Winemaker's Notes

This wine is bottled without fining or filtering. There is additional risk in this, but we prefer not to stripe the wine of subtle flavors and aromas. The formation of deposits in the bottle will be noticeable after some cellaring time. This is no way affects quality. We strongly recommend decanting this wine at least an hour before drinking.

Critical Acclaim

"Rich, with delicious raspberry and macerated currant fruit enlivened by a strong violet aroma and a piercing mineral streak. The long, dark, juicy finish is very vivid and racy. Drink now through 2009. 8,000 cases made."
91 Points

"The entry-level 2007 Malbec (a blend of four vineyards) delivers a superb bouquet of pain grille, mineral, floral notes, and black cherry. This leads to an impeccably balanced wine with a sleek palate feel, serious depth, succulent flavors, and a lengthy finish. It will evolve for several years but can be enjoyed now. "
