Winemaker's Notes

Purple tinted with assertive red tones, Eolo unfolds layers of engaging aromas including ripe cherry, smoky coconut and hints of blueberry jam. Full bodied in structure, this wine has lively fruit flavors and sweet round tannins that allow for a long, smooth and lingering finish.

Enjoy with grilled meats including beef and game. Also excellent with spicy dishes, and aged cheeses.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2011 Eolo Malbec, pure Malbec from Lujan de Cuyo, has notes of ripe black fruit and a medium to full body with great power but keeps the elegance and balance. This is a Malbec that expresses the Lujan character together with a whiff of varnish that lifts the nose up. Through the management of irrigation, they have succeeded in lowering the alcohol level to 14.8% without compromising ripeness, so the wine feels better balanced. It is still a little bit tannic and would benefit from some time in bottle. This is a great wine reflecting a great vineyard. Drink 2015-2022."
