2013 Padrillos Malbec

In Malbec on August 25, 2015 at 12:24 pm

padcrillosDark and luscious aromas of ripe blueberries and blackberries mingle with those of freshly toasted bread, smothered in butter and dashed with just hints of vanilla and cinnamon; and the palate is sensuous, with a smooth mouthfeel of dulce de leche, baked fruits, and weighty richness.

Ernesto Catena’s Padrillos Malbec will make you feel warm and fabulous inside. You may recognize Ernesto’s last name – Catena.  The Catena family brought Argentinian Malbec to the world, not only upgrading its quality but also proving for the last twenty years how great it can be.  Ernesto is a breakaway from his family’s dynasty, not quite a black sheep, but definitely wanting to do his own thing.

And for us, that’s great news.  Catena’s Malbecs now climb into the $20s with some of them as high as $100 a bottle.  Yet because Ernesto is not “that” Catena, we get to drink the same quality, from some of the same vineyards, for less.

2013 Inama Soave Classico

In Soave, Uncategorized on August 18, 2015 at 12:06 pm

inamaSoave, pronounced like Rico is at the helm, is the exotic and essential Italian answer to hot summer days.

Soave is a white wine growing region that spans from Venice to Lake Garda in Northern Italy.  The grape of Soave is the utterly hard to pronounce Garganega (now you know why everyone refers to the wines as Soave).  Garganega, when planted within the Classico zone of Soave, produces wines of class: elegant, smooth and full-bodied on the palate, combined with crisp, refreshing minerality.  If you will, it carries the best characteristics of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc combined.

The 2013 Soave Classico opens with a delicate nose of cherry blossoms, lilies of the valley and lemon verbena.  Joining these flavors on the palate is a sweet marzipan note with refined and lingering notes of Asian pear.  This Soave is an example of all that is great about Italian white wine.  It is exotic wine, outside of the everyday humdrum of Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc; like neither, but pleasing to those who enjoy either.  It is Soave at its most expressive, essential for getting Italians through their hot summer days.
