We’d often post on social media our wine of the night. Therefore, we thought it’d be great to share these pics with our tasting notes. Therefore, it made sense to create as a WordPress blog and that’s how OurWineTonight.Com was born. We’re thrilled with the reception of this blog. Thank you for your continued support.

Our wine tonight is the 2018 Argentine Malbec from Alamos.
We just love Malbec from Argentina.
Cultivated of the Mendoza, Argentina Vineyards. These vineyards are among the highest elevations of any of the world’s vineyards.
The most respected James Suckling rated at 91 points.
Decanted for 60 minutes.
Deep inky purple color.
Nose very expressive of black cherries, plum, cocoa, fresh violets, cedar and a pronounced smokiness.
Dry, medium bodied, with low to medium tannins.
Flavor notes of black cherry, blackberry, red plum, and a distinctive mid-palate of vanilla, black currants, black pepper, and spice, while the lingering finish is reminiscent of a freshly baked hot out of the oven blueberry pie.
An excellent traditional Argentine Malbec.
9 months aged in 60% French oak and 40% American oak.
At the price, often under $10, this is a great drinking wine.
Our wine tonight is the Kan-Gria from Parker-Binns Vineyard in the Tryon Foothills of North Carolina.
Estate grown red wine with natural spices.
Color of freshly squeezed cranberry juice.
The nose is tropical with hints of pink grapefruit and red plum.
Fruit forward profile bursting of red berries such as huckleberries, mulberries, and wild blackberries with pomegranate and bing cherry. Mid-palate unmask hints of citrus, blood orange, lime, and cilantro. The finish shows soft notes of lavender, vanilla, and strawberry.
Sangria is a Spanish term describing a mix of red wine and fruit! Sangria is really booming at craft wineries as a summer drink of choice. Could Sangria replace rosé as the next big summer wine? We think so!
Parker-Binns jumped ahead of the curve canning their sangria…..uh Kan-Gria!
Don’t be afraid to blend with a little coconut rum!
