The Lurton Argentinian Experience

mmmm....what could be better than a nice relaxing dinner with a couple of nice wines. Joel supplied a Lurton malbec, I matched it with a Lurton Cab. These guys are brothers, they fly all over the world making or advising on making fine wines. If their name is on the label, it is usually worth trying the wine. The Bodegas Lurton, Reserva, Cabernet Sauvignon, 2003, Argentina, has a subtle iodine nose, is medium bodied, very dry, nice long finish. Their Malbec, Reserva, 2003, also from Argentina, is more subtle on the nose, but rougher on the palate. Shorter finish than the Cab, but growlier on the tongue. Also medium bodied. These two are food friendly, just a little different. It's nice to be able to open both and compare them with good food. The verdict: Both are a solid "good". Value: Fair at $16-18 per bottle. Drink them with food!!
