vine connections/ mo bev

Casa Silva Carmenere Cuvee Colcagua 2012...  dark purple in the glass, not the bell pepper nose of most Carme's firm tannins... may be one of the best Carmenere i have tasted.

J Bouchon Merlot 2012... this companies homage to left bank. merlot based but blended with other bordeaux varietals. slightly herbal and a bit rustic but still interesting

Coquena Tannat Salta 2011.. woodsy on the nose and extremely drinkable given the varietal.

Boya Sauvignon Blanc 2013 gooseberry without the high acid, more round in texture...causing to be somewhat dull

Crios Rose of malbec 2012.. slightly flabby...
Boya pinot Noir 2012  slight rusty color.. slight rhurbarb on the nose, spice and coffee on the finish..
