Winemaker's Notes:

"If you're already familiar with Argentine Bonarda, this wine will make you feel as though you've landed on another planet. It comes from 30-year-old vines planted in two areas within Mendoza... The combination results in a massive red with roasted black fruit aroma that takes you to the Rhone, its firm, tenxe tannins and vibrant acidity providing a solid structure that suggest a brilliant future. A hedonistic pleasure, and a true steal for the price."
-Wines & Spirits

Round and fleshy, with tasty dark plum, blackberry and chocolate flavors. Fresh finish makes it easy to drink. Drink now. -Wine Spectator
