2014 Tilia Malbec Mendoza

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The grapes of the 2014 Malbec were harvested very early and 70% of them fermented using carbonic maceration. The freshness is so impressive that I had to look at the alcohol level, which is half a degree lower than in the fresher 2013 vintage! There are some herbal aromas (think raspberry leaf), bright cherries and flowers, even lilies. The palate is very tasty, with some subtle bitter flavors, fine tannins and very good acidity. This is a triumph over the vintage. Bravo! This should be readily available, as they produced 500,000 bottles of it. And it's ...Read More »

2014 Pascual Toso Malbec Maipú

Pascual Toso is based in Mendoza's Maipú district, a historic, sun-drenched winegrowing region just southeast of the city. Their Malbec is a standby of the section for its supple, juicy red and dark fruits. A standby Malbec for a very attractive price. The 2014 vintage has not yet been professionally reviewed, but the 2013 bottling garnered 90 points from James Suckling.

2014 Valentin Bianchi "Elsa Bianchi" Malbec Mendoza

The Elsa Malbec comes from Valentin Bianchi's Doña Elsa estate in the cool reaches of San Rafael, Mendoza. With just a kiss of French oak, the rich fruit dominates this easy-drinking red, which has barely-there tannins. Invoke your inner-Argentine and drink this alongside grilled flank steak with a garlicky chimichurri. Many previous vintages recommended by Wine Enthusiast as a "Best Buy."

Exquisite, a tremendous example of how Torrontés can really hit the heights." 90 points Vinous: "Very pale, bright color. Aromas of peach, mirabelle, flowers and wild herbs.

2014 Dominio del Plata "Crios de Susana Balbo" Malbec Mendoza

Crios means offspring (as in children). Susana selected a word to express the notion that these are wines that haven't quite 'grown up' to the same level of maturity as her more expensive Susana Balbo signature label wines, but they receive the same loving care and attention throughout the winemaking process. The label features a series of three connected and overlapping hands, an image inspired by a Mayan artifact. The three hands represent Susana and her two children.

The grapes fermented in cement vats and matured in used oak barrels for approximately one year. It's very perfumed and spicy, aromatic in a way that makes you go to the glass over and over again.

Tannat has proven itself in the very high elevation, extremely sunny and dry conditions of Cafayate and Salta. This wine is all sweet red and dark fruits, with noticeable chewy oak adding spicy notes as well. For Tannat, which has the reputation of being dark, brooding, ferociously tannic, this is actually relatively tame, full in flavor, but round and juicy as well, definitely not an all out tannic assault on the gums! A great introduction to this powerful, famously high in resveratrol grape variety. (Joe Manekin, K&L Argentinean & Chilean wine buyer)
