For Bordeaux lovers, this wine from one of Argentina's undisputed leaders establishes a new benchmark. The aromas are herbal, earthy and subdued, with forest floor, plum, cassis and a hint of buttery oak. The palate is all about ripe cassis and blackberry, with a welcome note of rustic woodiness. And the finish is perfectly creamy and satisfying. A triumph of a wine in just its second vintage. Cellar Selection. —M.S.
