The Marshall pays tribute to the founder. These grapes are selected from the oldest vineyard rows on the Lunlunta vineyard in the Lujan de Cuyo. The Intensity of low yielding old vines produces some of the best Malbecs in the world. Its deep ruby red color and brooding flavors of blackberry and wild cherry yield a complex, yet elegant wine. Further dimension comes from aging in French Barrels for 18 months.
Very deep and intense color with blue notes, black fruits, tobacco, graphite, white pepper very well integrated with the oak, showing a good balance with the acidity, mineral, huge ripe and intense tannins.
"The 2007 The Marshall "M" is 100% Malbec agedfor 18 months in 40% new French oak. Opaque purple-colored, it offers up a nose of toasty new oak, cinnamon, allspice, violets, black cherry, and blackberry. On the palate it is rich, savory, and plush bordering on opulent. With excellent depth and grip, this substantial effort will evolve for another 2-3 years and offer prime drinking from 2011 to 2029."
The Wine Advocate
"Very juicy, with a lush beam of raspberry and blackberry fruit laced with fruitcake, melted licorice and sweet spice notes. The fruit lingers on the finish."
