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.
Complex and beautiful aromas of blackberry and blueberry. Licorice. Full body, fine tannins and a long finish. Sexy and pretty. Drink now.James Suckling May 2016
EDITOR'S CHOICE. Rich aromas of raisin, cassis and blackberry are supported by notes of vanilla, smoke and sweet almond paste. While this is dense and ripe, it's also a touch edgy and raw on the palate. Flavors of blackberry, cassis, dark spices and chocolate finish with a primary wave of residual fruit then a final dose of peppery spice. Drink through 2025.Wine Enthusiast December 2016
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
Healthy, bright medium ruby. Lovely lift to the aromas of blackberry, cassis, cocoa powder, violet and licorice, plus a whiff of mint. Tightly wound and penetrating, with intense black fruit flavors accented by herbs and flowers and lifted by brisk acidity. Finishes firmly tannic and persistent.Vinous/Stephen Tanzer March 2016
