Winemaker's Notes

Deep red color with dense violet tones. The bouquet, attractive and charming, provides an explosion of red fruits like cherries and plumbs. The French oak adds delicious hints of vanilla, coffee, and interesting complexity. On the palate, the wine is rich and well structured with soft tannins. Long and elegant finish.

Great combined with delicate dishes, grilled meats, and chocolate desserts.

Critical Acclaim

"This is a structured and rich red with blueberry and dark chocolate character and hints of walnuts. Full body, with chew tannins and a long finish. Chili and spices. Structured red. An old vine wine. Aged 16 months in French oak. 11,200 bottles made. Needs two or three years to soften. "

"The 2010 Grand Vin is a blend of 85% Malbec, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Merlot from Vistalba, from an old Malbec vineyard planted in 1908, 15 hectares that were the heart and the beginning of the project. The wine is dark-colored, classical and restrained in the nose. In fact, it closes down in the glass and you need to swirl it around to get some aromas that are not fruity, or woody, but more earthy and subtle. The palate is full-bodied and has the acidity, stuffing and ingredients to age nicely. This is a great wine. Drink 2016-2024. "
93 Points

"Bright, saturated medium ruby. Lovely high-pitched perfume of blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate and peppery herbs. At once suave and penetrating, displaying captivating floral lift to the high-pitched dark berry flavors. Wonderfully seamless, bright wine with harmonious framing acidity accentuating its impression of purity. Finishes with noble tannins and lovely rising length. This very rich, sweet wine has the balance to give early pleasure but will gain in complexity with more bottle age. Another superb wine from the terrific 2010 vintage."
