The 2021 Estate Malbec was produced with grapes from Valle de Uco (Campo de los Andes), and half of the wine matured in lightly toasted French oak barrels for one year. It’s fruit-driven, with integrated oak that gives it a spicy twist and varietal aromas and flavors. It’s sleek and polished, easy to drink.
It opens with a black raspberry and pomegranate bouquet with hints of musty earth. On the palate, this wine is medium plus bodied with plus acidity. The mouthfeel is round, rich and savory. The flavor profile is an extracted blackberry and black olive blend with notes of pomegranate, oak, and black licorice. I also detected hints of black pepper and spiced black plum. The finish is dry, and its concentrated flavors linger and last for a while.
