I really have lived my life under the assumption had I could drive a Jeep to South America – our only friendly neighbour to the south.
I’m wrong – according to google. Look here!
Google maps tells me it’s not possible. And those google people are presumably smarter than me.
Tonight I’m drinking a lovely wine from Argentina, and I sadly am finding out that I can’t drive there to get more. Nevermind the fact that I may be 189 hrs of driving – an estimation I made, but honestly I’m so thrown off by google right now that I’m unquestionably questioning anything that i thought i knew.
I can’t even be certain that I purchased this lovely Trapiche Syrah at the LCBO for under $9 because that seems as crazy as a Spanish speaking border guard telling me i can’t get to Argentina from here [or an ‘merican speaking border guard for that matter].
Seven of us ranked the wines and then cast our votes to find the winner and the results were interesting.
Best overall score – Trapiche Reserve Malbec 2007 LCBO 614651 | $ 11.95
Most first-place votes – La Vieille Ferme (4 out of 7 first place votes) LCBO 298505 | $ 11.95
My personal favorite (and I was alone on this one) – Monte Antico, Toscana Vintages 069377 | $ 14.95 At least Wine Spectator supported me by scoring it a 90 even if nobody else loved it.
Other notes of interest – The top two wines scored well ahead of the other four. Also, four of the six wines recieved a first place vote!
