Wow, this was a pleasant surprise. In perfect shape after 9 years and no oak in the wine. Plummy Malbec flavors with some nice herbs from the Cab. Plenty of acidity and life to this one. Check back in 5 years. — 8 months ago

Valles Calchaquies Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

This is a Malbec/Cab blend. Really nice! Acid is low very easy to drink. You could drink without food, but much better with. Soft, black/red fruit. A tiny bit hot, I would chill just a bit and it really opened up after :30. Decant if you can. I drank it in Buenos Aires at Chicle restaurant. — a month ago
