An homage to the original Bordeaux blend of Malbec and Cabernet, this powerful wine has gripping tannins and great freshness and length.
Aromas of cassis with mint notes and oak. Medium-bodied and classically structured with good density. The Cabernet fruit melds seamlessly with the Malbec, creating a well-structured and balanced blend with moderate tannins and a lengthy finish.
This blend will pair well with any Cab-friendly dishes such as steak, pork, lamb, and strong cheeses. It can handle any dish with cream or butter sauces.
Blackberry, cassis and minerally aromas fill out the nose on this blend of Malbec and Cabernet. Clamping tannins are a touch hard, while this tastes of oak spice, wild berry fruits and herbs. An oak-rich finish comes with mildly astringent tannins. Decant if drinking now.Wine Enthusiast July 2020
The 2017 Beso de Dante is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Malbec and 10% Cabernet Franc from Vista Flores and Altamira in the Valle de Uco. The varieties are very nicely integrated, classical and polished with some Cabernet flavors and tannins. 18,000 bottles.The Wine Advocate October 2019
Very dense blackcurrant, elderberry and roasted-artichoke nose pulls you into the powerful and structured palate that has ample tannic power. Long, nobly dry finish that makes you want a great steak right now.James Suckling February 2019
Bright, dark ruby-red; not quite as dark as the Old Vine Malbec. More complex but reticent on the nose, offering aromas of blackberry, cassis, violet, dark chocolate and herbs. Plush, fine-grained and surprisingly dry and classic; juicier and less thick and sweet than the Old Vine Malbec. This broad, laid-back blend displays an obvious Cabernet Sauvignon herbacity that gives it another dimension. Finishes with firm tannins and sneaky persistence.Vinous September 2019
