A consistently great value, this Argentine Cab has been a staff favorite for several vintages now. Bold, smoky flavor, loaded with cassis, blackberry and plum. Gripping tannins give this wine excellent structure; perfect for pairing with red meat or hearty pasta dishes.

Argentina may be renowned for its Malbec; however, to my delight, after tasting the 2005 and now the 2007 vintage, I am praying they do not pull up any Cabernet vines! Maipe also makes excellent Malbec and Bonarda, but their Cabernet is one of those rare finds in the wine world mdash; try a bottle and then stock up with a case. This red has everything yoursquo;d find in a $20 California offering. Plush, fruit-forward, but with fresh herbs, licorice and vanilla adding to the complexity mdash; really mind-boggling how Maipe can produce such depth in a wine at this price point.

These high altitude Cabernet vineyards, literally at the foot the Andes Mountains, make a wine with ripe blueberry, black currant, and dark chocolate flavors and hints of tobacco and smoke. Itrsquo;s hard to find a great Cab, let alone a wine under $10, that is as smooth and generous as this one.

A simple and flavorful blend of ripe strawberry and cinnamon aromas directs this muscular cabernet to a steak.

Argentinian reds are produced to be consumed young while still vibrant; Maipe has produced a Cabernet Sauvignon that captures the essence of bright fruit and spice and characterizes this delicious style. Bright fruit vanilla and black cherry round out this exceptionally earthy effort.
