Dark violet in color, with a ruby robe. The nose ispretty intriguing in light of its price point. Most lower tier, value reds out of Argentina can be pretty one-dimensional both aromatically and on the palate. So the initial aromatic impression is a strong indication that this wine has some complexity to it. Here the nose offers up some interesting notes, a light floral lift then a savory earth tone following, with subtle spice and herbal inflections and a touch of licorice that flows into dark red fruits, currant, black cherry and dark raspberry. The nose plays the savory fruit interplay nicely.
The palate is quite engaging, with a burst of darker red fruits mirroring the nose that are nuanced with some savory lighter herbal tones. Medium fuller to fuller bodied, this really spreads out nicely across the mid palate with a little aeration, the tannins having no angular edges to them and the fruit has good ripeness without being to forward or over the top. The end result a wine that is packed with flavor, possessing a smoother textural feel, giving suppleness with just enough grip on the back end to keep everything focused. This screams value and should drink beautifully over the next couple of years quite easily.
