2009 Cuvelier Los Andes Grand Vin, Argentina, Valle de Uco, Wine Review

70% Malbec, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Syrah, 5% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot.  From the family that owns Leoville Poyferre in Bordeaux.  Purple/ruby in color.  The nose is warm and slightly musty (not in an off way).  Also has some cassis and plums.  On the palate, this drinks like a Bordeaux; fruit, tobacco and earth.  Black raspberries and plums.  Slight tannins.  It has a nice depth and seems to be closing in on maturity.  A bit soft but within reason.  Would work with roasted or grilled meats quite well.  No hurry, but won't get better and probably should be drunk in the next five years.  

2014 Antigal Malbec 1, Argentina, Mendoza, Wine Review

This is an inexpensive crowd pleaser made from the Malbec grape.  Available for under $15 almost everywhere.  Purple in color.  The nose has plums and slight cherries.  On the palate, this has slight tannins.  Easy drinking.  Plums that are ripe and just a hint of sweetness.  Clean finish.  Solid all the way around and a great choice for parties.  This will last a few years but its not made for long term cellaring.  Friendly with hearty foods.  

2015 Allamand Saint Jeannet, Argentina, Mendoza, Wine Review

Saint Jeannet is a rare white wine grape.  This is one of the few bottlings that use it.  Light golden in color.  The nose has limes, asparagus and a metallic quality.  The palate is a bit better and more about minerals.  A bit of citrus.  Decent acidity.  Nice enough finish.  This retails for around $10 and for that price, this is good value.
