Tasting Notes

This Malbec brings visions of a garnet Bugatti ascending from a high Mendoza vineyard up an arid Andean mountain road. The wine is carrying aromatics of ripe plum, graphite, steak tartare, exotic wood spice, pepper and rose buds. Racy acidity accelerates a vibrant palate of black currant, plum, wild blackberry and sandalwood that finishes with a touch of white pepper and mineral. Smooth tannins and wonderful fleshy fruit round-out this exhilarating wine. – Chuck Reininger, Winemaker
