The 2020 Privada Family Blend is a blend of 40% Malbec, 30% Merlot and 30% Cabernet Sauvignon from Mendoza and was aged for 16 months in half-new French barrels. Dark purple in the glass. The intense nose offers ripe plum with spice notes, hints of tomato leaf, pepper, violet petals, chutney and interesting oaky aromas such as cedar and a touch of resin. Indulgent with a voluminous feel, refined tannins and good juice, it fills the mouth with flavor. A wine of both substance and agility. The finish of red and dark fruit adds to the complexity. This is an accomplished wine for the year.

A pretty complex and layered red with stones, cocoa powder, baking spices and a hint of violet to the currants and blackberries. Full-bodied yet juicy on the palate with plenty of silky tannins and a long, juicy finish. Family blend. 40% malbec, 30% cabernet sauvignon and 30% merlot. Consistent. Drink or hold.

This elegant full-bodied wine, made with Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes from old vines in Luján de Cuyo, offers plenty of black cherry and blackberry aromas with a touch of black pepper on the nose. Well-integrated and silky tannins frame the flavorful palate. Intense black fruit and spice notes are balanced by nice acidity. It has a pleasant and lingering finish.

Medium to full body with juicy, almost tart fruit. Silky wrap of tannins with a hint of savoriness at the end.

Direct and fresh-tasting, this red is dominated by dried cherry and berry flavors that are backed by crisp acidity, with dried, leafy accents midpalate that extend on the moderately tannic finish. Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot.
