There are many wine choices available from Argentina, but many wine drinkers are a bit wary. Take the leap south and try one of these great and affordable wines.
Gascon 2004 Malbec
This wine features the classic deep purples color of Malbec. It has a rich, dark fruit nose with hints of earth and wood. For $13 you will get a concentrated wine with flavors of berries, plums, and chocolate. The mouth is has a rich, velvety feel.
Valentin Bianchi 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon
Mmmmm, this is a great comfort wine. It is friendly, but doesn’t skimp on flavor. There are aromas of cherry cobbler. The flavors are of juicy cherries and cassis. The flavors are rounded off with black pepper and coffee. This is a perfect wine to serve to friends when grilling good steaks. This wine is a great deal at $15.
Felipe Rutini 2003 Malbec
Argentina is producing good quality Malbec. This is not always the easiest wine for new wine drinkers to enjoy. The Felipe Rutini with its open nature and fruity qualities overcomes this problem. The aromas are full of cherries, strawberries, and red licorice. The wine is smooth with flavors of raspberries, cherries, and vanilla. If you like Merlot give this wine a try.
