Argentina Reviews

Algodon Wine Estates 2015 Estate Pinot Noir
92 points
$29
Brown brick red color. Aromas and flavors of cherry bon bon, cranberry mostarda, savory herbs, mint, and caramelized mushrooms with a satiny, tangy, dry-yet-fruity light body and a delightful, long finish that presents notes of chocolate. A vibrant Pinot Noir with an elegant balance of fruit and earth; edgy acidity gives aging potential.

Black violet color. Inviting aromas and flavors of spiced plum, ginger snaps, banana cake, and roasted nuts with a velvety, vibrant, dryish medium-full body and an elegant, long finish with notes of cigar box, vanilla bean, burnt sugar, and graphite with firm, well-integrated tannins and heavy oak flavor. A brawny red blend from Argentina that blankets the palate in toasty oak flavor.
