triventoeolomalbec2012Score: 92

Province: MendozaTrivento Eolo Malbec 2012

Subregion: Lujan de Cuyo

Grapes: 100% Malbec

Aging: 18 months in French oak and 12 months in the bottle

Only a faint, slightly musky aroma emerges from the glass upon swirling, but don’t let that fool you. This is a powerhouse of concentrated flavor that keeps going long after it leaves the palate. The tastes run the gamut from bright red cherries and ripe blueberries to sage and white pepper. Yet this is no bulky, syrupy malbec – it’s taught, sinewy, and still has room to grow. Drink now or wait several years to see what other flavors develop.

Bargains in Argentina, for Now

macriFive years ago, not many Argentines thought the splintered opposition would unite behind one candidate to win the presidency away from the Peronists. And yet it did - Mauricio Macri is the new president, and he's already been changing economic policy in Argentina dramatically. So how will it affect wine exports?

Obviously this question is a small one in the grand scheme of things, but we're here to talk about wine. One of the new administration's first actions was to remove the restraints on Argentina's currency, the peso. Previously, the central bank had used its reserves to buy pesos and prop up the currency's values artificially. Moreover, Argentines faced restrictions on trading pesos for other currencies.

Together, these measures created a black market where the value of the peso was markedly lower. But exports and other monitored transactions had to use the higher official rate. Not surprisingly, when the peso was allowed to float freely on international markets, it lost roughly 30% of its value to settle closer to the black market rate.
