SAM-1385. 12 NOEMIA A LISA ALTO VALLE DEL RIO NEGRO RED
Wine & Spirits 93: ‘While this wine opens up in a decanter, broil some steaks, as it’s a malbec that requires some patience. This is intense in both red fruit and in structure—built on acidity and firm tannins. By the time the steak is done, the wine will have integrated perfectly. This comes from a vineyard planted in 1932 in Mainqué, in Río Negro, which Noemía bought shortly after settling in Patagonia in 2001. It’s now the basis of some of the winery’s best wines.’

SAM-1422. 14 CONCHA Y TORO MARQUES DE CASA CONCHA PUERTO ALTO VINEYARD MAIPO VALLEY CABERNET SAUVIGNON
2013: James Suckling 93; Parker 90: ‘I tasted four Cabernets with winemaker Marcelo Papa, starting with the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Marqués de Casa Concha Puente Alto Vineyard from the classic Cabernet zone of Puente Alto in the Maipo Valley. In reality, it's a blend with 4% Cabernet Franc, 2% Syrah and 1% Petit Verdot. The vines grow on stony soils and produce classical reds of intense fruit and good structure. The wine fermented in stainless steel tanks with remontage during six to eight days and had a post fermentative maceration of eight to 12 additional days. It aged in 20% new barriques, 60% used barriques and 20% botti from Piemonte. This has a classical nose with the extra dimension and freshness of an earlier harvest and less oak (after an experimental Limited Edition in 2010). There are notes of tobacco, blackberries and graphite but also red cherries and some aromatic herbs that provide freshness. The palate shows even more changes with good grip and tension, with polished texture perhaps not as velvety as in the past, but with a little more tension and very good freshness; the wine is dry, showing the variety and origin, and quite naked -- something winemaker Marcelo Papa attributes to the use of the botti. Great value and typicity.’
