Collection is our second label behind Grand Vin as we understand it in Bordeaux. In other words, a very similar composition cut, not with so much guarding potential but very accessible and easy to take young, in which the elegance and finesse of an bordelais assemblage are noted, as well as the concentration and power of Mendoza. The aging is adapted to the concentration and is done in French oak barrels for 10 to 12 months. The varietal composition of the Collection always carries a majority of Malbec, completed by Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah and Petit Verdot.

VinousFull ruby-red. Almost liqueur-like aromas and flavors of blackberry, black cherry, mocha, game, leather and spices. Plush, plummy and sweet; a fat, open-knit, slightly high-toned wine with lovely depth of fruit, good balance and a sexy violet note contributing inner-mouth lift. This is seamless and inviting D535right now. Finishes with serious ripe, dusty, chocolatey tannins and very good length.

Antonio Galloni, July 2017
