Altos las Hormigas Bonarda Colonia las Liebres 2008
88 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Medium ruby. Pure aromas of black cherry, licorice and mint. Juicy and bright, with pungent, well-integrated acidity framing the fairly intense black fruit fla vors. Finishes with light tannins and good length. In texture and weight-and lack of oak influence-this reminded me of a cross between dolcetto and barbera. And not a bit rustic for bonarda. (Jan/Feb 2010)
The best argentine Bonarda out there. The Altos guys understand the variety and turn out a nuanced example that brings out all of bonarda's hidden potential for finesse. Concentrated flavors of raspberry, plum, rocky minerality and a sophisticated sense of balance for the price point.
I have been drinking this wine for a few years now and am delighted with every vintage. The 2008 is great. I love the dark purple color and robust juicy flavor. It's got black & red cherries and plums along with some vanilla and a little toast. It is a perfect summer wine for burgers, ribs or grilled steak. And you can't beat the price.
Great for the price. Strong, interesting flavor that is fruity but not sweet. You can definitely taste the alcohol, which is pleasant. Clean finish.
