The wine is of an intense purple color. On the nose it has clear mineral notes that are combined with black fruits, cassis and cedar while its French oak aging adds some sweet cocoa hints. On the mouth it’s a wine of great structure and power, both bold and persistent. The alcohol is in perfect harmony with the wine’s acidity, which is evident on the elegance and softness of its finish, thanks to the quality of the 80 year old vines from Vistalba that are the heart of this beloved Malbec, our best so far. The wine is ready to be enjoyed now and has a cellaring potential of fifteen years.
Very forward ripe plummy fruit. Typical Argentina malbec. Unpretentious, full bodied and chewy, ripe and great with steak. Lack of depth and finesse.
