An iconic 100% old-vine Malbec from the 80-year old Rosas Vineyard in the Uco Valley.
Deep, dark color—you could use it in an inkwell! Dense and concentrated but never loses its ability to exude the red and black fruits and spice that are the true expression of Malbec in Mendoza. This is a huge wine that is a blend of old-vine grapes from 2 of Mendoza’s most respected growers, located in two different districts. Only 4 barrels produced. While you certainly could drink this now, it will improve considerably with 3-5 years in the bottle. If you do drink it now, decant a few hours before drinking.
Try with meats such as beef, pork or chicken. Pairs well with aged cheeses.
A dense and layered red with blackberry, plum and hints of cappuccino character. Round and caressing texture. Flavorful finish. Old vine character with a new winemaking style for the winery. Drink now or holdJames Suckling June 2017
EDITORS CHOICE. A dark, smoky nose contains an elegant note of sandalwood that graces core blackberry aromas. This is an extracted but controlled Malbec, with weight as well as balance. Toasty, oaky blackberry flavors are chocolaty, while a powerful finish with unlimited length is well balanced.Wine Enthusiast May 2018
Lovely violet lift to the aromas of blackberry, mocha and dark chocolate. Suave and seamless but with no easy sweetness to the plush flavors of dark berries, licorice, graphite, chocolate and mocha. Dry and classic for this wine, and better as a result. Finishes with suave, spreading tannins and lovely length and grip.Vinous July 2017
