We like wine. But we don't understand all the tasting and smelling notes. When someone starts talking about tobacco, blackberries, lemon rinds and oaky barrels as a good thing, our minds think "ashtray and trashcan at an orchard"! We just know what we like and what we don't like. So occasionally we'll post a review, our own review, it might make you want it or not, you might have a totally different opinion, but hopefully it'll make you laugh.
It's all good fun, right...?
We picked up this bottle the other day. It's Martin Fierro, an Argentinian Cabernet Sauvignon. Don't Cry for me Argentina...yeah, maybe on this bottle you will. It pours out as a deep beautiful color in the glass. Sort of what you'd think a wine color should be. Alas, the taste was a bit off putting. The best description we can give is 'bitter'. I'm sure there is some technical term that goes along with that, but hey, bitter is not something you want to taste in the first sip. It has a kind of a flat taste too. Not very memorable, except in a bad way of course, i.e. "Remember when we had that? Don't buy it again"
Now please don't equate the screw top with quality. Many bottles are going to a screw top, even some very expensive bottles. This was $8.99, on sale. I think the regular price is about $11.00.
TASTING AND SMELLING NOTES:
I don't know, um, lions, tigers and bears...oh my?
PAIRS NICELY WITH:
Bitter memories, Keeping up with the Kardashians, sticking your tongue on a 9volt battery
We didn't like it, in case you couldn't tell.
Will not be buying it again.
