    Winemaker's Notes:

    Expressive flavors of black cherry, raspberry, violets, and cedar, Quimera is complex, layered and rich.

    A blend of 38% old vine Malbec from Medrano and from Luján de Cuyo; 24%, Merlot from Tupungato; 24% old vine Cabernet Sauvignon from Medrano and from Tupungato; and 14% Cabernet Franc from Tupungato.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Quimera is a blend of 40% Malbec, 22% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Cabernet Franc, and 4% Petit Verdot with yields averaging a minuscule 1.3 tons per acre. The wine was aged in 40% new French oak. Pain grille, pencil lead, Asian spices, incense, violets, and assorted black fruits inform the nose of a complex, intense, layered, spicy, succulent wine with impeccable balance and length. Although it can be approached now, it will benefit from another 2-3 years of cellaring.
