A busy time in the wine trade. It seems the moment the kiddies returned to school the PR companies and retailers received a shot in the arm and jumped into ‘run-up-to-Christmas’ work mode. I lost count of the number of tastings, lunches, dinners, and so on that are happening.

The main event this week (that I attended at any rate) was the annual Wines of Argentina Tasting, held at Lord’s Cricket ground in London. Train delays, re-routings and so on resulted in a late arrival; just a brief half-hour to taste a few wines before decamping to the Naked Wines Argentinean Zero to Hero tasting I was also to attend.

This was one of the wines I sampled. I adore the label – if you want shelf-presence then this has it in droves. The Budeguer Tucumen Cabernet Sauvignon 2011, Mendoza [Adegga / Snooth] is not yet available in the UK. Its retail price is just a tenner, great value for a nicely peppery, blackcurrant rich wine.

Tucumen Cabernet Sauvignon is the latest in the regular Sunday Wine Snapshots series highlighting photographs with a wine/drink related theme, whether bottles, glasses, vineyards or the back scenes of wineries.
