On the nose, beautifully, ripe and floral fruits of; blackberries, blueberries black raspberries, sweet tarry notes, black licorice, loamy soils, dry clay, dark rich warm soils, soft baking spices and very fresh florals. On the palate, the body is full. The tannins soft and dusty. It was really nice from when it first splash the palate. Nice warm medium spice. The fruits are lightly ruby, ripe and fresh. Blackberries, blueberries, black raspberries, black plum. Dark chocolate, mocha, caramel, great baking spices, loamy clay, stones, clay, crushed rocks, beautiful round acidity and a rich, round, elegant and well balanced finish. Photos of; their Estate Malbec vines, signage on the year the Estate vineyard was planted and Malbec grapes just put in a open top fermenter.

Probably the smoothest and most polished Malbec I’ve tasted. Concentrated with beautiful chocolate note. Superfine tannins with a peppery finish. Nice!

Really light for a Malbec, but exactly what we were looking. Nice to have around, but not for special occasions.

Great Malbec experience. level of sweetness matches well the smoky and raw flavors. Tones of ripened orange peel, leather, wood, cider... Gradually gets better when decanted.

This Argentinian Malbec is harvested purely from 1928 Malbec vines imported from France. It’s a sophisticated wine, with some dark fruit but predominated by elegant floral notes.
