Winemaker's Notes

(From 2012 Vintage) Deep, purple-red hues hint at a classic, Mendoza Malbec. Delicate aromas of fresh black currant, wild blackberry and notes of soft vanilla blend with a subtle toasted-oak finish.

    winemaker's notes: Nose of crushed red berries and black fruit, hints of violet and dried fennel, balanced, mouth feel, with smooth entrance, firm mid palate, and long, vibrant finish. Overall clean and focused profile. critical acclaim: "Opens with tarry, cooked aromas but with airing, oak and ripe, earthy berry notes squeak out. The palate is chewy and solid, with extract and tannic grab as well as smoky, sultry flavors of roasted blackfruits and bouillon. Meaty and satisfying. Best Buy" 88 Points Wine Enthusiast

    March 2011: Very tannic. Not much to smell either. I'm going to hope that the next bottle is something different. Drinking by itself for now.
