November Wine Club - Peacock

Re: November Wine Club - Sapphire post, I thought the prices on the website were a typo. This is not a blog post to talk about politics, but currently Argentina is going through some serious politicking. Milei's "economic 'shock' therapy," 😣, the Gaza strip 😟 War in Ukraine🙁 Global Warming😩Whoa that got dark fast.

Lets keep it light. I'm glad in my own little way I am able to support Argentina's wine this month. The red Peacock selection is the 2018 Viña Cobos 'Vinculum' Malbec.


Luján de Cuyo Appellation
Las Compuertas

According to the winemakers notes the growing season had "excellent climactic conditions" thoughtout the growing season. The vineyards are well loved and maintained and resulted in high-quality fruit with good color and concentration. The fruit was hand harvested March 15-->April 15. The juice was aged in 37% new french oak barrels for 18 months. Its visually appealing as soon as that violet red juice hits the glass. Vibrant floral notes were the first notes that wafted out of the the glass, followed by bright red cherry. Then comes a hints of a vanilla/cedary humidor the tannis elegantly linger on the pallet.

This wine would be 100% on point with a prime rib this holiday season.
