Don David Torrontes Reserve 2006

This Argentinian white, grown at mile high altitude, is a marvelous wine. The nose promises a rich but subtly blended mixture of fruits and the wine more than makes good on that promise. The finish is strong and lasting, with every sip one regrets that one is that much nearer the end of the bottle. Now the bad news: On the PLCB web site it lists for $21.19, which would put it well outside the parameters I have set for myself. However, we bought this bottle at a PA closeout sale for $8.99. If you come across any of it at that price, buy all there is of it without giving the matter a second thought.
