    Winemaker's Notes:

    Beautiful deep purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, full bodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish. This wine really unfolds with some air so try not to slurp it down in a rush, and it shows why the Argentine people are in love with Malbec. Some Bonarda was blended in for greater complexity and to achieve better balance. Pairs well with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Yummy and super rich with bright acidity. Full and rich, with toasted oak, chocolate and coffee. This is very long and continues to develop.

    Blended with 10% Bonarda; spice box, incense, lavender, black cherry; rich, plush palate.

    The Wine Advocate

    An international style of red, this gracefully combines ripe red fruit and the toasty flavors of oak. Impressively balanced, this has a kind of tannic energy that extends the fruit flavor and keeps it fresh through a juicy, lightly spiced finish.

    This wine is a beautiful deep garnet color, great pouring into the glass. A bold wine, holds up to steak and spicy foods well. Very easy to drink and overall a nice wine. Would consider ordering this one again.
