Wish we had this before our trip last year to Mendoza, would love to see their winery. Very smooth and silky. And so much cheaper than Napa Cab. We still have 9 bottles left in the basement. Tough to sit and wait for the next one.
Excellent wine for the money. I have already bought a case for my cellar.
A very tasty cab, rich mouthfeel for the price, soft tannins, and classic cab notes. The softness and touch of plum would appeal to merlot fans.
5/11 Changed in the glass nicely for an hour. Not too heavy but vibrant and stood up to peppery filet without problem. Also excellent with homemade chocolate cake. Enjoyable and fun
Great deal if you like everyday medium-bodied reds. Not too much alcohol or tannins but very easy-drinking. The best red I've had under 15 dollars in a very long time. Would buy this again if I can find it.
Cabernet from Argentina?
My husband and I have been spoiled on the malbecs and even a Torontes or two. But never had a good Cabernet from there. This was an exception. Very decent fruit and not overly wooded. A welcome surprise for two people are not so adventurous.
coming around now
great with a good steak, becoming more complex as the rough edges soften with age, great for 15 bucks
very dry, full body, drinakable, but, not very complex, ok for 15 bucks
bought because of parker rating, rethinking that one, will try another in a few months. Very dry, tannins come through, not much fruit, ok.
Very good but must let it breath for 20 minutes
Nice but not a stand out.
I found this to be rather simple boring wine. Nothing awful about it, but nothing really good about it. We had half a glass and put a cork back into it to use as cooking wine.
Argentina Bad Cab
This Cab does not compare w/most CA Cabs. Very Heavy, tannic and harsh. Could be my taste buds, but my taste buds bought this based on a high Parker rating. Deeply disappointed. Now I do not stand a chance w/Parker but man, this does not present like any US Cabs I have ever tasted, even the cheapies. Sorry I blew this purchase
Bottle 2 -- Cab Reserve Mendoza
Nice flavor. Held flavor well over 3 days. No undue acidity.
