I'm not used to tasting many Cab's from Argentina but have always thought that if they can grow such amazing Malbec, then Cabernet is something that they can definitely improve on. When visiting my local bottle shop I asked the wine manager (a friend of mine) what little gems he had for a cheap price. He pointed out this bottle and I knew the producer because I really love their Torrontes, so I decided to give it a shot.
On the nose I get aromas of dusty black cherry, cassis, black licorice, oak, tar, pencil led, and dark chocolate. The wine opens up significantly when given the proper amount of oxygen and it's full bouquet is actually very complex. Let this baby breathe!
On the palate big voluptuous black fruits and dusty black cherry dominate with lingering cedar and graphite notes. It's also a bit liquor-like and is somewhat like creme de cassis with it's thick texture and licorice notes.
This bottle of wine is every bit worth it's $10 price tag and if you see it in your local shop I recommend picking it up as and excellent value. Also try the Torrontes because it's amazing! 88 points
