Landed in Buenos Aires and of course the first thing we did was look for a local restaurant that had a good grill [Image: smile.gif]

We are staying in the Recoleta area, which is georgeous, but also a bit pricey (then again, anything after Machu Picchu's Santuary Lodge and Cusco's Monasterio looks cheap.....)

Good local restaurant located and promptly ordered a 500 ml bottle (which is my perfect size.. my wife will take a sip and I get more than half bottle) of this malbec. Very nice wine for the price. Berries, cherries and cassis, followed by vanilla, soft tannins, and ripe smooth texture. Good modern wine and went perfect with a number of pieces of steaks that we ordered......yes more than two [Image: smile.gif]
