Argentina is one of the top five wine-producing countries in the world. For a long time, most of the wine was made for local consumption. But in the past quarter-century, an increasing number of vintners began making very serious releases with the most widely planted red grape, Malbec. These made a big splash on the international scene, winning awards, garnering high ratings and amassing enthusiastic disciples. Torrontes is the star indigenous white grape, now on many restaurant menus for its refreshing, aromatic qualities and affordability. An increasing number of international grapes are grown, most notably Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda, Merlot, Syrah, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. All styles of wine are made from dry whites and reds, rosés, sparkling, late harvest sweet wines and fortified wines.

The flavors that are fruit forward, fresh yet with the aforementioned peppery notes. The mouthfeel is fresh, light and easy drinking for a Malbec....warming upo... Read More

  • Nieto Senetiner Bonarda Reserva 2007

    Snoothrank:

    Hmmm, boy this is good. A dark inky purple in the glass. Deep dark berry fruit, lush and rich on the nose with oak, plum and licorice. On the tongue there is flushing tannins that are gripping and do indeed pull the fruit to the mid-palate. There develops a sweet dark cherry backdrop and lively acidity that makes this a bountiful wine. This is a... Read More
