List of Wines to be Sampled:

BODEGA LUIGI BOSCA Malbec Uco Valley Terroir Los Miradores 2013
“A bright red, with vibrant acidity supporting the plush flavors of dark plum, cherry and spice. Dark chocolate details emerge on the muscular finish, accented by black olive hints.” –Wine Spectator Nov 30, 2015.

FINCA LAS MORAS Mora Negra 2010 “I’d opt for drinking the 2010 Mora Negra Malbec Bonarda first, which is a similar blend of 70% Malbec and 30% Bonarda with plenty of influence from the elevage, but the additional year in bottle has helped to integrate the chocolate and charred oak notes into the ripe plum and blueberry aromas. The palate shows more polished tannins. Even so, the wine is quite powerful, should develop nicely in bottle and will require equally powerful food.” – Wine Advocate 212

RENACER Punto Final Reserva Malbec 2014 “Well-oaked, with decadent spiciness to the dried cherry and roasted plum flavors. Finishes lean, with notes of hot stone and white pepper.” – Wine Spectator Web Only 2016

TINTO NEGRO Limestone Block Malbec 2014 “Bright medium ruby. Musky aromas of cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate, plus a touch of oak. Concentrated, bright, nicely delineated dark berry and smoky mineral flavors shows good sweetness for the year. Very round, seamless wine with no sign of heaviness or tiredness. Finishes tactile, broad and persistent, with firm but nicely buffered tannins. This very suave wine should provide considerable early appeal.” –Vinous March 2016

RUTINI Trumpeter Malbec 2015 “Simple, classy and a little restrained, this shows bright Morello cherry and liquorice. A good way to get to know the grape.” –Decanter Magazine

MASCOTA Malbec 2013 “The La Mascota 2013 Malbec is sourced from a classical zone, Cruz de Piedra in Mendoza. It is also quite classical itself, fermented in stainless steel and matured in French and American oak barrels for one year. Although the zone is better known for Cabernet it seems like the Malbec also works quite well here, close to the Mendoza River. It shows a perfumed nose with the telltale aromas of violets and plums. The palate is classic and serious with nice tannins and freshness.” – Wine Advocate 220

FINCA LAS MORAS Reserva Malbec 2015 “High altitude combined with irrigation of the purest snow melt in the Andes creates a Malbec with bold dark fruits, savoury notes and hints of spice on the finish.” – Davy’s Wine Merchants (davywine.co.uk)

PASCUAL TOSO Malbec 2015 “It’s wine” –Dr. Jesse
