Try This Wine: Septima Red 2005

After reading rave reviews of the Malbec region of Argentina, I rushed out to get one. What I found was a great red table wine from Mendoza, Argentina. While the vintage isn't great, it was good enough to let the tannins settle out a little and gave this wine a smooth taste.

Actually, this wine caused a bit of a debate between Kendall and I. While I thought it was very dry, he didn't think it was at all. However, the medium body was there.

In fact, the body was rather luscious and juicy. However, it was a little too sour and so the dry ending didn't counter too well.

All in all, a very enjoyable wine, and one I recommend for trying wines from this region. I look forward to what the Malbec region has to offer.
