#42 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2013
This luminous carmine Malbec opens with a profuse bouquet of black fruits and subtle spices. After some time in the glass, lush black cherry, blackberry leaf scents lead to floral aromas and meet cinnamon or nutty flavors in a sophisticated balance. Ample and velvety, its vertical mouth-feel is supported by a backbone of well-integrated natural acidity. Its chalky yet plush tannins display the signature of Uco Valley’s limestone terraces, and grant it a remarkable persistence. This Malbec stands out for its lavish volume and recognizable expression.
