Tasting Notes

This Malbec has a fun youthfulness beginning with aromas of fresh-picked blue berries and black currants atop a soft rustic bed of sandalwood, white pepper, celery seed, cocoa powder and a sprig of mint. Soft tannins, mineral and a hint of graphite meld with a vibrant body of black currant, mulberry and black berry. My memories of Mendoza become more vivid with every sip!  – Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
