Color is deep, almost black. In the mouth somewhat intense sweet and sour blackberry-cherry fruit with notes of herbs and leaves, and hints of stone and even dirt esp. at the front of the mouth. Fruit lingers in the finish. A big wine, could drink with a thinly-sliced, spicy grilled steak. Tested after significant decanting, might be better out of a fresh bottle.

The purple-colored 2008 Bonarda offers an enticing bouquet of smoke, mineral, and blueberry. Round and ripe on the palate, it has surprising depth and length for its humble price. Drink this succulent wine over the next three years.

Argentina may be famous for its rich, full-bodied Malbecs, but this red is living proof of the kind of versatility the country is capable of. Lighter in body, with low tannin and bright fruit, Bonarda is an easy-drinking wine, comparable to some of the best Spanish Garnachas or New World-style Pinot Noirs. Fresh cherry and red raspberry fruits dominate on the nose and palate, highlighted by floral accents and a smidge of spice. A really terrific wine for the summer, but drink it all year long paired with salmon or chicken dishes.

Known as Charbono in California, the Bonarda grape flourishes in Argentina where it makes reds redolent of dark fruits and smoke, like this one.

Deep purple color; wild berry aromas, ripe palate, good depth and balance.

Soft and toasty, showing damson plum and black cherry fruit that glides along, with an open-knit finish. A very friendly style. Drink now.

A light, fresh style, with plum, violet and vanilla notes backed by a round, easy finish. Drink now.
