Río de Los Pájaros Reserve Progreso Torrontés 2020

Star bright yellow. Enticing nose of citrus rind and waxy marzipan. Zingy firm acidity from entry to finish wrapped in medium full body and layers of lemon, lemon rind, lemongrass, and new white flowers. That traditional “pop” of lemon in the finish tells me that the 2020 vintage is back from the watery depths that 2019 wrought. Seafood (white flesh fish especially), salads, poached chicken, soft cheeses, or even light cream sauces will shine in combination. It would make a refreshing sipper on a moderately arm day as well. Drink now through 2022. — a month ago

Reserve Rio de los Pajaros Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

This is a tannat grape wine, not cabernet sauvignon. I got the 2017 vintage and it was really splendid. Robust and well balanced with notes of wood and spices. — a year ago



Dark, heavy tannins.
Ripe fruit
Wonderful example of the grape

Progreso Tannat 2018

Dark red with near black core. Blackberry, black cranberry, and a hint of birch on the nose. Full bodied palate echoes the nose adding firm tannins (natch) and medium plus acidity surrounded by lush fruit. Enjoy with beef dishes or hearty stews. Great intro to the variety. Drink now through 2028. — 5 months ago

RPF Reserva Personal de la Familia Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Dark red purple in the glass. Full nose of red currant, roses, and bell pepper. Full bodied palate echoes the nose and delivers juicy black fruit on top. Firm, fuzzy tannins (medium plus) and medium acidity round out this wine that screams for beef. Drink now or in the next five years (by 2023). — 3 years ago

@Ron R , I know you like the premium stuff, but you should give this one a go.

@Byron C Mayes, you should take a closer look at my feed. Most of my wines are $35 or less. Many are below $15. I love finding great juice for less. But, yes, I do love drinking the top shelf stuff, too. Where do you live, Pa? If so, swing by our place early in the new year. Renovations will be finished, including our new cellar. We can have a fun evening. In the meantime, I will certainly taste what I’m sure is a great proposal. I wonder how easy it will be to get, tho. I see all your posts, but rarely see your tastings on sale in my area.

I just checked wine-searcher. Only 3 hits. Wine from Uruguay - very interesting...
