One of my favorite wines to come out of Argentina. Gorgeous lush berry fruits combine with vanilla and oak for a soft silky wine. Well balanced, beautiful finish. One to have again and again.

Lovely value in a wine made by Michel Torino. This wine is not currently available in Ontario, but it makes an excellent case for a lesser known region for Malbec in Argentina - Cafayate.
The colour is a rather deep, ruminating violet-purple. Aromas of damson plum, kirsch, tobacco, anise, cardamom, hothouse flower, and bramble.
There is a surprising liveliness to the acidity that helps to carry the full flavours and high alcohol. Cassis, damson, tobacco, brown spice, blackberry. Glycerol mouthfeel.
Cafayate lies within the Salta province, in the north. It is a desert plateau and holds the record for highest elevation above sea-level of any wine production area on the planet. Day-night temperature swings (diurnal variation) preserve aromatics and acidity, sunlight intensely ripens the grapes, and depleted soils stress the vines to produce extra concentrated grapes.
It is more common to find aromatic whites grown here, but reds remain full bodied yet fresh.
