Winemaker's Notes:

Septima Malbec is an intense red with purplish highlights. There are aromas of fresh cherries balanced with toast and vanilla, from aging in American oak, mixed with notes of strawberry jam in nice balance with reminiscence of rosemary, watermelon, pear and raspberry. Soft and elegant sweet tannins which remind of raspberry jam. Its aftertaste is fruity with a hint of smoky oak. Well-balanced with a lingering finish.
My Notes:

About Bodega Septima:

Making stellar wine is the sole focus at Bodega Septima, a pristine winery situated in the acclaimed Mendoza winemaking district of Argentina.

Founded in 1999, the winery was the seventh (in Spanish “septima”) winery introduced by the Codorníu Group, known for its world-famous cava and still wines from Spain and Napa Valley. Imported exclusively by Aveníu Brands, Septima produces authentic wines that are modern, with a nod to tradition.
