The Marshall pays tribute to the founder. These grapes are selected from the oldest vineyard rows on the Lunlunta vineyard in the Lujan de Cuyo. The Intensity of low yielding old vines produces some of the best Malbecs in the world. Its deep ruby red color and brooding flavors of blackberry and wild cherry yield a complex, yet elegant wine. Further dimension comes from aging in French Barrels for 18 months.
Very deep and intense color with blue notes, black fruits, tobacco, graphite, white pepper very well integrated with the oak, showing a good balance with the acidity, mineral, huge ripe and intense tannins.
"Lush, pure, welcoming and sturdy, with dense black fruit aromas leading to a healthy, racy palate that's full of live-wire blackberry and cassis flavors. Seriously stacked Malbec with no timidity and a finish that oozes layered black fruit, chocolate and complexity. Drink this winter or hold until fall-winter of 2011."
"Smoke, mulberry, blueberry, and lavender, nicely integrated oak, lengthy, drink now-8 years."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright, deep ruby. Complex and inviting aromas of blackberry, tobacco, meat and smoky oak. Dense, sweet and serious, with noteworthy intensity and precision to the flavors of blackberry, pepper and spices. Finishes vibrant and long, with silky tannins and excellent lift. An outstanding value."
