“Friday, Argentina! You will be flipping for this lineup. Bang-for-the-buck I truly don’t think they can be topped. From the ridiculous value that is wine #1 to the boatloads of flavor bursting from our bonus-bonus at just a smidge over thirty bones, this juice is pretty crazy. Come be enlightened, entertained, and totally satisfied as we explore some fabulous wines from the land where the toilets run backwards…….
–2011 GOUGUENHEIM Torrontes (La Rioja) $9.95….”The palate is crisp and taut, showing far more vivacity and fruit than the nose implied, finishing with a flourish of apricot and white peach.”- Wine Advocate
–2011 TILIA Bonarda Reserva $10.95…91 pts-Wine Advocate
–2010 ALTOCEDRO Tempranillo “Ano Cero” (Mendoza) $15.95….90 pts-Wine Advocate
–2009 VINA LAS PERDICES Bonarda Reserva (Mendoza) $16.95
–2008 BODEGAS LA AZUL Reserva Malbec-Cabernet (Mendoza) $20.95….I just tried these last two new-to-Portland bottles this week and was simply loving them and knew immediately you all had to taste them. Great bottles of red wine for money on both counts!
“And then we venture to the land where the bonus’ roam….
–2010 TIKAL Malbec-Bonarda “Patriota” (Mendoza) $21.95….90+ pts-Wine Advocate
–2010 BODEGAS CATENA ZAPATA Cabernet Sauvignon (Mendoza) $23.95….92 pts-Wine Advocate: “It has a Bordeaux-like bouquet of blackberry, bilberry, graphite and dry tobacco that is well-defined and classic in style. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy tannins. There is a palpable sense of tension to this Cabernet, which exhibits great precision on the spicy, edgy finish. Full of personality, this comes highly recommended!”
–2009 LUCA Malbec (Mendoza) $30.95….92 pts-Wine Advocate: “Luca is the personal project of Renaissance woman Laura Catena. The 2009 Malbec displays a fragrant perfume of lavender, wood smoke, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry leading to a smooth-textured, succulent, Malbec with a bit of hidden structure and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Although it is likely to evolve for 1-2 years, it can be approached now and over the next 10 years.”
