Trivento Tribu, Cabernet Sauvignon Argentina 2010

Cabernet Sauvignon, from Mendoza Argentina, 13.5% vol (Promotion: 2 for $27.90)

Another quiet drink on a Saturday night.

We came to realize that Trivento Tribu from Argentina - a region not famous for their reds, actually tastes reasonable. We went in not expecting much, but upon first taste the tannins are rather rounded out, a slight fruity here; and i especially like its earthy feel.

The red doesn't fair badly for a bottle at this price range. We shared the bottle between us, and it doesn't dry us like our usual wineing. We simply don't feel thirsty after our drink tonight. Nice.

My last check of prices for the bottle at the NTUC Fairprice is now at $29.20 - which is a big jump from our buy last year. It now comes with an attractive print, but we don't know if its content has improved; else it shouldn't command the higher tag.
