Red | Cabernet Sauvignon | Argentina | Menodoza | 750ml
"Blended with 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc.Beautiful deep red color with perfumed aromas of ripe black cherries, strawberries and roasted cocoa beans. This wine is full-bodied and incredibly lush for a young Cabernet. It explodes on the palate with red and black fruits, then shows baking spices on its way to a mouthwatering finish. Pairs with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, rabbit, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces."

Catena Zapata Nicasia Malbec is made from a meticulous vine selection in the best lots of the Catena family’s estate vineyards. These Zapata vines are carefully hand tended and produce extremely low yields. The grapes are micro-fermented in new French oak barriques and the wine is then aged for 18 months in new French oak. This wine is made in very limited quantities.
"The single vineyard Malbecs begin with the 2007 Nicasia Vineyard Malbec. It was barrel-fermented and aged for 18 months in 100% new oak including a racking into a second set of new barrels (the so-called “200% new oak” treatment). A glass-coating opaque purple/black in color, it offers up a splendid nose of toasty new oak, earth notes, exotic spices, black cherry and black raspberry. This is followed by a plush, layered, intensely flavored wine with potential complexity, precision balance, and a seamless finish." Wine Advocate (95 Points)
Red | Proprietary Blend | Argentina | Mendoza | 750ml
The 2009 Clos de Los Siete is a nearly identical blend with the same elevage. Ripe, succulent, and impressively balanced, this outstanding value will also drink well for another 5-6 years. Wine Advocate 90 Points
Red | Malbec,Bonarda | Argentina | Mendoza | 750ml
The Gambler is a broad, brawny, and powerful red wine with flavor and texture for days. Ripe Malbec is counterbalanced with a touch of Bonarda to create a forceful and full mouthfeel of blue and black fruits, leather and spice.
Red | Cabernet Sauvignon | Argentina | Mendoza | 750ml
The 2010 Collecion Cabernet Sauvignon displays darker fruit and a bit more richness. Supple, ripe, and velvety on the palate, it will offer prime drinking from 2012 to 2020. Cuvelier Los Andes is owned by Bertrand and Jean-Guy Cuvelier, part-owners of renowned Bordeaux Chateau Leoville-Poyferre in Saint Julien. The estate is located in the Uco Valley at the foothills of the Andes and encompasses 115 acres of still young vines. The consulting winemaker is Michel Rolland.Wine Advocate 90 Points
It's a pretty tough combination to beat here at Cuvelir, some fine Argentine terroir coupled with Bordeaux knowhow. As you are probably aware, this is owned by Bertrand and Jean-Guy Cuvelier who also have an intresty in another property called Leoville Poyferre. This is an extention of their Coleccion line which is their value play, though it appears they just expanded this line to include varietal bottlings. (formerly thre was just a blend). Lovely, sleek plum and black cherry fruit, brown spices and a touch of soil. Even this ‘little’ wine has polish and breeding and can deliver ow or hold in the cellar for up to a decade. Very Bordeaux-like in weight and texture, but sexier somehow.Wine Advocate
Red | Malbec, Syrah | Argentina | Mendoza | 750ml
Blend: 80% Malbec and 20% Syrah2010 Perlita is a blend of a charming wine made by Silvio Alberto with the help of consulting enologist Michel Rolland. Perhaps it takes a producer obsessed with luxury items to make a Malbec this luxurious and yet affordable. It even looks classy, potentially getting the Mister Wright best label award. Diamandes Perlita Malbec-Syrah is a "must have" and a "to do." The characteristics of the Argentinean Malbec combined with the smoothness of the Syrah produce a very pleasant, full bodied, rich wine.The palate develops ripe fruit and soft but intense tannins. Silky and smooth with a pleasant finish.
A midseason ripener, it can bring very deep color, ample tannin, and a particular plum-like flavor component to add complexity to claret blends.

Marked intense red colour. Aromas of morello cherries and spices. Balanced tannins are perceived in the mouth as a result of 3-month ageing in French oak casks. Velvety, well structured, refined and up-to-date.
