    Winemaker's Notes:

    The weather in 2006 was excellent during spring and summer. The windy spring was positive for the quality of the grapes. The hail in December slightly decreased the yields of the Malbec. Deep purple-red color. Fruit driven wine, with appealing red and black cherries flavors, black plums, hint of mint and cedar. On the palate it has a nice tannic texture that is full and round. Notes of vanilla and tobacco coming from French oak. Nice to drink now or to be laid down.

    "The 2006 Amancaya is composed of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon and 50% Malbec aged for 12 months in French oak, 25% new. It offers an attractive bouquet of cedar, tobacco, damp earth, black cherry, red currants, and black currants. Supple, forward, ripe, and tasty, it conceals enough tannin to evolve for 2-3 years and will drink well through 2016."

    Decanter this young baby for about 30 minutes and you will have an excellent well rounded from front to finish smooth blended S.A. wine. I noticed the wine smelled like fresh milk when I aired the baby out. Get it.
