WINEMAKER’S NOTES: The 2015 vintage was well balanced, with excellent grain ripeness and firm tannins. Malbec fruit provides red fruit, spices and licorice, good acidity, and round and sweet tannins. Older vines add truffles, dry fruit and minerality, in addition to significant and more rustic tannins suitable for aging. The final result is a wine of great balance, good aromatic expression and elegance. 2015 Vintage: only 5,760 bottles produced.
