“Evaluate a wine is something very subjective and, every palate is different. Perfection is something very personal, that’s why I rarely give a 100 Point score. And in the end the comment is more important. That’s also the reason I like to follow a wine several times, particularly during its first 2-3 years when it often changes the most and the consumer needs guidance.”

Fleshy and meaty nose with ripe dark fruit, cassis, fine oak and a discreet smokiness.

2 91 Artel Piatelli Vineyards - Reserva Malbec Cafayate 2015 Cafayate Valley Red Argentina Larsson 03/10/2017 Intense dark purple hue. The nose displays some herbal, smoky and dark fruity notes with cassis and kirsch. Full bodied and dense, young but ripe tannin, fresh backbone, rather high ripeness but no flavour of alcohol, ripe cherry and currant flavours, the finish is long and dense. A youthful wine with good proportions and potential for development. More details

5 88 Bodega Raffy - Hedera 2014 Cafayate Valley White Argentina Torrontes g.raffy@bodega-raffy.com ; mestriden@gmail.com 06 58 90 64 44 ; +1 832 776 2111 Bodega Raffy Larsson 07/07/2017 Bright straw colour. Very intense, grapey and floral nose with crushed grapes, apple, lime, lemon zest and mint and sweet basil.

6 88 Bodegas Etchart - Gran Linaje 2014 Cafayate Valley White Argentina Torrontes hospitality@bodegascaro.com.ar Larsson Youthful white wine, not a lot of colour intensity here, light straw nuance, very bright. Lovely nose, it is a very aromatic style, very Muscat like rather volatile in this case I would say. With hints of freshly crushed grapes, there is also some spicy notes. Lively and floral, really inviting. I really like this, it is really cheerful and pleasant style. With that lush, hints of those freshly crushed grapes. Balanced bitterness like the grape skin, good freshness with a lot of zest. It leaves a lot of fruit on the aftertaste. I think it is a really well made wine. Something to enjoy rather I would say, aperitif style, even though I think it is a serious wine. At the beginning of the meal, there is a lot of nice dishes to be paired with it. A style I like more and more. Good. More details
7 86 Cuma - Organic Torrontés 2015 Cafayate Valley White Argentina micaela.calderon@decero.com ; leandro.bastias@decero.com 542615244747 Finca Decero Larsson Youthful wine with a quite low colour intensity - bright. Pure nose, really fresh and showing off a lot of grapey aromas, like fresh grapes, quite Muscat like I would say. So floral and perfumed with a gentle spiciness and then we add some lemon and lime zest to the equation. Bone dry palate, really good gripe here. Mouth-watering freshness. It is rather high acidity, in the positive sense. So really cleansing on the palate with that youthful and that grapey fruit. A lighter style of wine, yet with good flavour intensity and freshness on the finish. More of what I would believe would be a Muscat or torrontesstyle. Rather for the beginning of the meal or aperitif style. Really, really pure and I really like that fresh and refreshing finish.Youthful wine with a quite low colour intensity - bright.

The noses starts out discreetly. It feels very young so far, with those primary fruit there, red and dark berries, some notes of red currant and plum. No oak noticeable. The palate has medium weight. It is a subtle and soft texture. Not a lot of tannin. Rather just freshly crushed berries, like sweet red berries, plum, there is a mild spiciness on the finish. Quite light and rounded. This one is offering a lot of pleasure today. So in this soft and subtle style, well made for quite early drinking I would say. More details
9 86 Cuma - Organic Malbec 2015 Cafayate Valley Red Argentina micaela.calderon@decero.com ; leandro.bastias@decero.com 542615244747 Finca Decero Larsson Very youthful colour here, blue-purple. Very young nose. Very primary in terms of fruitiness, crushed plum, some violet and then also some hint of almost like yogurt, something lactic. The palate has medium weight, but quite dense fruit there, with some violet infused dark plum. In terms of texture there is not a lot of tannin, but the ones we have are still quite young and grainy. So juicy fruit, plum, with a good level of freshness. It is actually quite mouth-watering. Medium towards long finish. Still a bit youthful and restrained, but with pleasurable fruit. It should offer a nice glass of wine within the near future. More details
