Random Wine Review Aconga Cabernet

Another entry in the good wine under $10.00, my husband said in spite of the $5.99 price tag he only paid $3.50, "nothing but the best". Aconga Malbec - Cabernet Sauvignon from 2010.

I found this wine quite pleasant and easy to drink DH pretty much puts all wines in the fridge (gasp), anyway straight from the fridge it is a bit too harsh, but pour into a glass and let it air out and warm up a bit it is quite nice. It is not overly dry but you can definitely taste the dry tones of the Cabernet.

I also used this as my wine in chicken cacciatore which called for a chianti or dry wine, this was close enough, though I will say 1/2 cup of this wine was a bit too much.
