"Beautifully fruited and immediately appealing, the wine is filled with blackberry, dark plum and blueberry characters with nuances of mixed spice and smoked meat notes. The palate is succulent and rounded, and shows excellent mid palate weight and fruit intensity, wonderfully supported by silky texture and supple tannins. At its best: now to 2019" Sam Kim Wine Orbit 

On the nose red summer fruit aromas dominate with a slight touch of black pepper. On the palate there is an attractive concentration of ripe red fruits which gives volume to the wine. It has a good structure and the tannins are soft and smooth. Its finish is long with notes of coffee. Perfect with grilled meats, poultry in sauce and a wide variety of Italian pasta dishes.

Situated on the banks of the river Mendoza, an ideal zone for the production of the Malbec grapes, at 700 m above the sea level on clayey and alluvial soils, the good temperature oscillation and the average fertility of these soils allow to obtain on this variety very aromatic grapes with soft tannins.
