2009 San Pedro de Yacochuya Malbec Blend
Cafayete, Salta Argentina
This ruby-red wine expresses a nose of plum, coffee and chocolate. It is a lush, sexy wine that fills your mouth with fruit and fine tannins. It has the length to live in your cellar but it is ready to go with a quick decant. This wine is destined for a table with big steaks, venison, and rich sauces.
$26.09 as part of a mixed case.
2013 Casarena Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon
11+ bottles available.
An elegant, complex wine with a deep ruby red color. The nose shows aromas of red fruits with light notes of chocolate orange rind. The mouth feel is full and well structured, with sweet spice and vanilla notes from French oak aging and soft, finely grained tannins with excellent length.
$17.99 as part of a mixed case.
2012 Casarena Jamilla's Vineyard Malbec
12+ bottles available.
" Bright ruby-red. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, violet, licorice, crushed rock and bitter chocolate. Juicy and densely packed, with lovely sugar/acid snap to its sappy dark fruit and mineral flavors. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and lovely stony snap and lift, with an exhilarating suggestion of peach pit. Superb retention of primary fruit here. This is as good as most of Argentina's icon bottlings at half the price." -- Stephen Tanzer
$35.99 as part of a mixed case.
