Wine of the week.

Happiness for $10 or less. Great article that has good recommendations for your week's worth of wine intake.

Here's their take on American Wines:

"I don’t usually think of American wines as great values. Too often the producers try to imitate expensive wines using artifice — mediocre cabernet sauvignon flavored with oak chips, for example — rather than making more honest wines from lesser grapes."

I concur. Except for the Pino Noir collections from the Willamette Valley in Oregon. Those are good.

Nice find, DHP. I'm ready to buy some wine as we speak.

Trapiche Oak Cask Malbec from Argentina is on sale at Argonaut for $7.99, and it is good. In the "specials" section behind the chardonnay as you walk in.
