Region: Mendoza, Argentina
Nose: Violets, black currant, blueberry, black cherry
Price & Place: $16, Binny’s

This is a blend of 48% Malbec, 28% Merlot, 12% Syrah, and 12% Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine is aged for 11 months, two-thirds in 100% new French oak and the balance in vat and bottled without fining or filtration. The wine coats the glass while offering up a superb bouquet of violets, black currant, blueberry, and black cherry. This is followed by a layered wine with gobs of ripe fruit, a plush texture, outstanding balance, and several years of aging potential. This wine over-delivers and then some. If you like Meritage or Bordeaux I would strongly encourage you to stock up or you'll be sorry if you don't. Please feel free to let me know what you think of this bottle…
