Viña Antigua Malbec Bonarda 2008 Argentina

The brand manager for this wine from Argentina raved about how great a value it is. OK, I'll bite, I generally like what the country is doing with wines anyway, but this one just floored me.

50% Malbec blended with 50% Bonarda, attractive aromatics of violets, plum and chocolate, against a tasty palate of cola, glycerine, with fresh fruit showing blueberries and strawberry followed by a slightly bitter finish and very mild tannins.
