2017 Trapiche Iscay Syrah-Viognier – A deep and heavy on blackberry nostril deceptively brings malbec impressions to thoughts, however the palate corrects that assumption with a mix of darkish fruit and vanilla splendidly balanced by forest herbs and a light-weight floral tease. A contact an excessive amount of on the oaky facet on the end, however by no means so overbearing that return visits aren’t out of the query. Open and revel in now, ideally over a hearty dinner. A- / $45

2020 Trapiche Oak Cask Cabernet Sauvignon – A strong interaction of blackberry and plum arrives on the nostril, with a light word of black pepper after a while out of the bottle. A medium end with nuances of raspberry, licorice, and a faint hint of campfire smoke spherical issues off properly. The 2018 Trapiche Medalla was a strong purchase at $20, and this practically replicates the feat at half the worth. You may wish to retailer it away for a spell earlier than consuming, although. B+ / $10
