2004 Bodegas Poesia "Poesia" Lujan de Cuyo (Elsewhere $60)
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 donít skip a beat.
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.
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)
