Thanks to the generosity of Terra Fossil Wines we have been introduced to, in our opinion, some of the coolest wines around. We are definitely suckers for unique logos and labels and these wines couldn’t have done better in that department. Their wines each sport a different dinosaur. Yes that’s right, DINOSAURS! Their five wine varieties include Malbec (Stegosaurus), Merlot (Velociraptor), Cabernet Sauvignon (T-Rex), Chardonay (Apatosaurus), and Sauvignon Blanc (Pterodactyl).
Terra Fossil Wines got their start when three New York entrepreneurs set out on a backpacking adventure through the beautiful country of Argentina. There they discovered a vineyard, met a family who had lived on the land for over a hundred years, and the rest is history.
The two words that come to mind with these wines are passion and adventure. You can really get a feel for the time, love, and energy that went into all these wines. We love the story of the Terra Fossil Founders and are so happy to report that the quality of wine is just as impressive.
This Malbec really held its own. We can only describe it as a bold, intense wine with robust yet silky tannins. The aroma of this read was really enjoyable. Dark cherry was the most apparent in this one. A really great wine to relax with on its own or paired with a spicy dish.
This Sauvignon Blanc was out of this world. We haven’t done a lot of Sauv. Blanc tastings but this one takes the cake so far. Never have we tried a wine that smells so delicious. The first five minutes with this wine was spent smelling it. We aren’t joking. This one had a beautiful aroma of nectarine. The back label says it has aromas of gooseberry, passionfruit, and nectarine. For us, the nectarine was front and center and we loved it. The nectarine also came across great in the tasting. We can’t say more about this wine. It was great and we definitely want to stock up on this one.
