A Best Buy
TASTING NOTE: From old-vine bonarda from a 50-year-old vineyard in the Guaymallén zone, about 750 meters above sea level, 30% of the wine was aged in barrels for about eight months before it was bottled. This is a classic bonarda full of flavors and aromas of ripe blackberries along with juicy acidity, soft tannins, and lots of juiciness.
