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.
Large-scale berry aromas are foresty and mossy, with a black pepper note providing spice. This Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon blend is dense and chewy, with bright acidity affording balance. Blackberry and cassis flavors are full and fresh, not baked and jammy. On the finish, this is at one moment savory and the next it's slightly raisiny.Wine Enthusiast September 2018
The 2016 Beso de Dante is a blend of 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 45% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Franc sourced from vineyards in Vista Flores and Altamira in the Valle de Uco. It's floral and expressive, open and very nicely integrated, with a notable absence of herbal notes, just a bit of spiciness (think paprika). This is a compact blend with power and finesse, with very good balance.The Wine Advocate June 2018
Bright medium ruby. Pure, vibrant aromas of blueberry, blackberry, graphite and licorice, lifted by a violet topnote. Densely packed and sweet but a step up in energy and definition from the Old Vine Malbec owing to its floral lift and saline minerality. This pristine, lively wine conveys an almost Pinot-like sappiness and a low-yield mouthfeel. It should expand with another year or two of cellaring and evolve slowly and gracefully. A superb example of its vintage.Vinous July 2018
Fresh herbs, freshly-picked blackcurrants, spices, nutmeg and cedar. Firm and structured on the palate with pretty acidity, lots of blue and red fruit and a mineral-driven finish. Cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc and malbec.James Suckling April 2018
