One varietal i’d like to mention is the ‘CIentoquince – Boedgas de La Rosa 2006’. This is a delicate wine with earthy and mineral notes. This wine has a good balance of sweetness and acidity also with well-balanced tannins, Argentina generally had a great harvest in 2006 so this wine is worth trying. A bottle can be bought at $30 dollars… see!


Another example is the Carinae Malbec 2006 is from the a CarinaE in Maipu, Mendoza, this Malbec shows a fresh, dry palate with smoky notes and  a hint of fruity notes too. This wine is easy to drink, with a striking finish. Almost unbelievably, this wine is valued at $30 U$dollars.
