Earth, saddle leather and roasted berry aromas lead the meaty nose to a round, mildly tanninc palate that's holding full plum and berry flavors. For Uruguay, this is a nice wine that hits on the proper cylindars. But in the long run the oak is a bit weighty and the balance seems tenuous. Good by local standards.
