Medium extracted dark red. White pepper, tobacco and red fruit notes in nose. Cherry, raspberry, cigar box, leather and later sage notes in mouth, soft tannins on finish. Pleasant, good with food, cries out for a steak. Fruit faded within 24 hours

Popped and poured. Dates, figs, blackberries and baking spices on the nose. Brambles and baking spices on the palate. Nice finish. Really well done for the money.

Full in the mouth robust berry taste in the beginning and earthy green tannin ( sage and or thyme) finishing. As a good Argentinian wine it certainly pairs well with meat. It paired well with the meaty pizza I had.
