Tasting Notes: As Argentina's best-known red variety, malbec is usually quite dark. But this bright-pink sparkling wine may just change your mind about malbec. With nearly a year on the lees during the secondary fermentation, the wine has developed a lovely, complex profile. The red-fruit aspect, with cherry and strawberry, is complemented by the bright finish.
Tasting Notes: Deep violet red color beckons you to the glass, which opens up with notes of baked dark fruits and blackberry compote. This is a little Old World in style, but herbaceous with a plush mouthfeel.

Tasting Notes: A perfect example how a red wine, without any oak or other barrel treatment, can still exhibit plenty of structure. 100% malbec, from a vineyard at nearly a mile in altitude, the wine is definitely driven by its ripe and intense fruit. The nose and palate are layered with plenty of dark tree fruit, with hints of spice.
