  • Alamos Malbec 2013

    Snoothrank:

    This was aged well and has improved dramatically since first tasting 2 yrs ago. The fruit is pronounced with blackberry, dark cherry, purple pansy, earth and mocha notes driving to lingering finish. 86 points - drink now - Paul Read More

  • Zurdo Maule Valley Chile Merlot 2016

    Snoothrank:

    I am not a Merlot fan but this wine was surprisingly complex with it being young and not spending time in the oak. Maybe? for me; Merlot needs to be steel vatted!? Read More

  • Bellflower Maule Valley Chile Chardonnay 2016

    Snoothrank:

    an un-oaked Chardonnay may appeal to a vegan: but my refined palate needs this wine to spend time in the oak. I struggled through the bottle with this wine that seemed to be bland. Read More

  • Santa Julia Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The look of this one is ever so slightly opaque, rusty red/brown in color and with residual sugars & skin pigments about. Aromas are fruity and deep, with reminders of blackberry, currant, subdued spicy peppercorn, and Earthy tones like soil and pine needle. The flavors are dark, and of dried black fruits (plum, berries, and prune), leather, pe... Read More

  • Meli Maule Valley Chile Riesling 2015

    Snoothrank:

    I did not look at the label prior to opening this cuvee and assumed after tasting that this was a Chardonnay. Upon finding out this was a Riesling. I was chagrined; as I had just finished off a superb Riesling from Germany and this wine does not meet the standard according to my palate Read More

  • Château Vrai Caillou les Vignes de la Garène 2012

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a beautiful deep ruby color in the glass, classic for the varietals. The nose is a lovely expression of ripe berry fruit, leather and graphite that so often characterizes the terroir of the right bank of the Gironde. The taste brings me back to my time in France two decades ago, with a rush of dark fruit, blackberry, currant and bl... Read More

  • Perez Cruz Cabernet Sauvignon Reserva Maipo Valley 2014

    Snoothrank:

    The wine is a deep purple at the center with bright ruby along the edges. The nose is a rich combination of leather, oak, green grass and a hint of rosemary over subdued note of ripe black fruit. The taste a rush of ripe, jammy fruit, blackberry, cherry and currant this at first is more reminiscent of a Zinfandel. The fruit transitions nicely... Read More
