This Weekend's PREMIUM FLIGHT:
 South American Reds


This weekend's premium flight features reds from Argentina and Chile.  Enjoy a 2-oz pour of all three wines for only $19 (a value of over $30):

2009 Capataz Malbec by Darioush
Mendoza, Argentina
Wild herbs, chicory, and lavender match up with red currants, white pepper and smoke on the nose. The mouthfeel is round and plush, revealing ripe blueberry, plum, and licorice flavors. The finish is notably long accented by chocolate and espresso.
 
2005 Emiliana Ge
Colchagua Valley, Chile
Impressively rich, with loads of blueberry compote, braised fig, graphite and roasted earth notes waiting to emerge fully from behind the wall of dark, spice-laden toast. There's great buried acidity and a long, grip-filled finish. Loaded with character, this is built for the cellar. 30% Syrah, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Carménère, 16% Merlot.

2007 Decero Amano, Remolinos Vineyard
Mendoza, Argentina
The 2007 Decero Amano Remolinos Vineyard is composed of 60% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Petit Verdot and Tannat that was aged for 22 months in new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it displays an alluring bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, espresso roast, violets, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a layered, dense, powerful wine with a smooth texture, outstanding depth and concentration, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Give it 4-6 years in the cellar and drink it from 2014 to 2022.
