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

January 20, 2012 1:11 pm - Posted by Jody in Drink

SolengoTuscany, Italy

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)

Wine of The Week – Catena Malbec 2009

October 20, 2011 12:13 pm - Posted by Jody in Drink

Each week I like to choose a new wine to introduce to our fans. These wines vary by region, by varietal and even by price. I don’t think cost and value are necessarily related. So I like to focus on wines I have experienced on my travels and I think our fans will enjoy trying. salut!

Catena MalbecMendoza, Argentina

A rich red, with ripe layers of linzer torte, plum pudding and fig paste flavors backed by layers of mesquite, olive paste and grilled herbs. Grippy tannins add weight to the long, vibrant finish. Drink now through 2013. (Oct 15th 2011)
