Gold List: 2010 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon, Remolinos Vineyard

‘Restraint, elegance and good value took Decero to the top. ‘Plums, currants and spice on the nose, leading to a very clean, fresh, spicy structure with finesse. Excellent length. Very well made,’ said team leader, Angela Reddin, while Gabor Foth of Hakkasan Hanway Place added, ‘Amazing, a really great expression, with good varietal character, and fresh but intense cassis. It’s a great wine for someone who likes Bordeaux or New World Cabernet blends.’ Go for char-grilled steak.’  – Gold Medal

91+ Points: 2010 Decero Amano, Remolinos Vineyard

A blend of 65% malbec, 30% cabernet sauvignon, 4% petit verdot and 1% tannat; aged for 20 months in new French oak: Saturated bright medium ruby. Very ripe, high-toned aromas of black raspberry and sweet mocha oak. Sweet blackberry and blackberry fruit flavors are complicated by coffee and mocha notes and given a light touch by nicely integrated ripe acidity. Finishes with brisk berry flavors and good lift. A bit withdrawn today, in need of a couple years in bottle to absorb some more of its oak.

90 Points: 2011 Decero Malbec, Remolinos Vineyard

Bright ruby-red. Slightly high-toned aromas of blackberry, kirsch, bitter chocolate, violet and spice cake. Densely packed and smooth but also lively and light on its feet thanks to harmonious acidity. Conveys a lovely restrained sweetness to its dark berry, licorice, violet and tobacco flavors. Finishes with smooth tannins and sneaky length; in comparison, the estate’s cabernet sauvignon is a bit drier and more herbal on the back end.

91 Points: 2010 Decero Mini Ediciones Petit Verdot, Remolinos Vineyard

Saturated medium ruby. Very black, youthfully medicinal aromas of cassis, bitter chocolate, licorice and menthol lifted by a violet note. Densely packed, fresh and structured, with solid saline extract to the flavors of blackberry, cassis and minerals. Boasts a sophisticated texture and an enticing sugar/acid balance. This serious dry wine finishes with substantial fine-grained tannins.

92 Points: 2009 Decero Amano, Remolinos Vineyard

From a fabulous vintage in Agrelo look for a floral, plum jam, barnyard, spicy, black berry, vanilla nose with savoury liquorice tobacco notes. The palate is rich and dry with fine acidity and some grainy young tannin. More liquorice, black plum, pepper, blueberry, spicy, vanilla, coffee flavours flecked with poultry spice. A bit rustic but with fine concentration and intensity with youthful tannins to shed over the next 2-4 years. Roast beef anyone.

2010 Decero Mini Ediciones Petit Verdot, Remolinos Vineyard

Fragrant and not too heavy. Really rather delicate and savoury and grown up. This would make a superb varietal lesson. The merest hint of Petit Verdot greenness. Lovely stuff! Sophisticated. 14%. 17 Pts. Drink 2013-2018.

92 Points: 2008 Decero Amano, Remolinos Vineyard

Multi-layered, complex, floral and elegant. Full flavours of bright plum, berry and spice with liquorice and a gorgeous mouthfeel that leads to a long, luxurious finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Tannat. Firm enough for grilled bison, but elegant enough for grilled chicken.

91 Points: 2008 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon, Remolinos Vineyard

Aromas and flavours of cherry, blackcurrant and spice with elegant well-integrated tannins, firm structure, bright acidity and a beautiful freshness on the long, silky finish. A great food wine because of its fresh acidity. The perfect match for a nicely marbled Alberta rib-eye.

90 Points: 2010 Decero Syrah, Remolinos Vineyard

Alluring aromas of berries. Plum, earth arrd spice give way to a structured wine filled with boysenberry, plum and blackberry fruit flavours, with firm, elegant tannins. Multi-layered, ripe but not overdone, and long on the finish. Nicely focused and balanced. Grilled lamb chops would be a great match.

2010 Decero Malbec, Remolinos Vineyard

Le malbec argentin de référence au Québec!

Un vin singulier, qui reflète entièrement son terroir, soit celui d’Agrelo, au sud de Mendoza, à plus de 1000 mètres d’altitude. Thomas Schmidheiny, originaire de Suisse, a parcouru le monde afin de trouver un grand terroir qui puisse lui permettre de réaliser son rêve de produire des vins uniques et différents de la masse! Decero signifie « partir de zéro » et c’est avec cette approche qu’il a construit les chais et créé chaque vin. La production est 100 % manuelle et l’intervention humaine est réduite à son strict minimum, afin de laisser s’exprimer les raisins.!

Un malbec absolument remarquable dans cette gamme de prix. Le domaine est perché à 3,500 pieds (1,050 m) d’altitude, dans la zone la plus élevée d’Agrelo, dans la région de Mendoza. C’est là, dans les contreforts de la cordillère des Andes, que Remolinos Vineyard a su transformer 271 acres de paysage aride en un vignoble prospère qui propose des vins d’une superbe qualité, dont cet éclatant Malbec. D’une pureté remarquable, il déploie des arômes de fruits rouges, de prune et de violette, ennoblis par une touche boisée parfaitement dosée et intégrée au vin. Un malbec expressif et digeste, admirablement bien équilibré par la fraîcheur de l’acidité, qui se distingue par sa complexité, sa finesse et sa richesse en bouche. Les tanins sont souples, la texture délicieusement veloutée, et les flaveurs s’attardent longuement en bouche. Un super vin de gastronomie!

Passer en carafe 15 minutes et servir à 17 °C. Superbe avec le foie de veau sauce au poivre, le couscous aux merguez, le bifteck à l’ail et aux épices, ou avec les brochettes de boeuf au café noir.

90 Points: 2010 Decero Mini Ediciones Petit Verdot, Remolinos Vineyard

The 2010 Mini Ediciones Petit Verdot is from Agrelo in Mendoza and is aged for 16 months in barriques (50% new). It has a tightly wound bouquet of blackberry and bilberry fruit with hints of wild hedgerow and graphite that all take time to unfurl. The palate is medium-bodied with fine definition: sappy dark cherry and blueberry fruit on the entry and a sweet, ripe blueberry-tinged finish that belies the fine structure. This is a very commendable single varietal. Drink 2013-2019.

91 Points: 2010 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon, Remolinos Vineyard

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon – Remolinos Vineyard is aged in new French barriques (30% new) for 14 months. It offers a refined tobacco and sous-bois scented bouquet that nods towards the Old World. The palate is medium-bodied, with dusty blackberry fruit, bold earthy tannins and a delightful, foursquare finish that you would expect to find on the Left Bank. Fortunately, there is no Left Bank price to contend with! Excellent. Drink now-2017.
