    Winemaker's Notes:

    The color and flavors in this wine remind you of fresh, sweet purple plums – velvety layers of flavor are full and lasting-typical of an Argentine Malbec.

    Any red meat, especially cooked outdoors, is a perfect partner.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2010 Premium Malbec undergoes 10% bleeding of vats, with malo in tank and then aged in barrel for between eight and nine months in second and third fill oak. It has a light bouquet of leafy black fruit that demands coaxing from the glass. It is very tight at the moment, reluctantly offering hints of forest floor and cedar with time. The palate is medium-bodied with grainy, succulent tannins. It has crisp acidity and an appealing fleshy texture, although the finish is rather conservative and does not really -let go.-

    The Wine Advocate

    Medium red-ruby. Aromatic nose offers blackberry, violet, spicy oak and a suggestion of stony minerality. Supple and fine-grained, with bright acidity framing the currant and blackberry fruit and accentuating the peppery herb and spice notes. Finishes a bit green but the tannins are even and sweet. This still needs a year or two to unwind.
