Rich, earthy aromas of black cherry, cassis, and crumpled leaves. On the palate the wine shows impressive texture, with soft berry flavors and slight bottle age character. Very complex and old world, finishes long. - See more at: http://www.elixirwinegroup.com/argentina-wines/carmelo-patti-gran-assemblage#sthash.uMeWPNk9.dpuf

Wine EnthusiastRarely does one come across a new-release Argentinean red with this much age (it was bottled in 2008). Aromas of turned earth, sautéed mushroom, tomato and herbs are like a fine spaghetti sauce. In the mouth, this is firm and tannic, with lasting balance. Flavors of coffee, cinnamon, dry raspberry and spiced plum finish with persistence. Drink now through 2019.

Wine AdvocateThe 2004 Gran Assemblage, a blend of 47% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Malbec, 20% Merlot and 8% Cabernet Franc from Perdriel, has a slightly reduced nose and needs a little bit of air but feels very classical and slowly displays notes of antique shop, waxed furniture, cured meat, smoke, tea and incense. The palate shows a solid wine with fully resolved tannins, a silky texture and good acidity. A wine for food, elegant and easy to drink. Bravo! Drink now-2018.
