This fantastic Malbec hails from a 90 year-old vineyard in the respected Malbec producing appellation of Lujan de Cuyo in Mendoza.
Fruit driven - loads of black currents and black raspberries, fragrant crushed flowers and cedar chips, tobacco and molten chocolate. The palate is supple, quite slick and very concentrated. There is dense fruit and plenty of spice plus saline minerality - coffee and spice flavours linger with powdery tannins on the finish.
Suggested drinking: now thru 2015
