The 2017 Alma Negra M Blend has a dark light capturing color which plays true to its name. The aromatics are intriguing offering up sweet notes to the dark red and dark fruit tones of plum and currants that are nuanced with a touch of graphite and mocha. Medium fuller to fuller bodied, this has a captivating textural smoothness to the dark currant flavors, supple and round, with just the right amount of tannic tension for focusing grip on the long lingering finish. This is showing well as we speak and should drink nicely over the next couple of years.

A wine with dense, dark, and intriguing aromas of dark
berries and coffee with a wonderful earthy aroma. It flows
smoothly with rounded tannins which last for a long time
with echoes of cooked ripe blackcurrants.
Great under $20 wine. I was actually in Argentina 2020 before the pandemic for the Vendemia festival and happened upon a cool little restaurant called Cabrera Charif. One of the owners used to work for Terrazas de Los Andes winery and opened this restaurant. This was on tap for tastings and I was blown away by how good it was for under $20. It’s a Catena wine, and I believe the blend is mostly Bonarda. I have a few cases that I hold onto, but it’s such a good anytime drinking Argentine wine but would most likely age well too. Grab yourself a case. You’re not going to feel bad about drinking it all the time due to the price 😉
