2005 Bodegas Poesia "Poesia" Lujan de Cuyo (Elsewhere $90)

SKU #1039855

93 points from Robert Parker: "The winery’s flagship is called Poesia and is a blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon. It too is sourced from an 80 year old vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo. The 2005 Poesia was barrel-fermented and aged for 18 months in 100% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it has a high-class aromatic array of pain grille, violets, spice box, black cherry, and blueberry. Smooth-textured, ripe, and sweetly-fruited, this elegant wine is beautifully balanced, nicely concealing enough structure to permit 5-7 years of evolution."(12/07) 92 points from Stephen Tanzer: "Good ruby-red. Vibrant aromas of cassis, licorice, minerals and spicecake. Suave and light on its feet, with an insidious sweetness and excellent definition to the berry, smoke and mineral flavors. Ripe acids give this wine impressive energy and freshness. Builds slowly and inexorably on the back half. Complex and sophisticated wine-the best yet from this estate, and ample evidence of the quality of this old vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo." (Jan/Feb '08) 92 points and "A Cellar Selection" from Wine Enthusiast: "The youngest of the Poesia line shows some new oak in the form of sawdust aromas and espresso and mocha on the finish. In between those oak-based characteristics are mineral and black-fruit aromas as well as lush, very potent plum and berry flavors. With midnight darkness, firm tannins and straggling wood notes, we suggest sitting this bruiser down for another two to five years." (2/1/2008)

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.
