Tobacco, leather, dirt. Complex.
Admittedly, I am a wine neophyte, but this is one of my favourite wines for around $15. I chose it because my partner likes Petit Syrah and I am a Malbec fan and Estampa managed to make a wonderful blend, that is full flavoured and smooth on the tannins, spicy and buttery - sorry that is my best impression of a wine critic. It is great to drink right now, but I have snagged the last two bottles from my favourite local wine store and will try em after another year or so...if I can wait that long!
