89 Points: 2009 Decero Malbec, Remolinos Vineyard

Bright red-ruby. Pure, perfumed aromas of blackberry, currant, pepper, violet and licorice are complicated by notes of coffee liqueur and tobacco. Saline soil tones add a dimension to the silky dark fruit flavors. Today the wine’s acids and tannins have not yet come into full harmony, but there’s already shows plenty of personality. I’d wait 6 to 12 months before pulling the cork.

12 viner du bara måste prova! 2009 Decero Amano, Remolinos Vineyard

Ända sedan den första årgången av det här unga vinet, 2006, så har det fått genomgående stående ovationer. Ett hantverksmässig vin, därav namnet, från området Mendoza. Gjort på fyra olika franska druvsorter, som med var och ens unika profil ger vinet dess karaktär. Lät parfymerat men ändå stöddigt; klarar alla kraftiga kötträtter med bravur. Skulle säkert kosta det dubbla om det stod Bordeaux på etiketten.

2009 Decero Mini Ediciones Petit Verdot

Decero betyder ungefär “från grunden”, och det här unga vinföretaget odlar och skapar sitt vin vid fotändan till Anderna i Argentina. Efter bara några årgångar visar de upp sina talanger rejält. Här är ett vin som smakar mer än det kostar. Koncentrerat, fylligt, packat med smaker av blåbär och björnbär och kanske lite lakrits, gjort på den utanför Frankrike ganska ovanliga druvan petit verdot. Ett modernt och tekniskt vin att dricka nu, till kraftiga kötträtter.

91 Points: 2008 Decero Amano, Remolinos Vineyard

‘2008 Decero Amano is a blend of 64% Malbec, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Petit Verdot and Tannat aged for 20 months in new French oak. The aromatics are reticent but with coaxing offer up notes of spice box, tobacco, and assorted black fruits. Savory, ripe, and plush on the palate, it displays a suave personality with good volume and length. Give it 2-3 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2013 to 2023.’

2009 Decero Malbec, Remolinos Vineyard

‘2009 Decero Malbec (100%) was aged predominantly in 30% new French oak with 10% of the wine aged in tank. Notions of spice box, lavender, cedar, and black cherry set the stage for a forward, ripe, savory Malbec with good depth and length. Drink this excellent value over the next 5-6 years.’

‘2009 Decero Cabernet Sauvignon displays excellent varietal character.

2009 Decero Malbec, Remolinos Vineyard

‘How things have changed. Malbec today is universally recognised as Argentina’s signature grape variety. The potential was always there, but its secret was locked into the high, semi-desert soils of the Andes. It took a handful of outsiders, treating it with respect in the vineyard and cellar, to reveal malbec’s potential for greatness…. At the Swiss-owned Finca Decero, the 2009 Decero Malbec is a joy, all vivid summer pudding fruit, a nip of tannin and vibrant freshness.’
