"Attractive purple flowers and blueberries intermingle with cassis on the nose. The palate has a fresh and lithe, juicy feel that carries very fresh, even and long into the soft, approachable finish. Drink or hold."

"Bright ruby-red. Ripe, wild aromas of black fruits and game plus a floral nuance. Juicy and energetic on the palate, showing good complexity and violet lift to its dark fruit and mineral flavors. This nicely concentrated wine finishes with firm but smooth tannins and noteworthy length. With its verve and subtle flavor intensity, it's delicious right now. This Malbec was aged in about 25% new oak, with the winery using some 500-liter barrels for the first time in 2017."

"The 2017 Malbec mixes grapes from Alto Agrelo and Altamira, and it fermented with selected yeasts. It's ripe and juicy, with little effect of the oak in the aromatics and flavors, as 40% of the volume was unoaked. It's very floral and a little grapey, showy and aromatic, from a healthy and ripe year that Jimena considers exceptional. It has complexity and great natural acidity, and it's juicy and ripe, soft and with round tannins, very drinkable. 21,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2018."
"Small-production Malbec from over 100-year-old vines with amazing concentration, aromatics, and earthy notes of smoke and espresso.
Deep and bright color that evokes its name. Ethereal rose petal incense and spicy perfume with a bass note of smoky earth and espresso. Juicy and medium-bodied with red currant and black pepper on the palate. Finishes with smooth, lush tannins, ripe acidity and good length." - Winery
