Tasting Notes: This is a malbec making a statement. The statement is: You have to check me out! Intense in color, on the nose, and on the palate. A dense violet/ruby in the glass, the nose and palate are dominated by black fruit, mostly berry. The palate follows suite, with a hint of minerality to accent and balance this superb wine from Alto Valle del Rio Negro.
