Initial aromas of tire rubber, smoke, black fruits and leather are good and rich, but in a common, understandable way. Smooth and chunky on the palate, with warmth and flavors of blackberry, fig paste and chocolate. Finishes roasted and dark. A thorough Argentine Cabernet with no glaring weaknesses.
