The grapes from La Consulta Old Vines Vineyards give the wine its deep purple color, red and blue rich fruits flavors, soft tannins and fragance, while the La Consulta grapes give the wine great minerality and high fruit expression. The resulting wine is everything a good Malbec should be, with great purple color, and fragrance of red and blue fruit on the nose. The wine is well balanced, soft and smooth with good acidity and a clean finish. This wine make be consume now, or laid down for another 7 - 10 years.

CRITIC'S NOTES

Gritty aromas of grilled beef and asphalt blend with savory berry scents. Frankly, this is rough on the palate, with abrasive tannins. Savory herbal green-leaning flavors are peppery and bitter on a grabby finish.
