WINE REVIEW: 2012 Tapiz ‘Las Notas de Jean Claude’, Mendoza, Argentina ($98)



by Andrew Chalk


Appearance: Ruby with opaque core and translucent rim;


Nose: Cedar, raspberries, thyme, cassis;


Palate: Velvety tannins, effusive fruit (raspberry, blackberry). French oak. Medium acidity.


The predominantly merlot red wine blend is quite possibly the best red wine from Argentina that I have ever tasted. The complex tapestry of flavors harmonize in the palate and persist in an engaging finish.


Availability is very limited. Speak to your wine merchant or search online.
