Bodegas Escorihuela Gascón Don Miguel Gascón Colosal Red Blend 2013, Mendoza Argentina 

My Rating 87 Points.   

Price $18.
Dark ruby in color with a purplish rim.

Great nose of dark fruits and blackberries, black currants, plums, bell pepper, cherries, oak, vanilla, red flowers, licorice, earth, spices, peppercorn, smoke, chocolates and metals.

Medium plus in body and soft, with medium acidity and nice legs.

Dry on the palate with blackberries, black currants, plums, cherries, chocolates, smoke, licorice oak vanilla vegetables, earth, bitter almonds, spices, asparagus and peppercorn.

Medium finish with fine grained tannins and raspberries.

An enjoyable red blend from Argentina. Nicely balanced with a soft mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle with lots of earthy notes. Easy drinking with a nice bite. Not simple, but not very complex either.

Got earthier as it opened up, but became bitter after 2 hours.
Will be better in a couple of years.

I paired it with a cheese plate, crackers and nuts.

A blend of 61% Malbec, 16% Bonarda, 13% Syrah and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon.

13.5% alcohol by volume.
