Mendoza, Argentina. One of the nicest sub $15 Cabernets I've had. Earthy currant, dark and red berry flavors. Medium bodied and full in the mouth the wine is elegant and balanced. Dusty tannins on the cocoa infused, a nice touch, linguring finish. A definite case buy. 14.3% Alc/vol. $13

the more wine I drink from Argentina, the more I like the country. Such a solid price/quality ratio.

Popped my second to last bottle tonight paired with steak on the grill, French Fries and salad. What is it that WW always sez? I SHOULD HAVE BOUGHT MORE!!!!! At the top of it's game. Would blow away most $30+ California Cabs. Has morphed to full body status showing concentrated blackberry, currant, dark chocolate, and port flavors. Beautiful and an Eileen WOW wine.
