This is their 2016 Old Vine Patagonia Malbec. I’ve requested Delectable add it.

On the nose, dark, currants; blackberries, blueberries, black raspberries, dark rich semi-sweet soil, beautiful minerality, tarry notes and dark lavender & violets.

On the palate, the body medium. Tannins are firm, tarry and sticky. Ripe, juicy fruits of; blackberries, blueberries, black raspberries, dark rich semi-sweet soil, leather, underbrush beautiful minerality, tarry notes and dark lavender & violets. Beautiful natural acidity and a rich, ripe, lush, polished finish.

Photos of, their wood fired smoker & BBQ grill, the vineyard is top netted to prevent hail damage. It’s an issue in Mendoza and Bodega Riccitelli.
