Argento has found its calling with this wine, by far the best to date from this label. It’s deep and pure, with raisin, blackberry, spice and vanilla on the nose. Super solid and lush, with layered flavors of jammy berry, coffee and chocolate. Holds all its form on the finish; excellent vino for the dollar.
Ripe, fruity and jammy on the nose, with smokiness and earth to go with standard berry aromas. The palate leans towards full and jammy, with sweet berry and mild spice flavors. Chunky and full-bodied, but for the most part it gets things right.
This wine comes across good but generic. It delivers berry aromas with a topping of oak-based vanilla and wet cement. The palate feels basic, while rubbery, oaky flavors of blackberry finish pasty tasting and with little middle ground.
An unusual specimen, especially on the nose, where spicecake, floral and incense aromas are atypical. The palate is kind of sharp and immature, with grapey, blueberry flavors and coconut on the finish. A different breed of Malbec, but not what we’d call a slam-bang success.
Atypical on the nose, as air freshener, berry jelly and exotic but odd aromas take over. The palate seems superficial and wholly unusual, with floral blueberry flavors and then an angular, floral finish. Not terrible but doesn’t seem much like Cabernet.
Talcum powder and distant green melon aromas open it up, while the palate falls flat and a touch bitter, with bland melon and lychee flavors. Seems to be fading as the pulse is weak.
