This is a very nicely composed, ripe yet not too jammy cabernet that's approaching prime time. The fruit is very ripe...

Great value Cab from Argentina here. Like a bachelor party night. It smells like cigar smoke with a hint of vanilla perfume and leather unmentionables, and its smooth like the boys one-liners. Get your Wolf Pack together for a preload and pair it with a big ribeye and a dollop of horseradish.

Beautiful medium+ ruby in colour with medium+ intensity on the nose.

Positives: Cedar, turmeric, pencil shavings, leather, sour cherry, blueberry, nutmeg, tobacco leaves & spinach. Medium+ body, tannins, acidity & length.

Negatives: A little too green & not enough fruit or earth notes to make this a pleasurable wine to drink now.

Needs to age another 5 years. If you are to drink now pair it with medium rare steak.

Tasted: 30 Oct 11

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 8.5/10, Total: 17/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3
