Winemaker's Notes:

Blend: 91% Malbec and 9% Cabernet Sauvignon

This Malbec is ruby red, brilliant and very intense. Its aromas are full of red fruit (strawberry, raspberry, red currant) with a hint of black fruit (blackberry) and spices. The wine is full, round, fleshy, very well balanced and has a good and fresh finish.

My Notes:

About Nandu:

Ñandú was founded by the Portet family, one of Napa Valley's pioneering winemaking families. Bernard Portet founded Clos du Val in Napa Valley and Domaine Nizas in France. The Portets named this new wine Ñandú after the large, flightless bird native to Mendoza. Just as the Ñandú is indigenous to this region, the increasingly-popular Malbec has become Mendoza's flagship grape variety.
