Argento Reserva Malbec 2008

Mendoza, Argentina

Reviewed: November 7, 2009

$12.95
    85/100
     

    Kacaba Vineyards Gypsy Red Vqa>

    Ontario, Canada

    $11.95

      My Review: A pale, light red that's bursting with fresh berries and acidity. A hint of mushroom and spice adds a little complexity. More juicy fruit on the finish makes this a good food wine. I preferred it a little chilled. Score: 82/100

                Red Truck Pinot Noir 2009

                United States

                  My Review: An earthy wine with lots of sour cherry and a little liquorice on the nose. It's definitely a warm climate style of Pinot in that it's smooth and quite fruity. There are some very soft tannins and a hint of something sweet on the finish. Score: 80/100
