Wine Review: 2010 Graffigna Centenario Reserve Argentina Malbec

With so much Malbec showing up on the shelves of wine retailers, sometimes I feel afloat in a sea of choices as a wine consumer.

Wine Review: 2012 Montes Twins Colchagua Valley Chile Red Blend

This is Montes first foray into fun label marketing and yes, the label is fun and represents the young wine well.

2010 Tikal Natural Mendoza Organic Malbec

This wine was such a pleasure to drink compared to the previous vintage. It’s not like that wine was bad, it was not, in fact it was really pretty good. It’s just that the 2010 blows the 2009 away. This is the embodiment of the purest expression of Malbec fruit that I have tasted in […]
