A 6 region blend, deep Ruby with aromas of dark red fruits, spice and dried herbal and floral notes. On the palate flavors of blueberry and blackberry with licorice and pepper oak. Fine grainy tannins, lively acidity, medium(+) finish ending with fruit, subtle oak and savory spice. Nice!

Stock photo, but shared with Argentinian friends over Asado- an Argentine BBQ- complete with a newly bought Argentine style grill. I hadn’t had this for years, & was surprised at the balance, restrained oak, &full, juicy mid palate. Drank after a Vaqueras red & matched the smokiness of the meat.

Solidus ir sodrus skonis. Tinkamas prie jautienos. Džiovinimo laipsnis labai mažas.

Quintessential Malbec. Full bodied, dark cherries, plums, raisins, fig. Hints of vanilla. Some peppery notes mixed with anise followed by velvet violet notes. Tannins are rounded, longer well. Very smooth, well balanced and constructed. Compared to the 2015, this is a bit more mellow with less tobacco and baking spice but delicious nonetheless

Lite reduktiv i stilen och behövde en del luftning för att öppna upp sig rätt. Plommon, mörk choklad, blåbärspaj. Rund textur. Alkoholen sticker lite för mycket i avslutet men i övrigt habilt om något lite linjärt.

Very bold, full bodied malbec. Structuted and complex, fig preserve, typical malbec acidity, noticeable tannins, but just too jammy for my taste... this is a big wine, I'm missing the mineral and more restrained taste of some malbecs. Good for a big fatty steak though.
