    Winemaker's Notes:

    This exceptional wine is from the single vineyard La Madras, on the slopes of the Andes Mountains in Argentina at an altitude of 2,800 feet, allowing for a temperate Continental climate. Grapes are harvested and selected by hand, gently pressed, and only the first pressed juice used. The wine is then aged in French and American oak for six months.

    The 2006 Malbec is a striking deep brilliant purple color. The nose is ripe and full, reminiscent of dark cherries, plums, and chocolate with undertones of loam and earth. In the mouth, the wine displays a profound core of ripe, blackberry jam fruit, lengthening into a sophisticated weighty finish coupled with an elegant silkiness. This is a rich, extracted Malbec, atypical of most Malbecs from Argentina.

    Critical Acclaim:

    There is a select group of under-$20 Malbecs from Argentina that really do the country and the variety proud. Santos is one of them; the 2006 is easy and ripe on the nose, with lovely cola, berry and herb aromas. The palate has a natural feel and bright black-fruit flavors. Not overly complex but a winner for the next year or two.

    I Like to Drink Malbec as it is usually very light and smooth. This bottle was a little too heavy with a little too much aftertaste. It drank like an ordinary Cabernet Sauvignon. Not a bad wine, but nothing special about it. Look elsewhere for a Malbec.
