While this ranks as one of the best Uruguayan reds we've come across, it's not a slam dunk. First off, there's the price; $60 is a lot to spend for any wine, let alone one from the frontier. But getting past that there's pretty fruit, purity, texture and balance to this prestige-aimed effort. And it finishes with alluring tobacco and earth notes. The blend is Cab Franc with Merlot, Tannat and Cab Sauvignon.
