Keush Origins Brut (750ml)
Voskehat from Vayots Dzor, Armenia
B-21 Top Recommendation
Read More

"With approximately 6,000 years of viticultural history, Armenia is considered by some to be the cradle of wine. Still, the country struggles to get the recognition it deserves. On the sparkling wine front, look no further than Keush, the brainchild of Lebanon-born winemaker Vahe Keushguerian, who spent time in Italy and California before taking a fateful trip to Armenia in 1997. A key callout for this traditional brut is the indigenous Armenian fruit used in its production: voskehat and khatoun kharji grapes sourced from 100-year-old vines grown some 1,800 meters above sea level. Ideal for cool-climate sipping, the budget-friendly wine offers fantastic salinity and citrus notes that play excellently with cheeses, cured meats, and shellfish."

Beyond Champagne: The Best Sparkling Wines Under $50

The NV Keush Sparkling is a terrific wine, as well as a screaming value. Classy notes of white flowers, stone fruits, and obvious minerality flow to a ripe, textured, balanced sparkler that has way more depth, richness, and length than the price point would have you believe. Drink it over the coming year or two.

2016 Mosquita Muerta Sapo de Otro Pozo (750ml)
Malbec from Uco Valley, Mendoza, Argentina
B-21 Top Recommendation
Read More

Jose Millan's Mosquita Muerta wine project began in 2010 at his family's Los Toneles winery in Mendoza, sourcing grapes in and around Mendoza's Uco Valley. Winemaker Bernardo Bossi shares Jose's passion for creating exceptional Malbec blends, having been head winemaker for Alma Negra, Tikal and Siesta wines, and eventually Casarena. The wines are all named "tongue in cheek" by Jose, whose family wasn't exactly welcomed into the world of Argentinian wine, having made their fortune in the grocery business. Perro Callejero translates as "Stray Dog," and Sapo de Otro Pozo is "Toad from Another Well," the Argentinian slang for "fish out of water." The name of the project "Mosquita Muerta" is an Argentinian slang expression itself – referring to the idea that while his competitors were mistakenly underestimating Jose's abilities to create world-class wines, they would soon find his wines deserving of top ratings. With 90 plus point ratings for the 2018 Mosquita Muerta Perro Callejero Malbec and the 2016 Mosquita Muerta Sapo de Otro Pozo, it seems the Wine Advocate's Luis Gutiérrez agrees.

The 2016 Sapo de Otro Pozo is a blend of Malbec with 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Syrah from different vineyards in the Valle de Uco, fermented in different vessels. Half of the wine aged in new French barriques. There is a bit more influence from the oak here, combining smoky and spicy aromas with notes of aromatic herbs, wild berries and flowers. It has a round palate with moderate acidity and some more tannins. It might require more time in bottle and/or powerful food. 13,000 bottles were filled in February 2018.

The 2018 Perro Callejero Blend de Malbec also mixes grapes from different parts of the Mendoza, looking for complexity and a combination of the riper characteristics from Luján and the sharper style from Uco. All wines keep very good freshness and relatively high acidity, as they always think about their wines in the context of gastronomy; these are wines for the table. This has varietal aromas and moderate ripeness, violets, red and black cherries and a pinch of spices. The palate is medium-bodied, serious and balanced, with a good combination between austerity and juiciness. 24,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in June 2019.
