Many wine aficionados literally run to the LCBO for highly rated wine. It is a game to snatch a winner before others beat you to it. In this case it is a Los Clop Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 from Argentina rated a 97 by Decanter Magazine. When I see a score like this I think sometimes a reality check is required. Is there wineflation involved? What do market analysts think of the wine?
We are off to perhaps 52 week high with a nose redolent with blueberry, blackberry, cassis all tinged by smoke and dark chocolate. The market analysts from Aromatic Capital forecast a beat the street for the next quarter! The economists from Palate Infrastructure International cite the well integrated structure of the wine with acids and tannins in glorious harmony noting that investors should focus on the fulsome body of the wine noting that investors in a 3–4-year investment time horizons will see a decent return on their capital. Notes to their report state management of Bodega Clop have structured the operations of the wine so that currently its fruit is still deeply embedded in the wine and with favourable cellaring conditions management projects full development of the wine by 2025. The Albanian State Pension Board in a recent earnings call with Bodega Clop queried why management is insisting the wine be chilled slightly. Clop’s chief export officer said this is nothing the analysts should be concerned with as the practice of serving red wines slightly chilled reflects consistent practice among savvy wine consumers. Failure to chill red wines particularly in the summer months will lead to a flabby and sloppy impression!
RKS Wine agrees with the direction Bodega Clop is taking with the Cabernet Sauvignon and advises buy a few NOW to last over the next few years as market timers rarely prosper. Forget dollar cost averaging with this wine as given its quality it may be sold out quickly meaning in a few weeks it may unavailable and my contacts at Bodega Clop indicate inventory is very low.
Baloney Investment Management located in Jerks and Caicos Islands noted the subtle elegance of the wine.
In the recent earnings call with Bodega Clop Ravage and Savage Portfolio Managers asked the chief Foodie Officer of Bodega Juan Pepita what food the wine suit as their investors would were demanding an answer. Pepita states beef and more beef or wild boar stew! Pepita said for Omega concerns the beef should be grass fed.
Tony Bogart of Laramie Manufacturing informed RKS Wine that purchasers of the Laramie Plastics luxury Garden Set would receive a free case of the wine with purchases over $2000 USD disclosing this in its annual SEC filings.
