Puro Uno Vintage Argentina Wine Offering and all the wines from Argentina in the store on SALE!!



"In Europe we thought of wine as something as healthy and normal as food and also a great giver of happiness and well being and delight. Drinking wine was not a snobbism nor a sign of sophistication nor a cult; it was as natural as eating and to me as necessary." - Ernest Hemingway, "A Moveable Feast"


 


If you see that the wine bar is closed on our calendar of events you know that Toni and I are out of town.  That is the only reason why I take days off, otherwise I’m here drinking every day after 4pm and we have events on the calendar every Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights to keep our “Wine Drinking People” busy year round.


 


If you like Bordeaux, there is no better value in the world of Bordeaux varietals than what is coming from Argentina today.  On this offering you can get a 10+ year old wine from a great producer that is only $50 dollars a bottle!  And a wine made from 100+ year old vines that is under $100 a bottle and they only made 1588 bottles!!


We have followed this winery from the beginning and are sad to inform those that have been with us along the way that these are the last few vintages from this trail blazing producer of Malbec from Mendoza. 


I will never forget the first time Frank Baroudi called on me some 20 years ago and he tasted me on these wines that were 10x the price of anything that I had ever had from Argentina.  I looked at him and said: “The wines are very good but you are 20 years before your time, no one is ready to pay $200+ for a bottle of Malbec from Mendoza”. 


I was only part correct as the top level wines from Mendoza are now over $200 a bottle but Frank still had a small stash of these tiny production wines that we can now offer at ½ the oringinal release price and now they are ready to drink!!


We have a great selection of Wine from Argentina in the store so I have included all of them on this offering and many of them are 10+ years of age!

2008 Puro Uno Malbec Gran Reserva Mendoza

2011 Puro Uno Malbec Gran Reserva Mendoza

Price: $60.00               Your Price: $52.80    


The Gran Reserva is a stunning example of what the most serious old vine Malbec can become when everything comes together the right way. Produced from a Single Vineyard located in Lujan de Cuyo.  Lots of dark blackberry fruit, fig and dark spices with notes of toasty oak and some dark earthy highlights on the nose.  A big and chewy wine on the tongue but with ripe round tannins big but still quite fresh and a long-layered finish.  This wine should age for another decade or more in your cellar but it is starting to drink very nicely with a few hours in a decanter.  The 2008 and 2011 vintages in Mendoza are classic in style with excellent freshness, they have the concentration and depth of a Mendoza wine but the balance of Bordeaux.


 


A bit about Puro Uno:


This project started in the head of Frank Baroudi over 30 years ago, while attending college at USC, Los Angeles. During his freshman year, Frank's roommate’s grandfather passed, and he being a connoisseur of all things fine, left him a 45,000 bottle wine cellar and a few hundred boxes of pre-embargo Cuban cigars to enjoy. The boys learned quickly about first growths as that was 90 % of the cellar and discovered the best of Lafite, Latour, Margaux, Petrus, Haut Brion & Y’quem – the great vintages – 29’s, 45’s, & 61’s. This was only 1976 and little did they know, they still had the 82’s to discover. Although Frank's buddy had a few extra years of exposure, Frank quickly caught up. He enjoyed concerts at the Hollywood Bowl with bottles of fine vintage Champagnes followed by magnums of ‘45 Petrus… not too tough to take. This was Franks's early exposure to the rarefied world of fine vintage wine and cigars that started his yearning to create his own extraordinary wines and cigars. At the time, Frank was in college to become an engineer and that is indeed what he accomplished. After five years at USC, he left with a Master’s Degree in Electrical Engineering and Computers and went out to tackle the real world. Frank eventually worked for one of the largest computer companies in the world, had an amazing expense account and was extraordinarily successful at his job.


Fast forward thirty years…Frank finally had the opportunity to realize his lifelong dream… to make incredible, world class wines by blending varietals that had never before been combined. Frank used the best grapes possible and considered the individual virtues of eachvarietal and how these attributes would be affected by combining them as he created his blends.


By that time, Frank had been to all the well-known growing and production regions in California, France, Italy and Spain to learn the secrets of “wine making”. It all came together just over a decade ago when he went to investigate the Chilean and Argentinean wine culture. Frank discovered Mendoza, Argentina – a place that really turned him on. It had such an intriguing environment, with rich, complex fruit of amazing depth and quality and an economy that would not take millions of dollars to start a modest winemaking project.
