Small-production Malbec from over 100-year-old vines with amazing concentration, aromatics, and earthy notes of smoke and espresso.
Deep and bright color that evokes its name. Ethereal rose petal incense and spicy perfume with a bass note of smoky earth and espresso. Juicy and medium-bodied with red currant and black pepper on the palate. Finishes with smooth, lush tannins, ripe acidity and good length.
The ultimate in steak wine. Try with grilled steak, bbq wings or smoked gouda.
2016 was an extraordinary vintage with a lot of rain, and it was a year that pushed many for a change of style, a year to learn. López did shorter macerations and used less oak, and it shows in the wine. Quite a change and a step up from the 2015 I tasted next to it. Here, the wine comes through much fresher than the 2015, and it has floral and fruit notes.The Wine Advocate June 2018
A red with dark berry and spice character. Some earth, too. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins. Flavorful and juicy. Drink now.James Suckling April 2018
