A glass-coating opaque purple color, it sports an alluring nose of toasty oak, mineral, licorice, lavender, exotic spices, and assorted black fruits. Dense, rich, and voluptuous on the palate, this is a full-bodied beauty.
“A very rich, dense and velvety red. There is a fine expression of black fruit on the nose and palate, while the oak is beautifully integrated to make a very fine, powerful yet complex wine with at least a decade in front of it.”
Steven Spurrier, Decanter.com, February 2017 (2011 vintage)
“The source of this, Susana Balbo’s top Malbec, has shifted from Agrelo to the Uco Valley since 2010, showing finer tannins and more minerality on the palate. Sweet, yet fresh, with subtle oak and classic Uco colour, intensity and poise.”
