A 6 region blend, deep Ruby with aromas of dark red fruits, spice and dried herbal and floral notes. On the palate flavors of blueberry and blackberry with licorice and pepper oak. Fine grainy tannins, lively acidity, medium(+) finish ending with fruit, subtle oak and savory spice. Nice! — 2 days ago

El Enemigo

Gran Enemigo El Cepillo Cabernet Franc 2015

Wow! On the nose, dark plums and black cherries, fresh dark liquorice.
On the palate. A first phase of dark plums, black cherries and black berries. Fairly quickly the dark fruit notes are cut through with black liquorice, secondary ripple effects of vegetation and hints of fresh mint. The final third engulfs the medley of flavours laced with fine leather. Medium tannin percolates around, staying for a final bow. Decanted 1hr and 45 min. Served with filet mignon with melted blue cheese, roasted vegetable medley sprinkled with goat’ cheese (sweet potatoes, beets, carrots), asparagus and green pea basil/mint puree (all prepared at home).

Ver Sacrum

Doña Mencia De Los Andes

This is just different. Mencia planted in 2011 in Argentina. Not like the Spanish version exactly, but not too distant. Aromas of cherry, raspberry, and blueberry with a distinct violet note. Juicy, mineral, and balanced in the mouth, with lower tannins and sturdy acid made it a great match for burgers for a pre-Mother’s Day cookout. Delicious and unique. — 6 days ago

Interesting. I didn’t realise Mencia had been planted in Argentinia.

Finca Altamira Mendoza Malbec 2000

ESF
9.4

Freakin unreal: absolutely no sign of age, effusive out of the chute w/huge blackberry & boysenberry drenched in minerals & spice cake, sweet asphalt, and rose petals. Unreal concentration & elegance. Better than it’s ever showed - cross between Barolo & Cornas. Voluptuous - sturdy tannins and lingering finish. — 20 days ago
