Winemaker's Notes:

Striking deep brilliant purple color. The nose is ripe and full, reminiscent of dark cherries, plums, and chocolate with undertones of loam and earth. In the mouth, the wine displays a profound core of ripe, blackberry jam fruit, lengthening into a sophisticated weighty finish coupled with an elegant silkiness.
My Notes:

About Ricardo Santos:

CUCHILLAS DE LUNLUNTA Sociedad Anónima is a family business owned by the Santos family, who have been related to wine making for more than forty years.

In 1995 they started producing wines exclusively with grapes from Las Madras, the winery located in the first region, in Russell, Maipú. Las Madras has an area of 12 hectares exclusively planted to Malbec, the only grape used to produce "El Malbec de Ricardo Santos."

Since making a high-quality, hand-crafted wine is a very complex and delicate task, Cuchillas de Lunlunta devotes all their efforts to the produc-tion of only one wine: "El Malbec de Ricardo Santos."
