Argentina second most planted varietal. We had the tasting for Lamadrid on 8-16-22. I remembered this winery fondly from my sales rep days in Colorado. I always thought it outperformed in terms of QPR (Quality Price Ratio). The Bonarda was the hit of the night, as I am typing this on 8-21-22 we are out of stock and I need to order more.
This wine is going to grab you up front with its bright red fruit notes (think blackberry and plum), lavender, and hang with me here the smell of your garden bushes in the late spring. The body is slightly velvety.
