The 3rd and final wine for the weekend in the World Rugby Series - this one a Malbec from Argentina. Dark Crimson in colour - opaque with signs of age on the rim. Aromas of Tobacco. Quite a juicy palate - medium minus weight. Restrained - classed as new world but made like old world. Fine grained Tannins. Thoroughly enjoyable - loved it. I have a new appreciation of Argentinian Malbec. After 2 hours in the decanter a light tarry aspect with a touch of pastille. Amazing how much better Argie Malbec is compared to its spiritual home in Cahors France. Probably the altitude in the Andes has a lot to do with it. — 2 days ago
I thought this was pretty good. Raspberry, blackberry, and some cherry in the aroma and the palate. Also a little charred wood and graphite. Acidity was strong and out ahead the tannins, and a little more citrusy than I’d expect in a red. Distinctive and pleasant raspberry finish. — 9 days ago
Great cab franc from Uco, if you are into that style. Fruity (no oak whatsoever), but certainly not sweet or syrupy. Fairly acidic, and with a distinct mineral taste, like chalk or graphite. Lighter bodied than a cab sauvignon or a malbec (lighter colors, etc.) But still a powerful wine. — 8 days ago
Color of clear purple. Nose of spicy alcohol, a bit chocolate, fermented cabbage, cherry jam, and medicinal note. Taste is round, silky, and like concentrated Pinot Noir with nice berry and cherry note, peppery, good alcohol content, marginal tannins, and good acidity. Aftertaste is medium long, savory with really no pitfall. Good. — 6 days ago
I had a 2011 and contrary to anothers rater think this is one of the best I had tried. I am a wine lover and have had thousand of them from different countries. This wine has a fruity and oaky taste you will notice its 18 months in barrels for that low price of 400 arg pesos equivalent to 10 dollars — 4 hours ago

Warm raspberries, ripe black cherries, blueberries, black olives, spearmint, sweet tobacco leaf, graphite, and clove. Crazy ripe fruit on the bouquet, juicy mid-palate, finish that’s covered in dark chocolate and yerba maté, and all wrapped up in supple tannins. New world nose with an old world finish.
