Lamadrid malbec $14.00
Approachable and packed with flavors of red, blue and black fruits, subtle black pepper and licorice. Smooth tannins with a lovely balance of acidity, yet slightly rustic, making this wine fun to drink. Although this is considered an "entry level" malbec, it still hails from a single vineyard estate. Outstanding quality at an outstanding price.
Durigutti Cabernet Franc $16.00
Say what? Now a Cab Franc from Argentina?? Argentina is taking over! With a dark intense color, hints of baked fruit, violets and vanilla. Nice soft tannins support the ample rich fruit. Argentina has taken another French grape and done it remarkable well!
Pascual Toso $25.00
This wine hails from Barrancas, a small town within Mendoza. It has a slightly warmer climate resulting in soft, ripe wines. This Cab shows black currant, tomato leaf, baking spices and cedarwood. Lovely tannin structure balanced with great acidity. This will definitely pair well with hard salty cheeses or your next steak dinner.
Catena Zapata Nicolas $119.00
Picture a blind tasting where some Argentinian cowboys (and cowgirls) destroy some French first growths, not just once but again and again. Pricey yet, but actually the lowest priced wine of this ratings pedigree by a wide margin. As in repeatedly kicks Haut Brion and Gaya’s butt.
