The Tonel 78 Barrel Select is a 50/50 Malbec and Bonarda blend from Luján de Cuyo and Medrano, respectively. Juicy and ripe, the nose has character and a certain rusticity. The palate is lush, round, juicy, and full, showing good balance and acidity. It's quite approachable now, but it also has stuffing to age.

Wine AdvocateClosed, serious and reticent, the 2016 Tonel 78 Barrel Select takes some time to really take off because it has a shy personality, with nice balance and harmony. The palate is vibrant and lively, with bright cherry fruit, even some citrus notes and very fine tannins. It's just delicious and cleanses your palate, leaving you ready for the next bite and the next sip. A great food wine. Great value too. In case you wonder, it's 50% Bonarda and 50% Malbec. 25,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in October 2017.
