 Product Description

Vinous Media Review
Rated 93
Saturated bright ruby. Lively aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille and violet. Richer, deeper and weightier than the Malbec Paraje Altamira, offering smooth flavors of blackberry, blueberry, violet and dark chocolate. Finishes compellingly sweet, with supple tannins and lingering black fruits and chocolate--and without any loss of focus or energy. Great Malbec for the price--or any price!

Wine Enthusiast Review
Rated 92
Despite humid conditions in Mendoza in 2015, this old vins Malbec shows a fine combination of blackberry, smoke and mocha aromas. It's in tip-top shape on the palate, although the acidity is a bit wiry. Oaky flavors of vanilla and mocha work well with its black cherry and blackberry fruit, which is unwavering on the finish. Drink through 2022.

Wine Spectator Review
Rated 90
Very refined, with vibrant red fruit and spice flavors supported by fresh acidity. Lively crushed raspberry notes linger on the rich finish, with dark chocolate accents. Drink now through 2020. 7,000 cases made.

Wine Tasting Notes
This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible color - 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.
