This wine is made by blending Malbec from the three best growing areas in Mendoza. In these areas, the grapes develop sweet tannins, intense fruit and good acidity/sugar balance, combining the characteristics of each area. Red purple color. Intense black fruits and red plum aromas. Smooth and concentrated tannins in the mouth.
"Intense inky hue with a purple rim. Heady aromas of mint, raspberry and plum. The plum theme continues in the flavor with the addition of a fudge-like sweetness. A ripe, drinkable wine with a balancing dash of black pepper in the close."
This is my favorite wine
This is a great Malbec. Let breathe for a few minutes
I bought Gascon because a local restaurant serves it and I liked it then. Nothing has changed. I still really love it for its smoothness. It doesn't have exceptional complexity, but it's a great wine nonetheless.
Really good wine for the price. Enjoyed it as much as the bottle that was three times as expensive. Lighter body for a Malbec, but very flavorful and had nice fruity AND smokey flavors.
The smell turned me off as I am olfactory-dominant. It was a stinky cheese odour. Not a favorite of mine; won't re-purchase.
