A WORLD OF CHOICE.
To say that we know wine is something of an understatement. We’ve sniffed, glugged, gulped, and guzzled our way around the world, then gone back for seconds only to discover there was something else we hadn’t tried. With one of the largest and most extensive wine selections in South Florida, our restaurant alone offers more than two thousand different wines from the world’s most respected regions and producers. No vineyard is safe from our love for the grape.
Focusing on small, family-run producers from Argentina, Italy, Spain and France, we’re as fussy about our wine as we are about food. If you don’t believe us, come see for yourself.
Just give yourself plenty of time.
– Wines of the Month
‘Exploracion’ Malbec 2016 Paraje Altamira Valle de Uco /
Mendoza by Viña Las Perdices
After some refreshing months enjoying our light and effervescent
“Summer of Rosè” wines, we’re changing things up and celebrating
Argentina’s wonderfully bold Malbec wines this month.
The ‘Exploracion’ Malbec 2016 earned 93 points by Decanter and
a whooping 91 points by critical wine expert Stephen Tanzer —
quite a statement for this beautifully packaged thick and heavy bottle.
Looks like we are in for a treat!
This Malbec, is cultivated on the very unique terroir of the Valle de Uco,
a famous high altitude subregion of Mendoza, with rocky soils that
are rich in calcium, producing some of the most exceptional and long
lasting wines from Argentina.
The color is a beautiful deep violet red, with almost black undertones,
and a shiny ruby red that rims around the edge of the glass. Intense
fragrances of red fruit, cherry jam, ripe plum and floral notes of violet
add to the intriguing charm of this wine. The mouthfeel is full and
elegant with a good amount of freshness to balance out the powerful
red fruit and firm tannins that provide this great Malbec with a long
and satisfying finish.
The great harmony of fruity sweetness and vegetal freshness make it a
great accompaniment with our meats and grilled vegetables, rich pasta
dishes, or hard cheeses.
