Blended from the best lots of the 1928 estate vineyards, this iconic small-batch blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot is powerful yet smooth.
The aromas of dark cherries, plums and roasted cocoa come leaping out of the glass. This is a big but very suave wine with layers of ripe cherry, berry fruits, white pepper, mint, chocolate, caramel, smoke, and toast. There are loads of ripe, soft tannins, so this wine will certainly age beautifully for a decade or longer, but the temptation to drink it right away may be too much to resist.
Try with smoked meats and charcuterie.
The 2013 Unus is a blend of 65% Malbec that brings roundness, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon that provides the tannic structure and 10% Petit Verdot that adds meatiness to the wine. The grapes were sourced from different subzones of Mendoza. The nose shows great balance between ripeness, elegance, fruit and soil, with great freshness and poise, feeling the effect of the vintage in a subtler wine. There are notes of violets and morello cherries, fine spices and incipient complexity. The palate is equally balanced, with fine-grained, earthy tannins, subtle with even some austerity and a long, supple finish.The Wine Advocate December 2016
