2007 Bodega Elvira Calle "Ca' de Calle" Gran Reserva Mendoza

SKU #1050010

90 points Wine Spectator: "Very polished, with a suave mocha note weaving through the crushed red plum, raspberry and boysenberry fruit, backed by a spicy note on the velvety finish. Drink now. 500 cases made." (08/09) The Ca' de Calle is a blend of Malbec, Bonarda, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. This kitchen sink style blend is made in the vein of Sean Thackrey's Pleiades or Owen Roe's Abbot's Table, it just happens to be from Argentina. The wine is loaded with black fruit flavors, spice box aromas and a subtle, smoky finish. It's nice to see all of Mendoza's best varietals working in conjunction together.

A pleasant, easy to drink wine with purple fruit, soft tannins, and spice.

Interesting blend of malbec, bonarda (yum), syrah, cab, merlot. Beautiful brick red color. Lush nose of berry. Plum, red fruit in mouth with clean finish. 14% alcohol. A great wine for only 12.99

Country:

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.
