I am a real fan of the 2007 Finca Flichman Expresiones Reserve Shiraz/Cabernet Sauvignon (which I rated at 91 pts). Even though this wine (2008 vintage) is not as complex, it still offers a good value. It is medium bodied with FRUITY to integrated aromas of black currant, blackberry, leather and coconut. The tannins are refined to tannic (decant for 30 min) and the finish is medium and smooth and silky. It definitely has the potential to evolve in the cellar (2014/15?) and am keeping an eye on the stocks, so that I can reassess if I should stock up on it. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89 pts. Tasted May/10.
