Carlos Basso Reservado Cabernet Sauvignon 2009, Mendoza, Argentina - $17.50

This Argentinian Cabernet Sauvignon retails for $17.50/bottle at Royal Blue.

I tasted dark fruit, strong black tea, tobacco, and moderate to strong tannins.

This wine was okay.

Update - June 27, 2011
Aroma - dark fruit, musty, seaweed?
Taste - dark fruit, musty, earthy, wood, strong tannins
Seemed like the wine may have been about to turn, but others just thought it was very musty. I think I'm reducing it to a maybe tonight.
