Very few Argentine wines feature quality Tempranillo blended with Malbec, but that's what B Crux does and it's a major reason why I like it so much. The 2006 vintage is deep, complete and smooth, with creamy, fresh berry and mild leather aromas in front of friendly, easygoing raspberry and blackberry flavors. The oak is prominent but doesn't overwhelm. Drinking nicely right now.
