90 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - March/April 2013

(60% malbec and 40% bonarda):  Bright saturated ruby.  Dark berries, plum, mocha and chocolate on the very ripe nose and palate.  Sweet, lush and seamless, but with a hint of minerality and solid acidity enabling the wine to maintain balance and freshness.  A mouthfilling and very successful blend, finishing broad and long, firmly tannic but not at all dry.

Nice drinking wine.......

Medium-dark red, very nice fruity aroma, gobs of fruit & herbs and gentle acidity make a nice bargain, good finish, a real surprise, 90 points. I still prefer their Malbec-Syrah blend, called the "Natural".
Another Good one to have at a wine tasting

About Argentina

Until the early 1990s, Argentina's wine industry was focused inward, as the local market's thirst was sufficient to absorb the huge quantities of everyday drinking wine produced there. But with per-capita consumption in the domestic market in sharp decline since the mid-1970s, Argentina's wine producers realized that they had to look to export markets to remain in business, and winemaking in Argentina began its transformation.
