Winemaker's Notes:

The classic Malbec aromas of ripe plum and violets are evident in the nose, with hints of vanilla. The beauty of the Malbec in Argentina is its ability to combine a rich, weighty mouth feel with a soft silkiness normally associated with lighter wines. Sensual Malbec takes the promise of the nose through to the palate, with pleasing fruit that mimics the aroma. The soft, supple palate leads to a lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Sensual:

The Sensual selection, from Valentin Bianchi, is 100% estate wine and sourced from vineyards situated at around 2,493 feet above sea level in Rama Caida, San Rafael, Mendoza. Established in 1928, Bodegas Valentin Bianchi is one of the oldest and most important wineries in South America. Located in Mendoza, Argentina, the winery has become a symbol of tradition, nobility and quality. Today, Don Valentin Bianchi's three grandsons run the winery.
