Don Cristobal, Triana, Mendoza, Argentina, 2011
Platinum - Best in Show: Best Red Blend
50% Malbec, 30% Shiraz, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon
Still full of youthful power, the bouquet is a dense and brooding mix of ripe black fruit, leather, spice, plum, dark cherry, and a hint of smoky oak. So endowed with flavour, you could carve it. Its depth and balance are augmented by braids of firm, though ripe, tannins. Try it!
