Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina; 13% ABV
$5 (I think) at the Richmond, CA, store some weeks ago. No longer there.
After being open a couple hours, the wine shows soft, ripe, tangy, fruit of black raspberry / almost blackberry, dark cherry, purple plum / pit, violets / licorice, wood / coffee, with somewhat zingy acid of hibiscus tea and mild, chewy tannin on the finish. It’s not a must-have, but it’s a quite good New World wine for the price. It would make a good stand-in for Zinfandel.
The next day, the last bit in the glass was redder and more acid. It was still pretty tasty, but it’s probably better consumed the first day.
This is one of many wines I bought before and while I was not drinking. Please bear with me while I work through this backlog.
