2011 Perez Cruz Cabernet Reserve
Maipo Alto, Chille
This Cabernet Sauvignon reflects the typicity of Maipo Alto very well with notes of ripe red fruit, black pepper, vanilla, nuts, and a classic note of fine herbs such as tarragon and bay leaf. Big bodied and concentrated on the palate with well-rounded tannins, this is a wine that does an excellent job of transmitting our terroir while reflecting the landscape of our vineyards.

2012 Felino Merlot
Mendoza, Argentina
Gives up aromas of cedar, spice box, tobacco, and black currants. This leads to a velvety-textured, ripe wine with plenty of currant flavor. This lengthy, seamless effort will over-deliver for another 6+ years. 90 pts Wine Advocate

2012 Felino Cabernet
Mendoza, Argentina
Reveals an alluring nose of cedar, violets, tobacco, and assorted black fruits. Nicely concentrated and impeccably balanced, this savory effort will provide optimum drinking over the next 6+ years. It, too, is an outstanding value. 90 pts Wine Advocate
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2010 Riglos Gran Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
This highly colored, velvet purple wine is a classic expression of Malbec, showing plum, currant and wild cherry aromas wrapped in nuances of chocolate and background notes of oak. On the palate, red berry and dark stone fruit impressions dominate, set in a texture of silky, supple tannins and sweet, luscious fruit lifted by a fine, measured acidity. The finish is long and succulent, ending on a ripe, plush note that invites another glass. Retail $32.99
