At first was only 3 stars, but improved after 15 minutes in the glass. Nose had cedar, cherry and olives. Viscous and chalky in mouth, with notes of pepper. Finish was maybe a little too tight. This wine may drink better next year.

I think I've become addicted to New Zealand SBs. After getting used to their herbaceousness, fruity delights, crispness, and long finishes, I was a little disappointed in this wine.It was good, don't get me wrong - nice tropical fruit flavors, and a medium finish, but I just couldn't bump it up to 4 stars, especially at the price point. I thin... Read More
Read the article at Wines and Vines about how a journalist exposed the Spectator's Awards of Excellence. The ability to buy an Award of Excellence is fairly common thought in the restaurant industry, but this is pretty hard proof:http://www.winesandvines.com/template.cfm?section=news&content=57843 Read More
This is by far the best wine produced by Nieto Senetiner. That said, it is a good Malbec but not among the stars of Mendoza. Full of body, nice nose, but a bit on the tanic side for me. Read More
The best Argentina has to offer, a fantastic wine, with a fruity nose, hints of nice vanilla, some spices. Soft tanins and a very plesant finish, made the mistake of opening before a 2004 Beaucastel and it took the stars from it!!! Read More
