Holy mother of everything good.

Let's talk about the nose: lychee, pine, baked lemon, acacia and hibiscus. Weird, right?

The palate is more of the same! I tasted this blind and was thoroughly confused by it. Ended up calling an Argentinian gewurztraminer for the lychee and basically for the craziness of it all it could only come from a South American country.

Despite its strangeness this is a DELICIOUS wine. Sweet fruit and tons of other stuff for anyone else. Worth. It.

Sweet on the nose. I catch dill also. Dry palate. I think would go better with food than by itself.

Venturing to South America to try my hand at a Torrontes. There is a beautiful nose on this bottle. The fruit is bold and tickling the senses with peach, grapefruit, passion fruit and tangerines. On the palate the peach comes true along with the tangerines. There is a good minerality with a descent acidity but not over bearing.

Drank after a couple of beers and a cocktail so adjust standards appropriately. Nearly devoid of flavor, not in a subtle way but in a manner the deceives a poor quality product. Slight charred oak on the nose is followed by nearly none on the palate. Moderately dry. An acquaintance brought it, stopping me from pouring this out as hardly worth the calories. Not overtly offensive, but disappointing.

For the price, excellent wine. Dry and full bodied.

I'm not a big Malbec fan and was not a big fan or this wine. It was full bodied for Malbec and may be better with more robust foods that could stand up to it.

Got better after breathing, but was pretty bold still

Great Red Blend. Smooth and easy drinking. Finishes on the dry side.
