Follow me to Nieto Senetiner in Mendoza Argentina

Follow me, on horseback, to Nieto Senetiner in Mendoza Argentina. The view of the vineyards on horseback is spectacular. The Asado barbecue lunch was extraordinary. Their wines, over the top, unbelievably amazing. Especially their Don Nicanor Barrel Select Malbec. Enough to make you buy many bottles. I did!!! #malbec #lujan #mendoza #argentina #vineyard#winery #horsebackriding #ewr

“Chacra wines have the Burgundy elegance with the flavor-richness of California. These wines are receiving the highest ratings among all Pinot Noirs in Argentina. Everything is hand-made here. My favorite, the Chacra -TREINTA Y DOS- Pinot Noir from their 1932 vineyards (ergo the name in Spanish) is hand-numbered on each bottle.”

8 Eighth Best Wine in The World for 2017

8 Eighth Best Wine in The World for 2017, by the #winespectatortop100. Tasted this wine last week in Beverly Hills. This Meyer Vineyards 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is big, bold and rich as you would expect from a Napa Valley Cabernet; however, it doesn’t overpower the beautiful fresh ripe fruit flavors in this Cab. It’s unique, extraordinary, deserving this high honor. #top100 #bestwine #cabernetsauvignon #napavalley #ewr #winner
