Trendy violet reflex, soft and jammy. Another great bargain from Argentina(with an Italian touch).

Nice ripe aromas, plenty of oak but pretty soft and jammy.

Pours apple in color. Aromas of smoke, plum and cigar. Aroma of a heavily toasted barrel. Flavors of plum and dark berries along with cigar. A slight acidic bite. Medium + body. As for the finish the Flavors dissipate quickly but the acid stays longer

Higher elevation more calcareous soils and a bit more new oak a lot more 100% versus 1/3 for the terroir

Nice Malbec. Tastes smoother after it breathes. A bit earthy.

Vintage 2013 lacks power. Easy going, good for a pizza

I am not a Malbec fan. I hoped 12 years of aging would help. The first minute was gloriously aromatic and soft dark fruit. Then hard as nails . Just not my grape .
