    Winemaker's Notes:

    This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible color—could use it in an inkwell! Lavender, spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa and wood smoke. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both good depth and very lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long fruit-filled finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouth watering too. This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well (and not talk back when you don't give it the car keys!). Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2009 Malbec spent 16 months in 60% new French oak. It displays a fragrant perfume of lavender, wood smoke, spice box, black cherry, and blackberry leading to a smooth-textured, succulent, easygoing Malbec with a bit of hidden structure and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Although it is likely to evolve for 1-2 years, it can be approached now and over the next 10 years.
