  • Urraca Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Walter Bressia offers this restrained cabernet - pay no attention to the 14.8% alcohol - with aromas of freshly cut navel orange and clove; if it were sweeter, it would seem like a wine already mulled. Instead it offers a straightforward and tangy taste that's a good match for sharp cheeses, especially goat and sheep. (AV 88, http://argovino.com... Read More

  • Urraca Familia Langley Reserva 2005

    Snoothrank:

    This comes in a giant bottle. Dense and brooding on the nose with clay soil tones, black fruit, braised herbs, and nutty oak. While eight years old, this is still tight and just a pup. The balance here is great, this is a large scale wine that manages to feel quite weightless in the mouth. There's tons of tannin here, but they are balanced by ri... Read More

  • Urraca Familia Langley Reserva 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Dusty, lightly smoky oak topping fresh wild cherry and plum, with a fine green herb edge. Carob and lots of spice here. A bit sweet and richly jammy, this is packed with remarkably fresh raspberry fruit. Bright acids and polished tannins make this easy to drink. Theres light cigar box shading on the palate, which really is zesty, and a nice ligh... Read More

  • Urraca Malbec 2008

    Snoothrank:

    This is fairly tight on the nose with a liquory streak of blackberry and black currant gently accented by hints of truffle and walnutty oak. Big and round on entry, this fills the mouth quickly with rich, dark fruit backed up with a hint of coconut, cedary oak and some creamy cinnamon streaks. More backing spices add to the backend before this t... Read More

  • Urraca Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh greenery, young tree kind of aroma with a hint of chalkiness, and some floral qualities. Gentle attack, with a lot of cherries on the mid-palate. There is solid body here, but it's pretty gentle. The wine is pretty hot on the back end, with red fruit presenting itself for good length. I like the fruit acidity in the body, and the bitte...

  • Vinedos Urraca Cabernet Sauvignon 2008

    Snoothrank:

    Deep black fruit, a little musty with barnyard notes and a little chicken coop. A hot wine, big and bold with plenty of thick black inky fruit and some char and ash on the finish. Read More
