2005 Terrazas (de los Andes), Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza ($9.99 NH Liq Store). Alcohol level: 13.5%. This is a very nice Cab for under $10.

The wine gives you a nice blast of red and black fruit on the nose and upfront. Even more fruit including noticeable cassis in the complexity in the middle. It is smooth and tannin free. It finishes nicely.

Matched it with grillpaned sirloin and succatash last night, and with some goat gouda for lunch today. Very nice for the price.

If I can find it, that would be a good choice for a comparison of Cabernet Sauvignon wines from different regions.

Their Malbec is really, really nice, also.
