Top 10 wines in the US press

3rd April, 2014 by Lauren Eads

2012 Gouguenheim Malbec, Mendoza, Argentina

tas_wow040214_12840924_8colColette Bancroft, writing in The Tampa Bay Times, recommended thisĀ “classic” wine from the Argentine region of Mendoza priced at a savvy $12.50.

She said: “The bouquet of this medium-bodied red, which is aged four months in oak, is complex and nuanced, with big blackberry accented by warm spice, a touch of chocolate cherry and a nice brambly edge. The same is true of its flavor profile, a spiky melange of blackberry, bramble, mocha and black currant, all well-structured with soft, round tannins. It finishes long with a big pop of black pepper at the end. All in all, this is a fine Malbec at a very good price.

“Pair it with a steak slathered in Argentine chimichurri sauce, a dark and rich lamb and wild mushroom ragu or smoky pit barbecue.”

Price: $12.50

    This wine is not South African. One of the grapes in the blend (Pinotage) is native to South Africa, but the wine is from the Russian River Valley appellation in California.

    I like to have undated on the top wine brand
