With this wine, Finca el Origen pays tribute to the art of assemblaging through the artwork by Andrés Casciani, in which he interprets how the union of the sea and the land created the amazing Andes mountain range and fossilized sea treasures that today are proof of its formation. This blend is the treasure arising from merging two potent varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, the king of red varieties, and Malbec, the emblematic Argentine grape. This wine stands out for being a very pleasant, fresh and fruit-forward wine.

Wine AdvocateThe light and approachable 2015 Estate Blend is composed of an almost 50/50 mix of Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec, where the two varieties are very nicely integrated. There are no notes of oak and the fruit and flowers are at the forefront. The palate is light and accessible, almost without tannins and with good acidity. It matured for eight months in French and American oak barrels. 54,000 bottles produced.

Wine SpectatorA straightforward red, with drying notes to the raspberry and red plum flavors. Hints of black licorice show on the finish. Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec.

Wine EnthusiastFurry berry and minty oak aromas are forced. This Cabernet-Malbec blend is saturated and intense to the point of being hard. Medicinal plum and berry flavors are basic, while a peppery shot of oaky mint returns on the finish.
