Finca Flichman Paisaje de Tupungato Cabernet Malbec Merlot, Mendoza 2008 $48

A big, powerful, quite tannic red blend from one of Argentina’s top producers. There are minty, floral and squashed raspberry aromas giving it a lifted bouquet. A hint of walnut, too. The palate is firm and somewhat astringent without food. It needs protein. The finish is very long. Now to 2026. 14.5 per cent alcohol. 90/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: rare grilled steak
