Argentinian Wines

Last week my husband and I attended a wine tasting at our favorite local restaurant, Gino's. The night featured wines from Argentina. We ended up going by their Wine Shoppe and picking up three bottles of wine with two of them being Argentinian reds we tasted that evening. I recommend checking these out. Both are very affordable, under $10.

Condor Peak Merlot - It's from the Mendoza region; light and fruity on the nose; rich, medium body with hints of black cherry and coffee flavors.

tierra adentro - also from the Mendoza region; very nice table red wine; well-balanced; deep fruity flavors; pairs nicely with red meats

Keep in mind I am no wine connoisseur, but I promise both of these are very smooth, enjoyable wines.

  1. I have just started loving Argentinian wines, especially Malbecs. I don't know what made me buy it but we had it one night with steak and it was delicious. Thanks for the recommendations!
