Zorzal Wines 2017 Eggo Tinto de Tiza$24.99–$126.00
Tupungato Mendoza Argentina
Wine Advocate 94 Rating
The mouthfeel of the 2017 Eggo Tinto de Tiza was like biting into a piece of chalk (“tiza” is the Spanish word for chalk), the texture provided by the limestone-rich soils from Gualtallary, especially in the higher part of this large region. This wine is not about the varieties (it's a blend to start with) but about the place, the soils, the local vegetation, the austerity and the wilderness.

Zuccardi 2016 Malbec Finca Piedra Infinita$149.99
Uco Valley Mendoza Argentina
I was blown away by the 2016 Finca Piedra Infinita, a wine I have been anticipating because I’ve seen the progression of the wine over the last few years. They use almost 40 different components to make this wine from small plots within the vineyard, especially the soils they call “supercalcáreo” (super limestone). The other type of soil they use is what they call “gravas calcáreas” (limestone gravels), and they don’t use any of the grapes from the deeper soils that go into the Q range. The wine has reached a stratospheric level of precision, symmetry and elegance in 2016 that is really captivating. Everything seems to be in its place; there is great harmony, the aromatics are clean and pure and the texture is like liquid chalk. There is power and elegance, energy and finesse. This is a really outstanding wine that summarizes the hard work at Zuccardi in the last few years. Bravo! 6,400 bottles were filled in February 2017. Drink: 2019-2036.
Zuccardi 2017 Malbec Concreto$34.99
James Suckling 96 Rating
This is a unique wine for Mendoza with a cool-fruit and serious slate character. Undertones of dried herbs and bark. Full body, integrated fruit and tannins. Wet earth, too. Reminds me of the reds in Spain's Galicia, but so new in Argentina. Drink now but better in 2020. SP40-3
Zyme 2018 From Black to White iL Bianco$29.99–$150.00
Vinous 90 Rating
Vivid straw color. An aromatic nose hints at Manzoni Bianco, with nuances of white pepper and ginger complementing pomaceous orchard fruit aromas. Then dense and suave with flavors of fennel, pear and apple, plus repeating notes of ginger on the long slightly warm finish (the label reports 13% alcohol). A complicated blend of 60% Rondinella Bianca (a mutation of the red Rondinella grape), 15% Gold Traminer, 15% Kerner and 10% Incrocio Manzoni that spent 6 months on the lees.
