About

90

"Medium ruby. Enticing aromas of dark berries, bitter chocolate, violet and black olive. Juicy, firm and gripping; not a fleshy wine but boasts excellent calcaire energy (the fruit comes from Paraje Altamira and Gualtallary). Already expressive but this wine really needs another year or so to open fully. Finishes with a firm tannic spine and saline and herbal nuances. A very nicely made newer style of Argentina Malbec, from fruit picked for freshness. (aged for 18 months in large used French oak foudres)"

Product Description:

"Spice, white and pink pepper, violets, graphite and pencil shavings with red fruit, wild berries, and underbrush characterize this Malbec Reserve 2017. Complex, long, and multilayered, it is a wine difficult to define as it keeps changing and evolving in the glass. It comes from high altitude vineyards in the Uco Valley, and limestone derivate soils that show fine grain textured tannins that linger in the mouth, while the last sensation of the wine remains for a long time in the palate." - Winery
