A good and interesting red from Salta. The blend is 80% Barbera with 20% Merlot, and the final result is positive. Cherry, plum and earth work the nose, followed by cherry, raspberry and cassis flavors. A thorough, different type of wine for those looking to explore what's lurking on the fringes of the wine world.
