarine tang again. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=673) Read More

  • Susana Balbo Crios de Susana Balbo Rose of Malbec Agrelo Mendoza 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A deceptively powerful fruit bomb with a peach-pink color, cherry nose, and mouthful of strawberry jam, every bit as delicious as a good Cotes-de-Provence. (AV 87, http://argovino.com/?p=222) Read More

  • Chakana Malbec Agrelo Estate Selection 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Take a deep inhale of the bouquet and youre transported to a pine forest. In the mouth, the wine has a nice touch of strawberry jam and a fairly quick, clean finish. (AV 85, http://argovino.com/?p=467) Read More

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Malbec Agrelo 2010

    Snoothrank:

    What a bouquet! Its beguiling, with endless wafts of cut flowers and ripe red fruit. The rest of the experience is not quite at the same level an unctuous note of black cherry, but not enough depth to sustain it. Still a worthy malbec, but not up to the standard of the 2009 edition.

  • Bodega Catena Zapata Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

    Snoothrank:

    A deep bouquet of ink and green plum telegraphs the dark, almost burnt flavor of the wine, rounded out by touches of nutmeg and clove. Its still a bit tannic and lacks some depth after the first few sips, but it could develop into a profound cabernet dominated by sturdy black currant. (AV 86, http://argovino.com/?p=730) Read More
