Blended from the best lots of the 1928 estate vineyards, this iconic small-batch blend of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Petit Verdot is powerful yet smooth.
The aromas of dark cherries, plums and roasted cocoa come leaping out of the glass. This is a big but very suave wine with layers of ripe cherry, berry fruits, white pepper, mint, chocolate, caramel, smoke, and toast. There are loads of ripe, soft tannins, so this wine will certainly age beautifully for a decade or longer, but the temptation to drink it right away may be too much to resist.
Try with smoked meats and charcuterie.
Blackberries, blackcurrants, mocha, cedar and cola on the nose. Medium-to full-bodied with firm tannins. Structured, with dark, chewy fruit on the mid-palate. Rich, smoky and flavorful finish. Malbec, cabernet sauvignon and petit verdot.James Suckling May 2022
The vineyards are located in Mayor Drummond, Perdriel (Lujan de Cuyo) and Altamira (Uco Valley). The wine was aged for 16 months in 100% new French Taransaud oak.
