Winemaker's Notes:

Tilia Malbec has a dark, blackish purple color. The nose offers ripe black fruits, black pepper spice and floral notes. The mouthfeel is full yet soft and supple, with black raspberry and currant flavors mingled with notes of sweet spice and a touch of leather. The finish is long and persistent with soft, sweet tannins.

About Tilia:

Named after the Tilia (Linden) tree commonly found throughout Argentina’s wine country, Tilia wines possess true varietal character and embody the rural Mendozean lifestyle. For years vineyard workers have used the flowers of the Tilia to make an herbal tea for enjoyment after a hard day’s work. The name Tilia is chosen in honor of this wine country tradition.

The Tilia wines are made at Bodegas Esmeralda, a Catena family winery in the Eastern region of Mendoza that is dedicated to making value wines for the Argentine domestic market. Tilia wines offer a unique combination of fruit sourced from the traditional Eastern region and the dynamic Southern region of Mendoza. The Eastern region of Mendoza enjoys warm, sunny days and cool desert nights. The grapes have very ripe, rich fruit flavors and excellent mid-palate depth and concentration. Bright sunshine and low temperatures of the Southern region lend a cool freshness. The fruit from this area shows clean acid balance and soft, supple tannins.

Tilia is dedicated to responsible use of the environment. The winemaking and viticultural team actively engage in many practices and programs throughout the community to implement sustainability. Water conservation and reuse, minimal use of pesticides and organic fertilization are several examples of the team’s dedication. Furthermore, the entire Tilia viticultural team attends regular sustainability training sessions at the National University of Cuyo and National Agricultural Research Institute. They take this training into the field to share and implement with their grower partners.

Winemaker's Notes:

Luxurious, rich and concentrated aromas of black cherry, currant and blueberry are just the start of this 2007 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. The harmonious flavors of black cherry, anise and plush cassis explode through your mouth. This classic Napa Valley Estate Cabernet is elegant and wonderful young but also has everything it needs to age beautifully.

Winemaker's Notes:

Dark violet in color. Floral notes and spice on the nose with intense blackberry aromas lead to exceptional levels of concentrated fruit and complexity with flavors of cassis, ripe red cherries, hints of black pepper, mocha and persistent vanilla. Smooth, round tannins highlight the creamy texture and lengthy finish.

PRICE ON 4/24/2014: $10.95

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2007 Undone Pinot Noir is very smooth, with berry and plum notes on the palate. It was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks, so it has no oak influence – the pure flavors of Pinot Noir show through. A perfect match with salmon, red meat, and pasta.
My Notes:

About Undone:

The Undone estate is located in Germany's Rheinhessen region. Rheinhessen is Germany’s largest wine region by area. It has gently rolling hills and is situated in the climatically favored large elbow formed by the Rhein river as it flows from Worms to its sweeping bend around Mainz then back north at Bingen.

Undone produces a Dry Riesling and Pinot Noir.
