Finca Flichman Paisaje de Barrancas 2010
Finca Flichman was established in Argentina's Mendoza Valley in the 1870's by a Jewish merchant from Lodz in Poland and has been producing superior wines since that time. About ten years ago it was purchased by the giant Portuguese combine Sogrape, which invested large sums in modernizing the means of production. This red, a blend of Syrah, Malbec, and Cabernet Sauvignon, is one of their premium bottles. It exhibits good body without being heavy, and prominent red berry flavors, along with an undertone of mint, and nice, soft tannins in the drawn out finish. A very nice buy indeed at $11.99.
