Excellent step up from your standard malbec

5 stars

Wow! Smooth, firm, with ripe plums, cherries give way to rich warm notes with hints of vanilla a dusting of cocoa powder. Great intense development into a long spicy finish. Good body, not too dry. Excellent depth, great complexity, great value from one of the best malbec producers around. And don't be put off by a little sediment in the bottom! The less filtered a wine is, the better!
