This is a great example of Mendoza Malbec. Incredible deep purple red color. Loads of spice and black and red cherry aromas with notes of chocolate. The berry flavors really pop on the palate as the wine has both a full mid palate and lively acidity that leads to an incredibly long finish. A bottom note of freshly brewed espresso keeps the mouth watering too. This one is a teenager at the moment, and should age very well (and not talk back when you don't give it the car keys!). Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses. A very flexible wine due to its concentration and balance.

Wine EnthusiastDespite humid conditions in Mendoza in 2015, this old vins Malbec shows a fine combination of blackberry, smoke and mocha aromas. It's in tip-top shape on the palate, although the acidity is a bit wiry. Oaky flavors of vanilla and mocha work well with its black cherry and blackberry fruit, which is unwavering on the finish. Drink through 2022.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Malbec is an assemblage of old vines from different parts of the Valle de Uco, Gualtallary and La Consulta. There is a slightly blurriness in the nose here, not as focused as previous vintages, a little musky and with hints of decayed flowers. The palate feels better, with good freshness and tasty flavors. 156,000 bottles were produced.
