One of my better Monday night kind of wines. I could come back to this on any day of the week, that’s for sure. Not exactly a pop n’ pour kinda bottle but opens up nicely within the hour. Good color and good nose but even better on the pallet: bold with blueberry and some dark plum, balanced acidity, plus some tobacco and vanilla. Light tannings and alcohol with a medium finish. As time progresses some tertiary oak and smoke notes. Yeah, Argentine Malbec does it again.

Deep Ruby with aromas of dark fruits and spicy meaty notes. On the palate flavors of blackberry and plum with notes of cedar and spice wrapped in vivid acidity. Fine tannins, medium finish ending with fruit and spice. Tasting Sample!

Delightful Malbec. Medium acidity, nose of black cherry, violets, lavender. Well balanced on the palate.
