A stunning Malbec that combines fruit from the two best appellations in the Uco Valley - Paraje Altamira and Gualtallary - this is a heady, aromatic, thrillingly well-balanced red with notes of tangerine, fennel and blackberry fruit, filigree tannins and stylish oak.See detailed press review

Saturated bright ruby. Lively aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille and violet. Richer, deeper and weightier than the Malbec Paraje Altamira, offering smooth flavors of blackberry, blueberry, violet and dark chocolate. Finishes compellingly sweet, with supple tannins and lingering black fruits and chocolate--and without any loss of focus or energy. Great Malbec for the price--or any price!See detailed press review
