@demilove (Douglass Trapasso): @KeeperColl - How would you describe #Bonarda to either a wine newbie or someone familiar with other Argentinian wines? - #SommChat

@PeterNeptuneMS (Peter Neptune): .@CharlesComm Firstly I think that winemakers focused on pure drinkability as Malbec grew more popular. Now quality is the key #SommChat
