Wine Of The Week – Pares Balta Mas Elena 2007

90 Points, International Wine Cellar
Saturated ruby. Graphite, cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla on the nose, with a sexy floral quality coming up with air. On the palate, the wine’s sweet red and dark fruit flavors are at once juicy, precise and seamless. The cherry and floral notes echo on the very sweet finish. This is delicious now. (Sept/Oct 2010)

Wine Of The Week – Argiano Solengo, IGT Rosso Toscana 2007

92 Points, Wine Advocate

The 2007 Solengo is sleek and refined in its blackberries, blueberries, grilled herbs, spices and graphite. The wine reveals gorgeous length and fine balance in a relatively accessible, mid-weight style for this bottling. The 2007 doesn’t appear to have the structure of the 2006 and it should be enjoyed over the next decade, give or take. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019. (#188, April 2010)

92 Points, Wine Spectator

Full and velvety, with so much cassis and sweet tobacco on the nose and palate. A little hard on the long finish. But should open with bottle age. To be released spring 2011. Best after 2012. 750 cases made. -JS (Oct 31st 2010)
