It's Organic!



My birthday was a couple of weeks ago and we have celebrated with several activities. One of the things we did to celebrate was visiting a local Argentinean restaurant called Caminito. Great meat and wine!!! The first time I tried the Domaine Jean Bousquet wine was at this restaurant several months ago. First I tried Malbec on our wedding anniversary early this year, then a Cabernet Sauvignon several months later. We repeated Cabernet last week with New York Strip steak! Mmmmmm...


What's different about this wine? It's organic!!! Yes.... Jean Bousquet's wines from Valle de Uco in Mendoza, Argentina are from organically grown vines. Organic grapes, as explained in DJB site, allow unique flavors to shine... I don't know about that, but the wine is exceptional.


Malbec is always a favorite for me, but Cabernet Sauvignon was also great with meat. Most of their wines have been recognized and gained high points from experts. For more information you can visit their website here.
Salud!

Joan. Thanks for your comment. Pinot Noir grape is usually better with typical Thanksgiving feast... However, the best wine is the one in your glass... I hope you enjoy your selection.
