Any chance to meet a winemaker and to talk about and taste their wines is a priviledge. In this case it was even more appealling because I feel I have had very little exposure to Argentina as compared to other regions. I was interested to have a chance to learn about the Uco Valley.
We talked about weather, hazards like hail and the unique terrior in the shadow of the Andes. It is always a pleasure taste well-crafted wines and learn about their provenence. The added benefit was aside from having lovely, well-made wines, the price point was so approachable it seemed ashame not to share.
FINCA EL ORIGEN CABERNET SAUVIGNON - GRAND RESERVA, 2009 - $ 21.95 - 23.95
Also well worth the price but not available to those of us in Ontario, this wine has received accolades from many sources scoring high marks.
