Finca Flichman Cabernet Sauvignon 2007 Argentina
There's an increasing number of good values coming from the South American region these days and this is one of them. Aged 3 months in oak and bottle aged, this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza, Argentina is a full bodied fruit bomb. Very dark deep purple with ruby around the edges, there is a powerful nose of fruit and minerals, and a palate with concentrated ripe berries, cola and a finish of soft vanilla. Nice smooth acidity and mild tannins make this red a pleasure and 13% alcohol gives it a kick but not a jolt. A great buy for $8.99.
