    Winemaker's Notes:

    This Malbec shows a beautiful ruby red color with violet hues. On the nose, flowery and mineral notes are evident, with spicy touches that make the wine more complex and are finely blended with the elegance of the French oak.

    On the mouth it's a wine of great structure and power, with tannins that are both soft and present. It has an outstanding balance and a very long finish, where red fruits and flower notes are evident. The wine is ready to be enjoyed now and has the potential to be cellared for at least ten years.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Dark and juicy, delivering anise, plum skin and dark crushed currant fruit that's carried by nicely integrated grip. Hints of tar and charcoal check in on the finish. Drink now through 2011.

    The 2008 Malbec Ultra is medium purple in color with an expressive bouquet of wood smoke, Asian spices, incense, lavender, and black cherry. On the palate it has excellent grip, some aging potential, and plenty of spicy fruit. It will be at its best from 2012 to 2020.
