Septima 2013 Gran Reserva Mendoza
93 points
$34.99
Nearly opaque bright dark medium color. Bright, buttery aromas and flavors of coconut buttercream, berry custard tart, and honeyed peppercorns with an oily, vibrant, dryish medium-full body and a warming, complex, medium-length creme brulee, roasted nuts, and earth finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak. A robust, very structured, flavor-packed malbec-led red blend.

Septima 2014 Obra Malbec
92 points
$24.99
Deep purple color. Aromas of cranberries, herb roasted nuts, creme brulee, and whisky barrel and incense with a supple, bright, dry medium body and a tingling, engaging, medium-length pomegranate, clay, roasted tomato, and oak finish with chewy, barky tannins and heavy oak. A tightly wound, very dry and serious red wine.

MYTHIC 2013 Red Blend Mendoza
89 points
$24.99
Medium dark bright indigo color. Bright, smoky, fruity aromas of smoked nuts, grilled blueberries, and malted chocolate caramel bar with an even, lively, dryish medium-to-full body and a warming, intricate, medium-length blood orange, peppery spice, and nuts finish with chewy tannins and moderate oak. A nice spicy, smoky malbec that screams for Latin beef dishes.

Violet color. Bright, attractive aromas of cigar box and herbs, sour cherries, spiced apples and nuts, and pencil shavings with a satiny, tangy, fruity light-to-medium body and a smooth, engaging, easy toasty nut brittle, cedar, and pickled beets finish with fine, crunchy tannins and light oak. A solid, juicy malbec with nice oak.

Dark violet color. Bright, curious, savory smoky sweaty aromas and flavors of grilled tomatoes, marinated meat and beet, and chocolate goji berries with a supple, vibrant, dry-yet-fruity medium body and a polished, brisk smoked nuts, pencil shavings, and charcoal finish with woody tannins and moderate oak. A dry, smoky malbec for grilled meats.
