La Violeta is a concentrated color, with intense, bright tones of ruby and purple. On the nose, earthy aromas, black fruits, violets, and mint. On the palate, there coffee, dark chocolate, blackberry and licorice - a complex wine.
"The 2008 La Violeta is the sophomore release of their flagship pure Malbec raised in the same way as La Violette in Pomerol and is bridled with 15.5% alcohol. It has a heady, opulent bouquet that, dare I say, reminds me of its Pomerol counterpart in its youth. It offers a smorgasbord of ripe red cherries, creme de cassis, vanilla and blueberry jam all wrapped up in creamy new oak. The palate is full-bodied with plush velvety tannins and low acidity. Everything here is beautifully intermarried with new oak melted into the texture. It is decadent and sumptuous and will appeal to hedonists and classicists alike. Drink now-2016+.
