Winemaker's Notes

Color: Attractive red color with violet reflections that will tend to intensify as years go by.

Aroma: Complex aromas of cherries and mature blackberries.

Taste: Presents a very good structure and it is persistent in the mouth. Sweet tannins, with no drying effect.

Critical Acclaim

"The lineup begins with the purple-colored 2006 Malbec, made from purchased fruit, and which spent 12 months in French oak. The aromatics offer enticing notes of cedar, spice box, blueberry, and black raspberry leading to a smooth-textured, flavorful, well-balanced Malbec with 2-3 years of aging potential. Drink this tasty effort from 2010 to 2018. "
89 Points

"Medium ruby. Primary aromas of crushed blackberry and licorice. At once creamy and shapely, with ripe, integrated acidity framing the concentrated flavors of blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate and licorice. Sweet but very young wine, finishing with building tannins and persistent blackberry and violet flavors. Quite suave."
