2009 Susana Balbo Syrah/Bonarda Crios de Susana Balbo Mendoza
Producer: Susana Balbo
Style: Red Wine
Grape Type: Red Blend
87 Points | International Wine Cellar , January 2012
(a 50/50 blend): Good medium red-ruby. Spicy aromas of blackberry, licorice, minerals and menthol, plus a distinct smokiness from the syrah. Supple on entry, then a bit medicinal and dry in the middle, with flavors of spices, herbs and bitter chocolate. Despite some slightly edgy acidity, this could use a bit more definition. A tad dry on the finish.
