Winemaker Notes

The aromas of sweet French oak and espresso get more complex with every swirl of the glass, unveiling black plum, ripe raspberry, and violet aromas. The wine is fullbodied, dense, deep and chewy with flavors of black raspberry, plums, roasted herbs, and mint. This beauty could be enjoyed now with a nice ribeye steak or leg of lamb since it shows incredible balance for such a concentrated wine.

93 points James Suckling

This is a focused and very polished Malbec with dark berries such as blackberries and hints of black truffles and walnut shells. Full body, tight, and focused with firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish.

91 points Wine Advocate

Cropped from a typical El Niño vintage that was cooler and with a late harvest, the 2016 Malbec comes from their old vineyard Finca Drummond in Luján de Cuyo, which was planted ungrafted 88 years ago at 980 meters in altitude. It had a classical vinification in stainless steel followed by 12 months in French oak barrels, divided equally between new, second use and third use. There is some more freshness here compared with the 2015, and it's clean, precise and somewhat serious, quite surprising for this price level. It has some floral notes, a very balanced palate and very fine tannins. It has the profile of a wine that should develop slowly and nicely in bottle.
