Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

An opaque, inky dark purple Malbec hand-harvested from the foot of the Andes in Argentina.
Shows intense dark plum and mocha on the nose, with a strong Damson plum jam flavour with slate and slight hint of cinnamon. Grippy tannins and a long plum finish with lingering mocha aftertaste. Great with roast beef or ham.
The grapes for this robust Argentine wine are hand harvested from the foothills of the Andes mountains. The wine is aged for 8 months in oak barrels. Winemaker is Gustavo Marin. Finishes with black pepper, espresso and mocha. - Community Wine Reviews
