    Winemaker's Notes:

    Beautiful deep purple color with perfumed aromas of ripe red fruits and roasted coffee beans. It is lush, fullbodied and penetrating on the palate with loads of chewy, currant jam flavors, bright acidity, and a touch of grip on the almost savory finish. This wine really unfolds with some air so try not to slurp it down in a rush, and it shows why the Argentine people are in love with Malbec. Some Bonarda was blended in for greater complexity and to achieve better balance.

    Pairs well with a wide range of foods including beef, sausages, spiced or grilled pork, veal, medium-strong cheeses, and meat-based pasta sauces.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Bright red-ruby. Slightly reduced aromas of blackberry, kirsch and licorice complicated by game and spices. Dense, juicy and bright, with good floral lift and perfume to its dark fruit and sexy chocolatey oak flavors. Comes across as sweeter than the 2011 cabernet. Nicely balanced, long wine with supple tannins and good grip.

    This is a little bitey.
