This timeless Malbec aged in Taransaud Burgundy barrels has incredible depth and stature. A wine you can drink now or cellar.
The aromas of sweet French oak and espresso get more complex with every swirl of the glass, unveiling black plum, ripe raspberry, and violet aromas. The wine is full-bodied, dense, deep and chewy with flavors of black raspberry, plums, roasted herbs, and mint.
This beauty could be enjoyed now with a nice ribeye steak or leg of lamb since it shows incredible balance for such a concentrated wine.
The 2014 Malbec is produced with grapes grown in their Mayor Drummond vineyard in Luján de Cuyo, a vineyard that was planted in 1928 with a massale selection of vines in a classical zone of Mendoza. The grapes fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts for a total of 25 days followed by malolactic in tank and one year in barrels, one-third new, one-third second use and one-third were third use. The wine here is juicy and aromatic, very clean and with nicely integrated oak, with just a touch of roast aromas. It's fresh, with upfront fruit, perhaps less concentrated than in the past, which makes it more accessible and easy to drink. It ends very tasty.The Wine Advocate December 2016
A ripe and rich red with light jammy fruit, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Very drinkable and enjoyable now.James Suckling May 2016
Dark berry aromas are currently overshadowed by bitter chocolate and espresso. Sappy, dense and backward, showing noteworthy sweetness to the black fruit flavors. Less high-pitched and complex than the Cabernet Sauvignon, despite the fact that this is from much older vines. Finishes with sweet, ripe tannins and very good length.Vinous February 2015
