Tasting Notes

Roberto Rodriguez Canal, part-time San Francisco resident, is one of the partners in Platense wines, the company who produces Aleph and brings it to market. According to Roberto: "We do not produce wine to please mass demand. Our wines are not over-extracted and definitely not over-oaked, we produce limited quantity of wine with its own character." The Aleph name is a tribute to a short story penned by the great master of fiction, Luis Borges. Fruit is sourced from Lujan de Cuyo, the traditional home base for Mendoza wine country's historic bodegas as well as the area containing the largest number of older vineyards. As usual, this bottling is bright and quite tasty, with excellent depth of flavor and texture. 13.9% abv. (Joe Manekin, K&L Argentine Wine Buyer)

    Aleph is one of the producers you may pass over because their label is pretty nondescript. You would be making a terrible mistake. Holding back their wines a little longer before release, the wine reaches the pinnacle of old world styling with new world intensity. Reaching the flavor profile of some Napa level greats - aromas of blackcurrant and melted licorice abound - this has style and structure that speak closer to Bordeaux or Cahors. You would pay twice as much for not nearly as interesting a wine from California, but you don't need to, the Aleph is hiding in plain site. Just ask for a bottle, we'll track it down for you.

    Aleph continues to make some of our favorite Malbecs - delicious and often with the added bonus of some extra bottle age. Fruit is sourced from Lujan de Cuyo, the traditional home base for Mendoza wine country's historic bodegas as well as the area containing the largest number of older vineyards. As usual, this bottling is bright and quite tasty, with excellent depth of flavor and texture.
