" According to Stephen Tanzer: "($9; a 50/50 blend) Dark red. Musky, slightly reduced aromas of crushed berries, chocolate, smoke and meat. Supple on entry ... offers fairly complex flavors of berries, espresso, meat, rust and tobacco. The smoky quality carries through onto the finish, which features fairly sweet tannins." (July/Aug 04) According to the Wine Spectator: "Beefy red, with plum, coffee and mineral notes too. Rustic finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made." (05/04) From Bodega La Rural, founded by the Rutini family in 1885! The Rutini were the first to plant vineyards in the high-altitude region of Tupungato at almost 4,000 feet above sea level. The cool night temperatures are the key to making intense wines with concentrated fruit flavors and aromas."
