This Malbec shows awesome purity, with layers of raspberry, blackberry and fig compote with notes of plum sauce, mocha, graphite and violets.

From a 30 year-old vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo, this is a broad and enveloping malbec. The fresh scents of violets and cherries are shaded with sweeter, warmer tones of coffee and cinnamon. The tannins and acidity lend the wine tension. Cellar it for three or four years.
The 2005 Cadus Malbec, sourced from a single vineyard of the same name, spent 24 months in French oak and 2 years in bottle prior to release. Opaque purple-colored, it has an enticing nose of toasty oak, spice box, violets, black cherry, and plum. Sweetly-fruited, savory, and layered, it has enough fine-grained tannin to evolve for 2-3 years and will drink well through 2017.
Nieto Senetiner is one of the oldest wineries in Mendoza’s esteemed Lujan de Cuyo, with estate vineyards in the districts of Vistalba & Agrelo, located at 3,000 – 3,500’ elevation. These areas are some of the oldest and most traditional winemaking regions of Mendoza and were the birthplace of the Malbec quality revolution. Nieto Senetiner's wines, including its signature Nieto Malbec, are expressed via the tradition and vision of its three unique estate vineyard sites, each with distinct characteristics. The soft, supple texture of Vistalba, which is over 100 years old and one of the great heritage vineyards in Argentina, the power and elegance of Agrelo, featuring a unique cool climate Bonarda plantation and the unique concentration and structure of extreme high altitude Alto Agrelo.
In addition to showcasing the particular characteristics of each terroir, Nieto also engages in a creative blending process to to showcase the complexity to which Malbec can aspire.
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
