Argentinean Bonarda is actually not Bonarda, but Charbono (aka Corbeau), a grape that originated in Southeastern France. This particular one is bright and food-friendly.
Eucalyptus accent on the nose. The nose is also quite earthy. The color of this wine is notable and gets your attention. It's a very deep, dark almost violet/black. On the palate there are dark, overripe fruits. Mainly black cherry but with a touch of cassis. The tannins don't show up until the finish but when they do they grab and pull you in a different direction. This wine has a ton of grip on the finish but it's not too overwhelming to me. The finish has decent length to it but is not what I'd consider a long finish. Overall, this wine has a great QPR.
