A Lisa 2015 Malbec, Bodega Noemia, Patagonia
At 39 degrees latitude, Bodega Noemia is one of the southernmost wineries in the world. The unique desert climate of this area grants the vineyards desirable temperature variation form day to night, that play a key role in the maturation of the grapes and considerable winds from the west make these vineyards virtually disease-free. Italian wine producer Countess Noemi Marone Cinzano teamed up with Danish winemaker Hans Vinding-Diers to produce outstanding Argentine Malbec at Bodega Noemia. This wine, named for the winemaker's grandmother is 90% Malbec, the grapes were all picked by hand, destemmed and cold soaked for 4 days before fermentation started. Fermentation lasted 2 weeks, using the plunging and pumping over to extract the color and tannins. After the fermentation, 30% of the wine went into French oak barrels, 25% into cement tank and 45% into stainless steel tank for a period of 9 months. The Wine Advocate scored this wine 93 points saying "The 2015 A Lisa is mostly Malbec with some 9% Merlot and a 1% pinch of Petit Verdot, a wine that shows the potential of Río Negro in Patagonia and the style of Noemía at a very attractive price and at the same time is easy to drink. 2015 seems to be an excellent vintage in the region, and this wine, which only saw 30% of its volume in neutral, well-seasoned oak barrels while the rest was kept in stainless steel for some nine months, shows a balance and freshness that can compete with the fines vintages produced. In his search towards elegance, finesse and drinkability, this vintage shows a profile that would be somewhere between Burgundy and southern Rhône, with a mixture of flowers and red cherries, insinuating, whispering, with a polished palate. It's sapid, tasty, almost salty, with ultra-elegant tannins and superb balancing acidity that makes it extremely harmonious; this is only 13.5% alcohol, one of the lowest--if not the lowest ever--but the thing is the balance, not the alcohol, which is unnoticeable in all the wines. This may very well be the best A Lisa ever, but from what I hear, 2016 could be the best harvest for Noemía as a whole, so I'm dying to taste the wines in bottle..."

SO Good
You would never peg this Malbec at this price as it tastes like double! Bold flavors and integrated tannin make it a welcome addition to any dinner table. You will not regret this purchase

Can you recommend a good red blend?
Janet L on Feb 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hi Janet, we recommend the Chateau Grenet 2015 Bordeaux at http://www.wineexpress.com/shopping/prod_detail/main.asp?productID=37218. The 2015 vintage of Bordeaux is just starting to arrive and it might be one of the greatest Bordeaux vintages of the century! This wine scored Gold at the Concours de Vins in Paris and at Under $20 it's a no-brainer, Cheers!
