Vintages Wine Panel: The grapes for this Merlot are hand-picked into small 18 kg boxes. The juice is macerated on the skins for 34 days to deepen color, aromas and flavors. The extended maceration is complemented by 14 months in new French oak, creating a wine that is well balanced between fruit, acids and tannins. It is this premier producer’s eye to such detail that has it quickly emerging as one of Argentina’s top wineries to watch. My note: Blackberries and other dark fruits jump from the glass. Full-bodied with meshed aromas of smoke and dried herbs.

Merlot food pairings: grilled lamb, meatballs, chili dog, Mexican dishes, Tandoori-flavored dishes.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
