Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2006!
"Offers lovely notes of freshly crushed blueberry and boysenberry fruit, along with integrated mocha, mineral and floral notes. Creamy mouthfeel and a long, fruit-stained finish."
The Malbec grapes from mature vines are sourced in equal parts from the Agrelo and La Consulta regions. The wine is fermented and aged in French oak barriques, with aging lasting 16 months. It is then matured in bottle for a further 6 months. Deep red in color with intense violet shades, the nose reveals a combination of red fruits and toasty notes contributed by the French oak. On the palate it is a complex and structured wine with a long finish.
