An Oldie But A Goodie

One of my favorite everyday wines, both red and white, comes from Argentina. I thought I'd seen the last of Fuerza until I took a trip to Trader Joe's on Valentine's Day. I was excited to see my old friend, the 2007 Fuerza Blancos, a light and refreshing white wine made from the Torrentes grape. A couple of rows above that, to my heart's delight, I found the Blancos redheaded sister, the Fuerza Malbec. I really liked the '08 but had to try the '09 and I am happy to report that it is just as fruity and delicious as its predecessor. Maybe a little raisin-y(for lack of a better word) but no after-taste and still good. You can't beat the price! At only $4.99 a bottle, the Fuerza Malbec makes for a great everyday red and the Blancos is one to savor on those warm and sunny days...like today. Cheers!
