Chakana 2007 Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon (Argentina)
Gotta love a Friday night when you can walk down to the cellar, grab any old bottle off the shelf and enjoy it with no pretenses. That's just what I did here with this 2008 Cab from Argentina (not exactly an "old" bottle, but it is "any"). Lots and lots of red fruit and spice in this one - totally pleasant and enjoyable ... a real sipping wine and one to pair well with the pizzas we shared with friends. But it's a good news / bad news kinda wine: the good news is it is drinking well now and is really very fruity ... bad news: drink it up quickly because it has a plastic cork, and that means no chance for longevity ... sigh.
