It’s been awhile since the last wine post, and as I looked through some past photos I found one to share.
Producer: Bodega Alma Negra
Geographical Location: Valle de Uco, Agrelo, La consulta, Vistaflores and Rivadavia (Argentina)
Color: Gold, hint of pink
Bubbles: Small, long-lasting (sign of a well done sparkling wine)
Smell: Berry, anise, candy citrus
Taste: Both J and I were perplexed by this wine. At first sip, straight out of the fridge (very cold) it tasted of anise/licorice and a very hard to describe berry-ish flavor. As it warmed slightly it was pure berries and cream, very delicious. We both enjoyed it.
Comments: Paid about $15. Good value.
Food: Crème Brûlée, tres leches with berries, brie and other soft cheeses
