This timeless Malbec aged in Taransaud Burgundy barrels has incredible depth and stature. A wine you can drink now or cellar.
The aromas of sweet French oak and espresso get more complex with every swirl of the glass, unveiling black plum, ripe raspberry, and violet aromas. The wine is full-bodied, dense, deep and chewy with flavors of black raspberry, plums, roasted herbs, and mint.
This beauty could be enjoyed now with a nice ribeye steak or leg of lamb since it shows incredible balance for such a concentrated wine.
#13 on Top 100 Wines of 2019 Great midtier value is found in this full-force Malbec from a powerful vintage. A blueberry pie aroma is ripe to the max, alongside a whiff of graphite. The fully extracted palate bursts with cassis and berry flavors, while the more this breathes, the less heavy it seems. Drink through 2028.Wine Enthusiast November 2019
Bright saturated ruby. Deep, ripe aromas of blackberry, tropical dark chocolate and licorice, plus a subtle note of spicy oak (one-third new French for 12 months). Rich, sappy, mouthfilling Malbec with a chocolatey ripeness but also harmonious framing acidity to its dark fruit flavors. Boasts an obvious old-vines creaminess and depth (the vines are 91 years of age) and opens out horizontally on the back end, finishing with refined tannins and rising floral length. A distinctly European style of Malbec without any heaviness.Vinous September 2019
Some wild aromas of dried flowers and richly spicy dark plums and berries lead to a palate that has fleshy, fully ripe tannins and rich and ripe dark fruit to close. Super ripe, essence-like finish.James Suckling March 2019
Roberto de La Mota sources this serious, scented Mendoza Malbec from a 1928 pergola on Drummond. Sappy, dense and concentrated, with deftly handled one-third new oak, lots of perfume and layered tannins and dark berry fruit. 2020-2027Tim Atkin May 2019
