Carmelo Patti 2003 Gran Assemblage Red (Mendoza)

Initially you get nothing but herbs, spice and tomato off this Bordeaux blend. The nose deals bell pepper, red pepper flake and tomato such that it smells more like chimichurri than wine. But with airing it improves to reveal dry strawberry, cherry and herbal spice flavors. More saucy, green and savory than fruity, and probably past its prime; but still it's offering some mature class and style. Michael Schachner
