Mendoza, ARGENTINA
$22. 99 Bottle
$275.88 Dozen
Cellar: Drink now - 5 Years (2020-2025)
ABV: 14.5%
Closure: Cork

Aged in American oak barrels (10% new) for 8 months. Totally opaque black dark red colour with a bright dark red hue. Scented red currant, blueberry and red liquorice aromas meld into notions of fresh herbs, graphite and white pepper. On the medium bodied palate delicious ripe blueberry, dark cherry, blackcurrant and liquorice fruits sit over a back drop of vanillin cedar, subtle dried herbs and spice. Excellent purity of fruit and flavour intensity finishing fresh with very polished tannins and a long savoury blue fruited aftertaste.
Drink over the next 4-5 years.
Alc. 14.5%

Other Reviews….
A juicy and savory red with dried berry and iron. Some rust. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins and a flavorful finish. Has some backbone and structure. Drink or hold.
