30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Bonarda.
Dark ruby red color with a black core. Dark red fruit aromas with hints of tobacco, chocolate, vanilla, cassis and clove. The mouth-feel is smooth, fruity and has very good acidity. The long finish is balanced with sweet tannins.
"Ripe and juicy, with mixed berry, briar and licorice notes backed by a modestly toasty finish. Very user-friendly. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Bonarda and Merlot. Drink now."
"Malbec and Bonarda are the lead grapes in this four-variety blend that shows improvement from the 2004, which was tough. Loads of ripe, dark fruit lead the way, with chewy, dense berry flavors coming next. It’s bolstered by warm, oaky hints that settle on mocha and spice, so it fits the familiar style of what is good Mendoza wine. "
