#4 Enthusiast 100 2020. Concentrated black-fruit aromas alongside hints of cardamom and coriander open this lush Malbec. Blackberry, cassis and dark plum flavors are pure and agile on the palate. Enjoy through 2024.

The 2018 Old Vine Malbec comes from vineyards in La Consulta and Gualtallary, both in the Uco Valley in Mendoza. It's a floral, juicy and expressive bottling with nicely integrated oak, fine and round tannins and some finesse.

A Malbec made from a combination of grapes from the Uco Valley that spent 14 months aging in French barrels, 35% of them new. Remarkably purple in the glass. The delicate, fruity nose ranges from sour cherry to blackberry with hints of syrup and mint. A very interesting wine, it is sugary but presents a firm, fleshy palate, tacky tannins and a juicy flow with a pleasantly contained freshness. The finish is long and flavorful and followed by a teasing aftertaste.

Lithe, with red cherry and dried raspberry flavors that feature hints of hot stone. Medium-grained tannins provide grip on the juicy, well-spiced finish. Drink now through 2024. 7,000 cases made, 7,000 cases imported.
