Guillermo Banfi's Sur de los Andes and Alma de los Andes wines are excellent across the board. This reserve-level holdover from 2004 offers mint, chocolate and leather aromas in front of ripe cherry and raspberry flavors. Almost crisp and choppy, but on the other hand precise and zesty. Not unlike a very good Dolcetto from Italy.
