Best Value argentine Red
Sometimes we have these wines fall in our lap that make us get excited, knowing that we love the wine, it is a true value, and we can sell them it day long.
Usually there is a catch, like the wine is limited, so once we sell through our first 10 cases we cannot fill more orders. Well we have found such a wine and after a very successful email offering we have more on the way. The quality here speaks for itself, and a few of our customers who bought once have come back for seconds.
Recent stats have shown that American wine drinkers are shifting their consumption patterns away from straight varietals towards blends. We think that this is a very positive development and should really open up the options for wine drinkers across the board. We have come across a Malbec Cab blend from Mendoza, that is pretty special and packs a big bang for the buck, the 2011 Casarena 505 Esencia
. A fair amount of wines from Argentina that we try in the value category can be pretty ordinary and one-dimensional and that is why this bottle of wine caught our attention. From the sounds of things from Argentina these inexpensive, value wines are only going to become more expensive and what will remain to fill that price void will truly be of lower quality.
So look at the 2011 Esencia as something that drinks in the range closer to $20, but sells for closer to $10. Old vine fruit is now what is being put into this particular label, but that will change once younger plantings come on line and the brand gets more established. The fruit that currently comprises this blend will be put into a more expensive, higher tier offering. Bottom line is you are getting something that drinks way above and beyond its modest price point. We are offering the 2011 Casarena 505 Esencia for $11.99 and $9.99 a bottle when you purchase 6 or more bottles. Values like this are always worth searching out and something like this that over delivers and represents exceptional value will become harder to find in the not so distant future. Enjoy this great deal while you can.
