Winemaker's Notes

Violet-red and very intense, with black and red fruit aromas, hints of tobacco and chocolate from the contact with the oak. In the mouth, it is very complex with a combination of blackberry liquer, smoke, and sweet earth. Shows great structure combining heady fruit flavors with strong tannin structure and a long, persistent finish. Definitely a special occasion wine, it will pair well with strong-flavored foods, marinated/grilled meats, and fancier ingredients like truffles, exotic mushrooms, and foie gras.

Critical Acclaim

"Included in February 2011's issue, "Year's Best Argentine Malbecs!""
93 Points

"The 2006 Malbec El Regalo is a barrel selection aged in 100% new French oak. The average age of the vines is 69 years and it too was bottled without fining or filtration. Purple-colored, the expressive perfume reveals notes of pain grille, mineral, white pepper, plum, and black cherry. This is followed by a medium-bodied, elegant wine with outstanding depth and concentration, layers of savory black fruits, silky tannin, and a pure, fruit-filled finish. Give it 3-5 years to fully blossom and drink it from 2012 to 2025."

Large bottle makes it look like a liter when it is really 750 ML. Tastes like basic red table wine and not like a Malbec

This wine is very enjoyable on it's own. No food necessary. Full, rich flavor. It is not my top 10, but definitely would get another bottle for a movie night at home.
