"From 100% malbec grown in Vistalba, at 980 meters above sea level. Intense, pure, full of black fruit flavors and young aromas, this Malbec emphasizes the soul of Malbec, the undisputed king of Argentine reds. The wine was aged during 10 months in oak barrels, 95% French and 5% American. Nevertheless, special care is taken to preserve the necessary balance between wood and fruit without losing its spontaneity. Non clarified and unfiltered."

96 points "Piercing aromas of violet, iron and blueberry fruit are followed by a massively rich, yet amazingly pure and precise palate of boysenberry and blackberry flavors. The riveting finish is loaded with minerality and dark, velvety fruit. This is still young, with loads in reserve. Malbec. Best from 2009 through 2018. 755 cases made. –JM " Best 2009-2018
