Coffee toffee, mocha with raspberries. Smooth supple tannins, high acid is balanced by a touch of RS. Full bodied. Wish I had some lamb right now.

Nice malbec/cab/merlot blend- big and rich with as much depth as you'd expect from a quality napa cab/blend. Black plum, leather, blackberry and currant. Ripe mouth coating palate, cocoa and a bit of roasted red pepper. Finishes a little hot but the chocolatey tannins carry on.

Nice berry/prune aroma. Fruit is tempered by the tannic finish. Doesn't linger on the palette.

This blend was a perfect pair with a chimichurri steak and grilled veggies. Deep flavorful with a hint of rich fruits.

Fantastic red from Argentina. Going to Costco tomorrow to pick up a case of two.

LOVE. Really heavy wine, and not sweet at all. Perfect first bottle of wine to start the night. Would def buy again.
