    Winemaker's Notes:

    This ruby-red wine expresses a nose of plum, coffee and chocolate. It is a lush, sexy wine that fills your mouth with fruit and fine tannins. It has the length to live in your cellar but it is ready to go with a quick decant.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The 2005 Yacochuya (100% Malbec) spent 18 months in new French oak. It is a saturated opaque purple color with a brooding bouquet of mineral, wood smoke, lavender, incense, black cherry, and plum. Voluptuous and powerful on the palate, the wine is dense, rich, succulent, and impeccably balanced. It demands another 6-8 years of cellaring and will offer prime drinking through 2025, if not longer. I tasted a component tank sample of the 2007 and it, too, was spectacular.

    The Wine Advocate

    Saturated ruby-red. Brooding, superripe aromas of blackberry, licorice, spicecake, truffle and toffee, with a strong element of sweet oak showing. Like liquid velvet on the palate, with superconcentrated, somewhat porty flavors of dark berries and dark chocolate liqueur. This very thick, broad, exotic wine saturates the entire palate and finishes lush and impressively long. Made from old malbec vines planted more than 6,500 feet above sea level. No-holds-barred wine, for fans of the type.
