    (From 2004 Vintage) "The single-vineyard 2004 Malbec 'Nicasia Vineyard' is located in the Altamira district of Mendoza. It was aged for 18 months in new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it exhibits a complex perfume of pain grille, scorched earth, mineral, licorice, blueberry, and black cherry.
