Red currant, black pepper, green chiles, graphite. Approaches Chinon on it's complexity, but more fruit and New World spice. Lengthy, smooth finish. I honestly have only had a handful of Cab Francs in my life, but this compares very favorably.

Oh wow. This is the real deal. Complex, lifted blue and red fruits on the nose with a subtle vegetal/briney component. More floral with each minute it airs. Doubles down on the palate - powerful wine. Best bottle of Argentine wine I have had in recent memory. Overdelivers.
