very nice wine. good price as well.
The nose on the 2007 is somewhat tight. Currant, black cherry, and lots of oak-imparted vanilla and cedar notes. Pleasant, grippy tannins, but not a long finish. See my comparison 2006 vs. 2007 Amancaya here: http://winedinewith.us/2009/11/10/wine-review-2006-amancaya-vs-2007-amancaya/

The wines coming from Argentina are some of the best quality at bargain prices! Intense crimson in color, this Cabernet has dried fruit aromas with spice and some oak notes. It is structured and balanced, with dark ripe fruit on the palate and a lingering finish. Ideal for pairing with pasta dishes, roast beef and grilled sausages.
Deep plum colored red with enticing aromas of dried herbs, cedar and blackberries. Surprising balance and complexity at this price point merits a second look for the connoisseur as well as those Cab lovers simply looking for a full-bodied, captivating red.
Intense ruby-red color. Enticing aromas of ripe plum and wild berries. The berry flavors are joined by accents of spice, chocolate, and a hint of leaf tobacco on the palate. The ripe, vibrant tannins give the wine a beautiful structure and amazingly long finish.
