This is as fine an example of this varietal as I've had. Argentina's famed Altos de Mendoza growing region lends its magnificent terroir to this grape, making the wine a smooth drinking red with plenty of tannin & moderate acidity. The 2003 is probably my favorite vintage if you can get it (I haven't had the 2001, though if it's available I would recommend that over the 2003 or later). This wine will cellar well for a decade or more, though it's enjoyable after 5 years with decanting. Of course, as it ages the wine will produce sediment as the tannin is oxidized, so decanting is always desirable regardless. The rich notes of plum, cassis, current, & berry reveal themselves little by little as the wine is enjoyed casually over time.
