Love letter got misdelivered but wound up launching a whirlwind affair anyway. Very nice new world essbie that shows how far Argentina has come with this grape; you’re on notice, Chile! Nose is what you’d expect from a New Zealand offering, with notes of slate and grass and cat pee. On the tongue, though, it’s more in line with an old world Bordeaux, less slate but with more light citrus, lemon and even some vanilla. Highly recommended. (Given that this producer’s Malbex “X” just won 4.5 stars, too, this label is one to watch.)
