Aromas of plum, currant, tobacco and dark chocolate continue through to the palate. Rich! dark cherry presents itself on the tongue with a touch of oak. Good structure and tannins suggest aging another at least 7 years to enjoy.

Served blind, I guessed Loire CF. In my humble opinion, Susana should take this the right way; positive!!! Elegant and bell pepper infused, this might well turn into something really nice in 3-6 years from now. If this single example can he used as an indication of Argentina's future wine wise, then count me in.

It's the night before the first day of school, and we're facing a ton of parent paperwork. Fortunately there's dinner. And this wine.

A nice firm CS that needs a bit more time to evolve. The wine is young and kicking, but here in Rio everybody loved it with a juicy Brazilian steak. Deep garnet color, lovely nose with cherries, coffee, vanilla , spices and cedar wood, a full robust body with firm dry tannins, that need a few more years to mellow . Nice balancing acidly and a long dry finish. My score 87, drink 2016-2023

Cab 90%/Merlot 10% blend from Argentina...took a shot, really liked it. Full-bodied, great with grilled steaks.

Interesting Cabernet. Similar to Chilean Cabernet, but a little bit more funky. It had a lot of dried fruit to it that you'd expect from an older wine.

A classic, firmly built Mendoza Cabernet. The nose conveys varietally expressive scents of currant, plum, mocha and tobacco leaf. In the mouth, it’s savory and intense, displaying excellent depth and restrained sweetness. Finishes with firm but harmonious tannins and excellent length. (ST)
