Intense deep violet color; clean aromas of black, acid, forest berries and pencil lead, with graphite, black cherry, mocha and spices notes. Up to now, it is probably the "best" and one of the most structured versions of Dona Paula's icon Malbec, keeping intact its elegance, finesse and multilayered expression.
"Dona Paula's 2007 Seleccion de Bodega Malbec is a glass-staining opaque purple. It was fermented with native yeasts and aged in new French oak for 24 months. The nose reveals an aromatic array of pain grille, pencil lead, spice box, incense, black cherry, and black raspberry. Dense, layered, and full-bodied, it has enough structure to evolve for 4-6 years, and a lengthy, pure finish. It will offer prime drinking from 2014 to 2022."
The Wine Advocate
"Pure on the nose, with pop. Aromas of black cherry are tight and smoky, with minerality. Flavors of cola and berry fruits are on the money, and the feel is firm, deep and layered; drink through 2014."
