    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color has a bright violet color with shades of ebony.
    The aroma reminds one of ripe plums, cherries and spice are complemented by a hint of tobacco.
    On the palate the wine has flavors of ripe red berries, balanced acidity and sweet tannins leading to a deliciously long finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Grown at 3,600 feet in Tunuyan, the fresh efffect of the altitude is not enough to counteract the warmth of the vintage, which packs this malbec with black fruit flavors and sweet spice. Still, it sustains firm acidity, shaping the flavors and giving the wine exuberant depth. Open it now with a ribeye.

    Smells ripe and friendly, sort of like a jelly doughnut. The palate is creamy, dense and balanced, with saturated berry and spice flavors. Very smooth and integrated overall, and while it's definitely dark and ripe it's also popping with freshness. A complete wine at every turn.
