    Winemaker's Notes:

    J.Alberto is a field blend of 95% Malbec and 5% Merlot. High-toned nose of violet and vanilla, with ripe blackberry and boysenberry fruit. This wine stays bright and open-knit though the finish, with spice and graphite notes. It's perfect for red meat courses cooked any style.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Noemía first started making this wine in 2001 from a vineyard planted in 1955. This vintage is a complete departure from earlier bottlings: Rio Negro was cold and windy in 2010, especially in autumn at harvest, so rather than focusing on the richness of malbec's sweet fruit, this wine emphasizes a linear structure, its flavors arching like an arrow over the palate. Tense with acidity, this is refreshing malbec, precisely ripened to juicy Morello cherry flavors and floral notes of violets. Cellar it for at least five years.

    This is ripe and rich, but vibrant, with invigorating acidity that pulls the violet, crushed plum, boysenberry and blackberry notes along, while a graphite edge adds length and definition on the finish. Malbec and Merlot.

    Wine Spectator

    Complex and also ripe and blatantly pleasing. Balsamic aromas blend with cassis, blackberry and citrus peel secents to form an exotic bouquet. It's solid and firm in the mouth, with lemony oak framing pure berry fruit. Tight, pure and delivers the total package for Patagonian Malbec.
