Kravitz still has a knack for finding good wines at great prices – Robert Parker, Parker on Wine, BusinessWeek, 8/20 & 27, 2007


HPS has had great success with its own wine brands from France (La Noble) and Spain (Panarroz), and introduced Notro, the first HPS-owned brand from Argentina, in early 2008. It is named after the native flower of the same name (Notro) that is often found growing in Andean mountain meadows in the southern spring.

The Sangiovese-Bonarda combines the elegance of Tuscan Sangiovese with the burly, mountain muscle of Piedmont's Bonarda - New World meets Old and they get along really well! The Torrontes is a classic version of this varietal, with a subtlety to go along with the intense aromas, crisp fruit and vivid personality.

Both Malbecs are from Lujan de Cuyo, the fabled "First Zone" (Primera Zona) of Mendoza, in the heart of Argentina's wine country. This is where the Malbec varietal first achieved greatness. It is still the premier wine district for Argentina's flagship varietal, and is home to some of the oldest Malbec vines in the country. The basic Notro Malbec is unoaked, and a textbook example of what good Argentine Malbec should be. The Malbec "Barrica" comes from older parcels, and the wine enjoyed 6 months of ageing in 1, 2 and 3 year old French oak barrels.
