The Vines of Mendoza

Carlos Pulenta Vistalba Corte B


Corte B LabelThe 2004 Carlos Pulenta "Vistalba Corte B" is one of the better value wines in the Mendoza province. The wine is the middle wine in the range of Vistalba wines produced by Carlos Pulenta. The top of the line being the Corte A and the bottom being Corte C. Hands down the Corte B is the current favorite of the staff at the Vines. The Corte B is a dark ruby in the glass with a rich loamy nose of wet earthy and black cherries. In the mouth this wine is full bodied, round, and with just a touch of pepper or spice. The Corte B spends 12 months is concrete tanks that have not been surfaced with epoxy as the wine maker believes that the rough surface aids in microxygenation. A blend of 42% Malbec, 32% Cabernet, 16% Bonarda and 10% Merlot. Wine Spectator gave the wine a 90.
