This Malbec is dark crimson red with deep violet and black components. This meaty wine shows aromas of ripe, concentrated dark fruits like plums. It begins ample in the mouth, with rich and smooth tannins. The long finish has mineral notes that combine with toasty notes to lend great complexity.

"The 2006’s were bottled in early April 2008, just a week before I tasted them. The 2006 Malbec Vina Venturin is purple/black-colored with an expressive nose of toasty oak, lavender, mineral, blueberry, and black cherry. More forward than the other 2006 Malbecs, it also exhibits greater complexity, sweeter fruit, awesome depth, and a 60-second finish."
The Wine Advocate
"This is rather flashy, with lots of mocha and fruitcake aromatics up front, backed by lush raspberry ganache, fig sauce and plum jam flavors. The long, rich, velvety finish has plenty of latent grip, with the fruit sailing on."
