What some might generously call “terroir” will probably come across as funky and barnyardy to most. It just doesn't smell that great. Flavors of berry syrup, currant and rhubarb are present on the palate and the finish. This is clearly not the best that Argentina has to offer. It's 75% Malbec and 25% Syrah.
