Argentine wine/golden barrel

Maipe Argentina
Sauvignon Blanc 2011.. more herbal, not grapefruit.. cleaner

Chardonnay 2011 light stainless steel.. good fruit.. clean

Rose of Malbec 2011  strawberry color, stinky feet nose, somewhat juicy but the earthy/stinky feet carries through

Malbec 2012 darkin in color, blueberry/raspberry nose, dark flavors and somewhat chunky on the palate.. a young vine expression

Cabernet 2011 dark color in glass but very blunt flavors on the palate.. not a fan

Reserve Malbec 2011  nice tannins but not a lot of fruit on the finish

Reserve Cabernet 2010  nice and clear in the glass.. a bit of stinky feet up front.. fruity upfront tannins

Chakana Malbec 2011 the winner of the day.. very tight nose but such wonserful fruit on the palate.. lush and lovely.. a hint of chocolate marshmello.. on the long finish..

Lexicon 2012 Malbec dark concentrated colors.. good berry some oak and fruit.. soft tannins..
