Opaque color. Aromas and flavors of plums, cherry, and flowers with a lively, dryish full body and an appealing, long finish with well-integrated tannins and moderate oak. A superb full-bodied red with plenty of terrior, dark fruit flavors, kirsch notes, and well integrated tannins; this could easily pass for a top end red Bordeaux.

While Malbec from Argentina has taken the American market by storm, there are other reds produced in that country. Planted in only slightly less quantity than Malbec is a red variety called Bonarda. However, we usually use the term 'Other Argentine Red' to refer to wines made with blends of red wine grapes, mostly Bordeaux varietals. These wines are usually modeled stylistically after drier Old World claret style wines versus the juicy, fruity style of Argentine malbec that has become so popular.

Other red wines made in Argentina include Syrah, Pinot Noir, Tempranillo, Barbera and Cabernet Franc. As with most wine-producing regions, growers have learned which climates are most beneficial for particular varieties. Thus Pinot Noir is a specialty of the cool climate Patagonia region in the south, while Syrah produces notable results in the hotter San Juan region near the western border with Chile.
