Winemaker's Notes

Made from 100% Malbec from the Agrelo vineyard harvested in April. The wine is fermented in French oak barrels for two years, with an additional year in bottle prior to release.

This Malbec shows awesome purity, with layers of raspberry, blackberry and fig compote with notes of plum sauce, mocha, graphite and violets. The velvety texture and fresh acidity displays an exotic combination of flavors. This Malbec leaves a long, detailed finish and a remarkably elegant impression.

Critical Acclaim

"From a 30 year-old vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, this is a broad and enveloping malbec. The fresh scents of violets and cherries are shaded with sweeter, warmer tones of coffee and cinnamon. The tannins and acidity lend the wine tension. Cellar it for three or four years."
92 Points

"The 2005 Cadus Malbec, sourced from a single vineyard of the same name, spent 24 months in French oak and 2 years in bottle prior to release. Opaque purple-colored, it has an enticing nose of toasty oak, spice box, violets, black cherry, and plum. Sweetly-fruited, savory, and layered, it has enough fine-grained tannin to evolve for 2-3 years and will drink well through 2017."
