Lamadrid Cabernet Sauvignon 2008
Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina, South America
We strive for a terroir-driven Cabernet Sauvignon that has color and fruit concentration that over-delivers at its price point.
Wine Spectator - "A very ripe, polished style, with flattering fig, licorice and fruitcake notes that glide through the velvety finish. A crowd pleaser. Drink now."
Wine Enthusiast - "Strong and extracted, and needing a few minutes to settle. The palate is concentrated, dark and chewy, with ripe berry flavors that hint at being medicinal and raisiny but don’t fully go there. While this is nothing earth-shattering, for $12 it's complete and should offer mass appeal."
International Wine Cellar - "Medium red-ruby. Enticing aromas of plum, currant, cocoa powder and spices. Sweet and supple but with insidious acidity giving the wine vinosity and a light touch. In a cooler style, depending as much on its acids as on its tannins for structure. Finishes with a lingering note of chocolatey oak."

Notable FactsUnlike its Chilean neighbor, Argentina's vineyards are spread out around the country. The best known region is Mendoza, almost parallel to Santiago to the west. Mendoza contains the sub-regions of Maipu (pronounced MY-pu) and San Rafael. Grape-wise, the most important white is Chardonnay, making wine similar to California's style on the variety. Another fun white grape to try is Torrontes. Almost only grown in Argentina, Torrontes makes wines that are crisp, aromatic and easy-drinking. Some of the best versions of this wine come from the northern region of Salta, with very high altitude vineyards. As for the reds, Cabernet Sauvignon is the main grape for many wines leaving the country, but Malbec, the grape Argentinians like to call their own, makes very distinctive wines that are structured, dense and velvety. Many more varieties happily grow in the country, but for export, and consistent quality, these are the primary grapes.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
