SAM-1448. 15 FAMILIA ZUCCARDI CONCRETO ALTAMIRA MALBEC (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Parker 94: 'The second vintage of this unoaked, groundbreaking Malbec, the 2015 Concreto Malbec was produced with grapes from Paraje Altamira that fermented in cement vats with indigenous yeasts (a constant in Zuccardi nowadays) and matured in concrete vats--hence the name--until it was bottled in December 2015. Here they use grapes that only come from parts of their vineyards that have less than 20 centimeters of soil and the calcium carbonate content is the highest they have, as they want this to be pure expression of chalk. The nose is a little reticent, not explosive, a little backward, transmitting a sense of seriousness and harmony. But, the palate is electric, you really feel like you're licking the limestone-covered stones that you have in the vineyards. The nose comes back slowly after time in the glass, with a cocktail of flowers and wild herbs, what you smell when you walk the countryside, especially after it has rained. This is a noteworthy follow up to the groundbreaking first vintage of this wine, possibly with one extra degree of precision and clarity, ending with a dry, dusty sensation, avoiding sweetness at all cost. This is all texture and salinity. Maybe not for all, but I loved it. Drink 2017-2023. $38.'

The dark berry, wild herb, licorice and chalky mineral flavors are complemented by a chocolatey ripeness. Sweet, plush tannins saturate the entire palate, with the finish displaying explosive length. Very strong, very pure and very smooth; expressive and unique. The Davalos family, owners of Bodega Tacuil, also owned Colome before selling the property to Donald Hess in 2001. (this wine, made without any oak contact, represents a tribute to the old RD bottling of Bodega Tacuil). Drink now-2028.‛

Vinous 90: ‛Very pale, bright silver. Very subtle, fresh scents of lime blossom and orange peel. This inexpensive Torrontes stands out for its inner-mouth tension, dryness and salty minerality, partly due to the strong calcaire influence of some fruit from vines in Altamira (about 50% of the blend). Notes of citrus peel, menthol and licorice carry well on the finish. Susana Balbo told me that she likes ‛the greenness, orange peel and flowers‛ added by Torrontes grown in Mendoza, which she describes as more elegant than the Cafayate version. $15.‛

SAM-1484. 14 MATETIC CORRALILLO SAN ANTONIO VALLEY SYRAH (End of Bin Sale-- 20% off)
Parker 91+: ‛The first Syrah I tasted was the 2014 Corralillo Syrah, which is sourced from two hillside parcels planted on granitic soils with differing clay components, both biodynamically farmed. It fermented in open vats with different degrees of destemming, crushing and full clusters, but always with indigenous yeasts. The wine was transferred to French oak barrels for malolactic and completed an elevage of 14 months before it was bottled. Both Syrahs were quite closed at first and needed some time to open up, so decanting in advance might be a good idea. Even so, the nose is rather shy, and the aromas are subtle. This is consistent with the house style, as the wines are more about the palate; and they are more about the place than the different varieties but with the logical varietal character in the background. It has good freshness and tasty flavors, with very fine tannins. $26.‛

They want a Sauvignon for the table, one that combines freshness and volume. They fermented part of it in used barrels and concrete, and it matured with the lees for four months in barrique and concrete eggs. This is more restrained-not as aromatic, less herbal-but the palate is terribly juicy and mineral, focused and makes you salivate. It should work wonders with modern Peruvian gastronomy.

His domaine wines come from 50 acres in Breze and another 50 in Saint Cyr en Bourg. This is a fascinating wine from vines planted in 1965 on a cool northeast-facing hillside where a thin layer of sandy topsoil covers the limestone bedrock. He ferments half of the lot in old foudres, the other half in barriques (15 percent new). The result is both ornate and invigorating, a crunchy chenin that's so dry it will make you thirsty for more. The freshness comes in waves of orange, the richness in notes of hazelnuts and almonds. Age will allow its intensity to mellow. $40.'

The finest sweet vermouth available.'
