DONA PAULA MENDOZA “LOS CARDOS” MALBEC’17 – “Produced from high altitude vineyards in the Luján de Cuyo region of Mendoza, this 100% Malbec wine blends (somewhat) off-dry, ripe berry flavours with plenty of bright, pomegranate acidity and fine, lightly-smoked tannins to keep the overall balance dry.  Look for light spice notes on the tasty, moderate finish.”………37.99

MANOS NEGRAS PATAGONIA PINOT NOIR’15 – The 2015 Pinot Noir is now sourced from a district called Cervantes in the province of Rio Negro close to General Roca. Part of full clusters were used to ferment it with indigenous yeasts in cement vats, it was kept with the fine lees and bottled unoaked. There is good freshness and clean aromas of red berries with the faintest hints of earth. The palate is juicy and soft, with a silky texture and a supple finish. Pleasant and accessible, this is a great value and represents a superb entry level to the place and variety.”…….35.99

PASCUAL TOSO MENDOZA “ALTA BARRANCASSYRAH’14 – Dark woody mossy aromas are heavy, ripe and suggest raisin and prune. This Syrah is stacked and dense on the palate, with hard tannins that pinch. Blackened burnt flavors of blackberry, toast, baking spices, campfire and bacon finish with overt, dominating oak.”…..89.99

TAPIZ ALTA COLLECTION MENDOZA MALBEC’15 – “Jammy black-fruit aromas are accompanied by Christmas spice and clove scents. This Malbec is saturated and heavy, with a jammy composition. Blackberry, chocolate and fig flavors collapse a bit on a rich, oaky finish.”….42.99

TRAPICHE ARGENTINA CABERNET SAUVIGNON13– “Deep ruby red colour; cassis, plum, raisin and bell pepper aroma; dry, medium-full body and medium intensity fruit flavour, forward tannin in the finish.”………34.99
