This is a Tannat wine from Argentina.  Inky purple in color, opaque and bright.  The nose has spice, black raspberries, and some oak showing.  A lovely texture.  Black raspberry fruit.  It is sweet, more than just ripe.  Not dessert like but certainly seems like some residual sugar in the wine.  Looking back at a note I wrote on this wine in 2017, it is consistent.  This probably drinks better on its own due to the sweetness but perhaps a chocolate desert would work.  Drink over the next few years.  Those who enjoy a hint of sweetness will like this more than I.
