Santa Julia Magna 2010
A blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah from Argentina's Mendoza Valley, this red really does need to breathe, I'd say for a minimum of two hours, lest it's taste be masked by seriouly bitter tannins. Once these have dissipated, however, one is rewarded with a highly pleasing, civilized blend of red berry elements, reminiscent of a good claret. Quite attractively priced at $10.99.
