SAM-1355. 11 CASARENA RESERVA MENDOZA CABERNET SAUVIGNON
Tanzer 92: ‘All from 82-year-old vines. Bright medium ruby. Restrained but pure aromas of blackcurrant, bitter chocolate, mocha and peppery herbs. Dense, sappy and deep, boasting a seamlessness in spite of its musky dark berry flavors accented by pepper and herbs. Classic, satisfying and complete cabernet, with a lush, round texture, excellent breadth and length, and very suave, fine-grained tannins. This could do some damage in a blind flight of top Napa cabernets. A steal at the price.’

SAM-1357. 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-1363. 07 CHEVAL DES ANDES MENDOZA RED
Parker 95: ‘There are no doubts about the 2007 Cheval des Andes, always a candidate for wine of the vintage. Composed of 60% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, and the balance Merlot and Petit Verdot, it spent 18 months in new French oak. This leads to an enthralling nose of sandalwood, floral notes, exotic spices, a velvety texture, complex flavors, and an overall suave personality in the manner of a First Growth Bordeaux. It gracefully combines elegance and power in a wine that will continue to evolve for another 6-8 years. It will see its 20th birthday and likely many more in peak form.’

It is more classical and balanced, with subtle notes of spices and ripe red and black fruit. In the palate, fruit and wood are still in the process of integrating, so I’d wait one more year before pulling the cork. Surprisingly it has the freshness and some of the minty notes more often associated with Bordeaux grapes. This very same wine is also sold in the United States under the Donaire brand. Drink 2015-2018. $20.’
