Winemaker's Notes

(From «nv» Vintage) This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible color — you could use it in an inkwell! Loads of spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouth watering too. This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well (and not talk back when you don’t give it the car keys!). Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.

    Thick, heavy bottle. Quite dark purple color. Very fruity aroma with hints of black pepper and vanilla. Strong fruit flavor with light tannins and lasting pleasant after-taste. Less delicious about a week after bottle was opened (i.e. drink quickly).
