This 8 year old Argentinian Malbec is drinking very nicely now. Showing black fruits with earth, wood, spices, chocolates, tobacco, cola, graphite and peppercorn.
Big, bold, rich and extracted with medium plus acidity and long legs.
Good right out of the bottle and better as it opens up and shows some tannins (1 hour).
Delicious and peaking now, so drink up.
Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.
I paired it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
14.9% alcohol by volume.

Era piu delicioso. Meno dolce come dabruzuo oppure Ninervoir che Angelica ha portato. E piu equibilibrato nel gusto. — 13 days ago
Cor vibrante e bom corpo, o aroma é agradável e sutil, lembra frutas vermelhas, mas com o álcool levemente destacado. O sabor também é bem agradável, e nele também se destaca um pouco o álcool. Quase nenhuma adstringencia, com um bom rastro. Sente-se um leve toque amadeirado mas a sensação de frutas vermelhas maduras ainda se sobressai. Ficou ótimo com queijo. — 11 days ago

This is a very tasty Malbec Blend from Mendoza, Argentina. Well balanced with nice complexity and a great mouthfeel.
Not so good right out of the bottle, so be patient, it is well worth it. Took a couple of hours to open up properly.
A great wine to sip on by the porch. This 5 year old is peaking now and it is lovely.
I paired it with cheeses nuts and crackers.

Omg didn’t expect to feel enthused and I am at least enthusing. It’s got that good ripeness but is ohhhh so fresh in an unpretentious way like it is en pointe but it took it til age 16 for madame to approve it for pointe (not projecting real life nahhh) so it says “elegant red and black fruit with undercurrents earth” but ”oh hi I’m so ripe cause like, The sun is hot!”. Ugh I adore this didn’t expect to and I do. Egads. — 11 days ago
