For me the best producer in Mendoza, a great Malbec, great acidity, very fine tannins, gravelly.

On the nose; violet perfumed cassis, black raspberries, raspberries, plum, grassy notes, dark chocolate, bit of herbaceous and great purple florals.

On the palate; the body is medium to full. The tannins are firm, meaty & chewy. Fruits are ripe; black raspberries, raspberries, plum, crushed dry rocks, loamy dry top soil, leather, some pepper, light spice, dry tobacco, grassy notes, fresh red & violets, nice acidity with a nice balanced finish.

Photos of; open top fermenters with Malbec in them, outside tasting lounge for a nice day like Sunday and their Estate vines with Andes in the background.

An aromatic, very expressive behemoth. Coming from the arid Argentinian Andes foothills, this is a fantastically concentrated wine: the yield PER PLANT is less than a pound of grapes or 1/3 bottle of wine (!). Didn't finish it all and will be tested in 24 hours. Let's see.

glass-staining garnet color with lifted aromas of black fruit, espresso, violet, dried orange peel and subtle oak. High acidity that is beautifully balanced with the fruit. Lovely, very vibrant link

A lovely balanced wine in a perfect drinking window - worked surprisingly well with chorizo & cuttlefish, but definitely a red meat wine
