OH MY! What a wine!! If you have invited the wine snobs in your life over for dinner and are convinced the $3/litre plonk you normally drink just won't cut it - THIS ONE is your salvation. Guaranteed to impress even the most intense wine consumers! This wine is an Argentinian blend (Malbec, Cab Sauv, Bonarda, and Tannat), purple with a bit of brickiness. Cherries, spice, cedar, pepper, and cigar box on the nose. Ripe plums, cedar, caramel/chocolate/vanilla on tasting. Mixture of soft and rough tannins with good acid and a very long finish. I honestly don't have enough adjectives to describe this wine adequately other than "fascinating". I have not enjoyed a big red wine nearly so much in ages. I'm planning on stashing a few of these in the cellar to dig out in 3-5 years and see what develops. Worked great with our grilled steaks. If you want a truly memorable wine, definitely grab this one.
