Aromas of plum, black cherry, and tobacco leaf roll up from the glass. Plum, unsweetened chocolate, and tobacco lead on the attack, followed by black cherry on the mid-palate. Tannins are fine-grained with almost no bite. This is rich, full, and round, filled with black and red fruit. Drink with tira de asado. Highly Recommended. 90 points. DBH
