  • Argenses Malbec Block 18

    Snoothrank:

    This review is for 2012 Reserve Block 15 Malbec. I think this wine is a great example of a good Malbec and drank it in 2015 MAY. I think waiting to drink this wine would be best if waited longer, closer toward the end of the window because it was not quite there yet. It is aged 14th in French oak barrel, hand picked, 100% estate. Read More

  • Friuli (or more properly Friuli Venezia Giulia) lies in Italy’s northeastern corner. Protected from the northern winds by the Austrian and Slovenian Alps, Friuli’s climate is tempered by the Adriatic. The winemakers of this area have a reputation of being forward thinking and producing excellent white wines -- reds account for just under 40%. Tr... Read More
