Trivento Golden Reserve Malbec

Friday, November 20th, 2009

Vintage: 2006
Type: Malbec
Country: Argentina

Wow. After cleansing my palate of Casillero del Diablo (Chile) Malbec, I tried this Argentinian Malbec and was surprised at the difference. First of all, its colour is a gorgeous ruby-violet shade. Swirl it around in your glass to release aromas of berries and chocolate. Admire its long legs. Taste the cherries and minty finish. This is just lovely.

Clos de los Siete

Saturday, June 20th, 2009

Vintage: 2007
Type: Blend
Country: Argentina

What is this a blend of? Quite a lot: Malbec, Merlot Syrah & Cabernet Sauvignon. I’ve recently tried a few blends from the new world, and if done properly they are exquisite. This one is done well. I enjoyed all aspects of this wine, fruity flavours and oakey finish, great colour and legs. Recommended.

The Waxed Bat

Vintage: 2007
Type: Shiraz Petit Verdot
Country: Argentina – Mendoza

I so wanted to like this wine. To start off, the descriptions of this wine are great. Secondly, the wine itself looks purple when it is poured. The smell is great, unfortunately the taste lets you down. I found it harsh to drink and a major let-down.

There are a couple of more bottles left, so I think I will give it another chance in a couple of years.
