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
‘Los Haroldos’ Estate Blend 2016
‘Los Haroldos’ Estate Blend 2016 is our wine for this month and we think it is the perfect way to start a new year!
Being a blend from Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot this surprising red has the best attributes of these three amazing red varietals. Los Haroldos owns about 3,000 hectare of vineyards with prime locations in and around the east of Mendoza including vineyards in the prime sub-region of ‘La Consulta’ in the Uco Valley. They are also owned by the renown wine producer Familia Falasco.
What to expect? At first, there is a very clean and shiny cherry red color with a sparkle of violet. On the nose, the Cabernet Sauvignon comes through with cocoa powder, green peppers and the Petit Verdot is adding a beautiful floral violet note, making it very promising.
The mouthfeel is full and satisfying, very focused and juicy, with silky tannins it is leading with notes of red cherries, blackberry, some plum, cocoa, shaved coconut and bay leaf. At the end there’s delicious licorice and floral violets – all the flavors are wrapped up in a great acidity. This wine is still quite young but already a great choice to accompany lamb and beef dishes, grilled or braised and with a good amount of fat. Or with an assortment of aged hard cheeses.
