Bright medium ruby. Brooding aromas of cassis, blackberry, bitter chocolate, cocoa powder and peppery herbs. Suave, fine-grained and energetic, offering slightly gamey flavors of currant, tobacco leaf, mint, leather and minerals. In a surprisingly supple style for a wine with pronounced green elements. Again, this strikes me as more like Bordeaux than Mendoza. Finishes with smooth tannins, a slightly tart quality and excellent length.
