At 90% Tempranillo, this is not your average Argentine red. The nose is lean and hot, with spice that grows on you. The palate is piercing, but amid the acid and racy cherry and raspberry fruit are touches of elegant dryness, olive, leaves and old Rioja. Will age for a decade due to blazing acidity.
Starts off with volatile, sharp aromas that suggest vinegar. The palate is stark and sheer, with roasted plum and hickory flavors. Hot, leathery and tight on the finish, with a grabby, chopping run out. 250 cases made.
