El Bar Argentino 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon

Score: 5.3 – Dead Average2015/01/img_2212.jpg

Price: $8.99

About the Wine: A very light nose, even after waiting a few minutes. Some crushed red berry and a hint of mocha. The palate is what I would have expected from an $8.99 wine; simple, one-dimensional, uninspired. All in all this is a pass for me; there are better options under $9.99 with which to spend my money.

The wine did show much better with food, in this case Spaghetti Bolognese.

Value: This wine is apart of BC Liquor Stores Savvy Shoppers displays and with that in mind, I would strongly suggest spending the extra $1 and get the La Vuelta Malbec.

Added Value: As I noted above this wine is at its best with a Comfort Foods meal. Specifically one that has lots of carbs and protein.

Service: Twist off the cap and let it flow.
