2016 Mendel Cabernet Sauvignon, Mendoza, Argentina $26

I’m frequently asked what’s a good Cab for under $30 and Argentina, rarely Napa, is often the answer. Much of this has to do with the old adage of location, location, location. Land in Napa Valley sells for a premium and as a result you have to charge more for the wine. The Mendel Cabernet Sauvignon hails from Mendoza and delivers a lot of wine for the price point. Well structured, cassis and blackberry notes with soft tannins and mouth-filling fruit. It’s a perfect pairing with your holiday roast.
