    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 ruby-red. Slightly roasted blackberry, espresso and licorice on the nose, along with a peppery accent. Intensely flavored and nicely dense, showing noteworthy refinement to its dark berry and black cherry flavors. A touch deeper than the cabernet, finishing with serious tannins that spread out to dust the palate. Offers plenty of sex appeal already.

    International Wine Cellar

    A rich and juicy malbec, this is packed with ripe red fruit and violet scents. You could drink it now for its seductive smoothness, or allow it to develop in the bottle for three years or more.

    Wine & Spirits

    Plenty of ripe dark fruits with hints of earthy and funky undertones. Some might call it barnyard, but I like the decadence. Full body, soft tannins and a delicious finish. Drink now.
