This is a full-bodied and rich blend of 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Franc, showcasing the best of both grape varieties. An aromatic nose is fruit-focused, with floral and spicy notes adding complexity to the bouquet. Gripping tannins and good acidity support tart cherry and smoky flavors. A light note of mint completes the palate and extends the finish

This full-bodied and concentrated wine offers earthy berry and plum aromas. It has nice acidity and silky tannins. Black and red fruit blend with pleasant oaky flavors, leading to a lingering finish with tobacco notes.

The 2020 Lote Negro is 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Franc from the Uco Valley and was aged for 12 months in barrels. A vivid purple in hue. The aromatic profile features dark fruit, blackberry and balsamic notes with a layer of herbs and ash. Broad and free-flowing with a medium body, the firm, young tannins structure the palate, leaving it a little rigid. It will improve in the bottle

This is very bright and succulent with fruit that’s framed by broad, nicely etched tannins. Quite long, with some savory tobacco at the end.

Powerful blue fruit with a prickle of spice on the edges that keeps the final impression in the savory camp. Some perfumed herbal notes come through on the finish, adding detail to the power and length.
