".....this is a home run....."
"There is so much hit and miss Vinho Verde on the market. Not so with the 2015 Afectus Vinho Verde this is a home run. This is astonishingly wonderful, gloriously fresh and alive. It is one of the more aromatic wines. It is refreshing with well-balanced acidity. The juicy finish can make you drool. A lovely and very drinkable wine that makes us wonder once again why we dont see more of these single varietal bottlings on store shelves."

"..... rich flavors emerge on the long, velvety finish....."
"Catena, in my opinion is the most important winery in Argentina, producing both quantity and quality, which is very uncommon these days. This is a delicious, fruit-driven version of Malbec. It is a dark and jammy red that has enough acidity. This has good weight, but stays focused. Layers of smoke and rich flavors emerge on the long, velvety finish. What is most pleasing is to find such a famous winery refusing to rest upon its laurels, anything wearing the Catena name is guarantee to represent quality and value. Why can't all large producers be like Catena?"

90 points too!!

A cut above most Extra Dry Prosecco of this designation, featuring bright mixed citrus, a creamy feel and a crisp finish with no beery aftertaste, just clean and bright all the way. This can run the table from aperitif to light dessert -- a perfect outdoor summer dinner companion.
