Winemaker Notes

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This dark and brawny red has its back turned to us for now, though there's a pile of dark currant and blackberry fruit, bittersweet chocolate, bitter almond and mineral notes that ambitious folks will look forward to scaling after extended cellaring. A burly wine whose spiky minerality is not for the faint of heart. Best from 2006 through 2019. 250 cases made.
RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The elegant, deep ruby/purple-colored 2001 Chateauneuf du Pape Cuvee du Quet offers up beautiful aromas of kirsch liqueur, flowers, cherries, currants, and a resiny note. Full-bodied, firmly tannic, and closed, with excellent delineation, structure, and purity, it requires 2-4 years of cellaring. Anticipated maturity: 2007-2016.

Argentina

View all wine

Stretching from the Andes to Patagonia, Argentina's unique terroir lends to high quality wines. Formerly associated with inexpensive bulk wine but dramatically shifting focus from quantity to quality, Argentina is the most important wine-producing country in South America. Certainly excellent values abound here still, but increases in vineyard investment, improved winery technology, and a commitment to innovation since the late 20th century have contributed to the country’s burgeoning image as a producer of great wines at all price points. The climate here is diverse but generally continental and agreeable, with hot, dry summers and cold snowy winters—a positive, as snow melt from the Andes Mountains can be used to irrigate vineyards. Grapes very rarely have any difficulty achieving full ripeness.

Mendoza, a large and famous region responsible for more than 70% of Argentina’s wine production, is further divided into several sub-regions, including Luján de Cuyo and the Uco Valley. Red wines dominate here, especially Malbec, the country’s star variety, while Chardonnay is the most successful white. The province of San Juan is best known for blends of Bonarda and Syrah. Torrontés is a specialty of the La Rioja and Salta regions, the latter of which is also responsible for excellent Malbecs grown at very high elevation.

Other Red Blends

With hundreds of red grape varieties to choose from, winemakers have the freedom to create a virtually endless assortment of blended wines. In many European regions, strict laws are in place determining the set of varieties that may be used, but in the New World experimentation is permitted and encouraged. Blending can be utilized to create complex wines with many different layers of flavors and aromas, or to create more balanced wines. For example, a variety that is soft and full-bodied may be combined with one that is lighter with naturally high acidity. Sometimes small amounts of a particular variety are added to boost color or aromatics. Blending can take place before or after fermentation, with the latter, more popular option giving more control to the winemaker over the final qualities of the wine.
