2005 Emiliana Ge
Country: Chile      Region: Colchagua Valley
Impressively rich, with loads of blueberry compote, braised fig, graphite and roasted earth notes waiting to emerge fully from behind the wall of dark, spice-laden toast. There's great buried acidity and a long, grip-filled finish. Loaded with character, this is built for the cellar. 30% Syrah, 24% Cabernet Sauvignon, 30% Carménère, 16% Merlot.

2007 FIN del Mundo Tannat
Country: Argentina            Region: Patagonia
Color: Dark red, with violet highlights.  Aroma: Fruity, of red fruit jam and strawberries. A bit spicy, with notes of vanilla, coconut and tobacco. Taste: Gentle, very fruity and balanced, with the presence of tannins. Full-bodied. Well rounded and voluptuous. Long finish.

2007 Decero Amano, Remolinos Vineyd
Country: Argentina            Region: Mendoza / Agrelo
The 2007 Decero Amano Remolinos Vineyard is composed of 60% Malbec, 35% Cabernet Sauvignon, with the balance Petit Verdot and Tannat that was aged for 22 months in new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it displays an alluring bouquet of pain grille, pencil lead, espresso roast, violets, black cherry, and blackberry. This leads to a layered, dense, powerful wine with a smooth texture, outstanding depth and concentration, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Give it 4-6 years in the cellar and drink it from 2014 to 2022.
