Aromas of smoky oak and cherry. Mouthwatering, penetrating flavors of ripe red and black cherries, red berries. Quite rich and velvety on the palate, and finishes with just enough grip to make it a real winner with food. This is some seriously sexy Malbec.
Pairs well with grilled or smoked meats such as beef, pork, and lamb. Also complements dishes prepared with cheese or cream sauces.
"The 2010 Amorio is 100% Malbec from the Vista Flores and Altamira Vineyards with an average age of 44 years. The wine spent 14 months in French and American oak, a bit of it new, before bottling without fining or filtration. Dark ruby red in color, it exhibits an already complex aromatic array of cedar, cinnamon, mocha, violets, black cherry, and plum. More structured than the two previous wines and not as forward, this savory effort will benefit from another 1-2 years of cellaring and deliver prime drinking from 2013 to 2022.
The Wine Advocate
"Distinguished by bitter black fruit flavors, this has firm, structural tannins that combine with those flavors to give a malbec with energy and terrific tension. For roast game."
Wine & Spirits
"Good bright ruby-red. Complex nose melds blackberry, chocolate, licorice, wild herbs and smoky minerality. Creamy, lush and sweet but with just enough acidity to give it balance. This sexy, seamless wine finishes with very sweet, edge-free tannins. Impressive in a New World style; some tasters will find this to be too much."
