I found this to be an unusually fragrant and delicious Argentinian wine. It felt rich in the mouth, finished very nicely, and was just the thing to polish off an evening before bed.
Big and bold. I liked the lingering flavors and how it settles on my palate. Intimidating at first, and not a fast-drinking wine. Great with red meats.
I keep coming back to this wine, 5 times already! For a sub $15 bottle, you can hardly go wrong! This blends my three favorite wines together seamlessly combining the best of them into these bottles.
A tremendous $15 bottle of red Bordeaux...oh wait, wrong country...no, wrong continent! But seriously this is better than most $20-$25 French bottles, not quite the same flavor profile as any one region in Bordeaux, but close enough to satisfy "the itch" for an Haut Medoc, Fronsac or St. Emilion. Medium body, great basic flavor, enough complexity to be interesting and nicely rounded edges. Finish is fairly long, but not very complex, nice smooth slightly astringent tannins, but fairly simple nose. I would think this wine is about at it's peak, but haven't tasted younger/older vintages, so that's only supposition.
This is an awesome blend, in particular given its price; in fact, it is hard to imagine competitors in this price range. Intense taste with a very long finish.
Good wine. Solid B. Good oak, not too fruity.
