The Wine Advocate - "The 2009 Enamore Allegrini & ReNacer is composed of 60% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Cabernet Franc and Bonarda aged for 12 months in seasoned French oak. Made in an Amarone style with dried grapes, it is a full-bodied, layered, sweet, and densely packed offering that will deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2021."
International Wine Cellar - "Bright red-ruby. Liqueur-like dark raspberry, cassis, licorice and black pepper on the nose, plus an exotic whiff of fresh apricot. Distinctly sweet (8 g/l r.s.) but with excellent acidity giving the wine a surprising delicacy. Exotic and round, with terrific fruit intensity and a very long, seamless finish featuring sweet tannins. An excellent vintage for this extract-rich wine."
Wine Enthusiast - "Black plum, blackberry, lemon zest and licorice are the key aromas on this Amarone-patterned blend from Argentina. The palate is concentrated, rich and lush, with grabby, soft tannins and sweet flavors of blackberry, brown sugar and caramel. Toasty and mild on the finish, with jammy thickness."

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
