Never had this grape before. It definitely has plum on the nose. Very fruit forward at first then a little more tannic and oaky after a short decant (because I couldn’t wait) but still very fruity! Very smooth going down. Can’t wait to pair with dinner.

Dark, glass-clinging red purple with magenta highlights. Brambly red fruit on the abundant, slightly hot nose. Medium full palate of brambly red plum. Medium plus tannins and juicy, medium plus acidity. Once Argentina’s most widely planted grape, this Bonarda makes for a good, dark alternative to Malbec for fans of Mendoza. Just enough fruit and dark earthiness to make a wonderfully food-friendly red for the dinner table or backyard grill. Drink now through 2023.
