    Winemaker's Notes:

    2008 provided the idyllic vintage conditions for wines of finesse and longevity. This vintage will likely be rated as one of the best of the decade in Agrelo for Malbec. The days were consistently warm but never peaking with heat, the nights notably cooler than previous years. As a result the phenolic, sugar and flavor ripeness evolved in perfect unison to the delight of our viticulturist. The dry summer allowed no rain to hinder the perfectly healthy grape conditions. Picking was by hand, parcel by parcel, in the early morning, about a week earlier than usual.

    2008 Decero Malbec shows heightened aromatics of violets, an intensity of red fruit and pristine acid and structural tannin balance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Purple/black; already complex nose, densely packed, plush, with 2-3 years aging potential.

    The Wine Advocate

    Remolinos is a new vineyard at 3,500 feet in Agrelo, where the vines' orientation allows them to catch the morning sun. This malbec is pure in its varietal expression, with full flavors of red cherries and violets. Its youth shows in nervous acidity that makes the tannins feel kinetic. For roast duck.
