-- decanted approximately 45 minutes before initial taste --
-- tasted non-blind over a couple hours --
-- 60% Cabernet Franc, 30% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Pinot Noir --
NOSE: "dark"; strong cigar wrapper note; juicy tobacco and leather; a touch musky; moderately expressive.
BODY: medium bodied.
TASTE: medium+ to high acidity; juicy purple berries with hints of red berries; ripe fruit; a touch jammy; very interesting; a little bit of the Cab. Franc pyrazines; tobacco; 14.5% alc.; this is very excellent and interesting. Probably the best Argentinian wine I've ever had (granted, not that many). Excellent QPR @ $27.
