This wine was made from meticulously tended Malbec grapes grown on high-elevation, old vines in the Lujan de Cuyo region of Mendoza, in the foothills of the Andes. The grapes are harvested by hand, and the wine is fermented in stainless steel before being aged for 6 months in a blend of new used French oak.
Deep ruby-purple in color, this wine boasts exquisite aromas of blackberries, blueberries, plum and spice. It is well balanced with ample structure and mild tannins. Dark cherry and hints of wood smoke emerge on the finish to leave an elegant and lasting impression.

Enjoyed drinking this Malbec, but think it would have been better to wait a few years
First encountered this wine at an upscale local restaurant. One of the best Malbec's that I ever had the pleasure of tasting. Ordered a case from Ninety+Cellars and am enjoying it very much! Good service and a fair price from this vendor.
Nice light wine for a glass or two at the end of the day. I'm a huge fan of 'earthy' and I got some with this wine. Just finished my last bottle yesterday; going back for more. :-)
This wine will be served at our daughters wedding in May, 2015. We expect even one additional year of bottle age will soften the already modest tannin's. That said, the wine is drinking very well today and is a perfect match for grilled meats, red sauced pasta dishes and spiced dishes of all types including vegetable only.
