Brand Susana Balbo
Alcohol/vol 14.5%
Beautiful deep violet color with exploding aromas of blackberry, black cherry and blueberries framed by hints of spices and mint. The wonderful aromas are mirrored on the palate and they are joined by ripe plum fruit and notes of toasty vanilla, bittersweet chocolate and a hint of mint on the finish. This is a ripe and rich style of wine with long velvety finish. Pairing: Pairs well with a wide range of foods from beef and pork to game birds or even meat-based pastas.

Ripe blackberry, blueberry, plum, violet, sandalwood and ash on the nose. It’s medium-to full-bodied with firm, silky tannins and fresh acidity. Juicy, bright and delicious. 94% malbec and 6% petit verdot. Drink now or hold.

  • v93

The 2019 Malbec Susana Balbo Signature contains a 6% dash of Petit Verdot, both from Paraje Altamira, Uco Valley and was aged in 30% new barrels for 13 months. Striking purple in the glass. The complex nose presents notes of plum and sour cherry with hints of violets, cedar and herbs. Free in the mouth, the juicy freshness and fine, chalky tannins dominate the palate, lending outline and depth. The finish is compact and structured by the reactive tannins. A couple more years in the bottle will do the 2019 a world of good. Drinking window: 2023 - 2038

The 2019 Susana Balbo Signature Malbec, produced with grapes from Finca La Delfina in Paraje Altamira, contained 4% Petit Verdot, and that could be the reason why it felt a bit roasted when tasted next to the 2018 that was balanced by Cabernet Franc. It felt slightly riper, and the tannins were grainy. It needs food. 144,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2020.
