Daddy LIKE. This is a wonderfully complex wine with ripe fruit flavors of plum and dark cherry interwoven with layers of mocha, spice box, and sweet tobacco. Nice long finish. While full in flavor this wine is not overwhelmingly big in body. Soft tannins--well balanced--excellent.

Smooth and earthy Argentinian goodness. Not sure why the name sounds Italian...

This cab has grown on me with each sip. More French in style (the earthiness) than Californian. I also get some green notes to go with the pleasant bell pepper flavor.

Cicchitti Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon - 2005 I think Cabs from Argentina are one of the best kept secrets in the great world of wine. They have the quintessentially Argentine smoke character, that distinctly earthy flavor- but they are generally more European in style with a subtler fruit-forward character than a Napa Cab. I am a big fan- think they offer great value. (7/10)
