First wine we’ve had from Salta (as opposed to Mendoza). A most complex and satisfying red. Smooth and abrasive, but not jarring. Deep and complex. Easy to drink but with a little jolt. Food friendly. Maybe not as lingering and thoughtful as you’d expect, but very, very good. One of those surprise reds that takes you aback ( a little, anyway).
Know nothing about this vineyard, little about the wines from Salta (although malaria is prevalent now in the area!), and can’t say for certain I’ve ever even had a glass from the area. Nice surprise. We were told it was a joint venture with the esteemed Etchart family.
Price: Expensive, I think, given how reasonable wine is here: $35 in a restaurant (or, what every bottle of everyday plonk costs in a Vancouver restaurant).
Market Liquidity: Depends. Let’s say you find it in Canada, and let’s say you find it under $30, then it’s a must must must buy. At under $40 a treat. At under $50 there are other options.
