Category: Red Wine
Varietal:Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon
Region: Argentina » Mendoza
Producer: Susana Balbo
Not currently available.

Beautiful deep violet color with exploding aromas of blackberry, black cherry, and violets framed by hints of oak and mint. The wonderful aromas are mirrored on the palate and they are joined by ripe plum fruit and a hint of toasty vanilla, bittersweet chocolate, and a hint of mint on the finish. This is a very ripe and rich style of wine, but the Cabernet adds structure, reigning in the fruit and focusing it into a long finish. A wine that truly struggles between its fun and serious side.

Wine Advocate

The 2009 Malbec included 5% Cabernet Sauvignon in its makeup and received the same elevage as the Cabernet. Attractive aromas of pain grille, smoke, mocha, spice box, and black cherry set the stage for a plush, full-bodied, succulent wine with intense flavors and a seamless finish. It is likely to evolve for 1-2 years but can be approached now.

Score: 92. —Jay Miller, December 2011.
