Top Notes For
Neal Schaffer

The fruit used to make this wine comes from a single estate, “finca”, in higher elevation Los Arboles, Uco Valley. All manually harvested and aged in American and French oak for 12 months. Valley fruit draws out the iris, sage, peppercorns and “green” notes of Malbec. Tannins are chewy. You are getting a lot of wine for practically nothing. Definitely speaks to its terrior with tons of minerality. This truly gives you a sense of place in the glass. Bracing acidity lifts the chocolate, sweet tobacco, coconut, and dill from the American oak, but black and blue fruit stay fresh and integrated.
