|The 2014 Reserva Malbec is produced from grapes sourced from small plots of old vines sourced from different growers in La Consulta and Altamira in the Valle de Uco. It fermented in stainless steel with selected yeasts and 70% of the volume was put in used French oak barrels for six months while the rest was kept in tank. This is a classical, proportioned, ripe but balanced, well-oaked but without excess Malbec. The palate reveals notes of violets and spices and very fine tannins, with a slightly dusty texture and a faintly bitter finish.|
|Bright, full ruby. Pungent, varietally accurate aromas of blackberry, violet and licorice convey a lightly medicinal aspect. Concentrated, chewy and rich, with black fruit and chocolate flavors nicely framed and intensified by integrated acidity. Finishes with serious but ripe tannins and excellent length. I like this--and it's a lot of wine for the price.|

|Aromas of blackberries, walnuts and hints of chocolate follow through to a medium to full body, silky tannins and a long finish. Love the slightly bitter aftertaste. Drink now or hold.|
