Winecology: Terrazas de los Andes - "Alto" Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 - Mendoza, Argentina

A simple, but enjoyable cabernet from Argentina. The Alto is the most basic line of Terrazas' wines with grapes souced from all over the Mendoza region. The colors were dark garnet in the glass and sediment was visible. On the nose the wine's aromas weren't very powerful but had plum notes. In the mouth tannins provided a firm structure. Again the flavors were not overwhelming, but dark raisins, fruity jams and oak presented themselves. A decent experience at a decent price.

Rating - 8.0 out of 10
Price - $12
