2004 Bodegas Poesia "Poesia" Lujan de Cuyo (Elsewhere $60)

SKU #1039854 92 points Wine Enthusiast

 Having tasted the 2002 through the 2005, the '04 seems bright by comparison, with aromatics that include forest floor, tar and lively berries. The palate, like all the Poesia wines, is mouthfilling and substantial; flavors of black cherry, boysenberry and mocha are knit together and don’t skip a beat.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 Moving on to the flagship wine, I tasted all vintages from 2004, although they are still distributing the 2007 in the United States. The 2004 Poesia, 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon, remains fresh and vital on the nose with dark cherries, mulberry, dark plum and a touch of balsamic. The palate is full-bodied with rounded, loosely knit mulberry fruit interlaced with white pepper, garrigue and cooked meat. It is nicely balanced, though it is missing just a little precision towards the finish. Drink now-2017.  (10/ 2012)

Wine Spectator

 Good plum and mixed berry fruit along with hints of fruitcake and fig paste. Spice and briar hints fill out the fleshy finish. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. (Web-2008)

Argentina

- Argentina is regarded as one of the most dynamic wine-producing nations in the world, and possibly the most important wine-producing region in South America. Only four countries in the world produce more wine than Argentina. Considerable investments (much of which has come from famous French, Italian and California wine producers) have been made in new vineyards and winemaking technology in the past several years, which along with recent plantings of more premium varieties of grapes, has made Argentina much more competitive internationally. The Mendoza region is the most important region in Argentina's wine industry. And Malbec, among other Bordeaux varietals grown here, reigns supreme.
