Lamadrid Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Cabernet Sauvignon from Argentina, South America
At first glance, this wine shows a well-defined red ruby color with blue hints. Aromas of smoke, blackberries, and raspberries; slightly spicy. It is robust with sweet and balanced tannins and a velvety finish.
The Wine Advocate - "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon spent 8 months in new French and American oak inner-staves. Fragrant aromas of Asian spices, incense, cassis, tobacco, and violets inform the nose of a layered, spicy, nicely balanced wine with a forward personality. Drink this excellent value over the next 3-4 years. "

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.

Lamadrid I loved you but you broke my heart.....Not really but kinda. I had really high hopes for this wine I find that there are some really great values in $20-25 Argentina Reds. This one is not bad by a long shot. Spicy on the the nose smooth initial taste with a long and enjoyable finish. Typical dark fruit and earth.

- Smooth & Supple
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%.
