Susana Balbo Signature Malbec 2017
Beautiful deep violet color with exploding aromas of blackberries, blueberries and black cherries. It is a wonderfully floral, pure expression of Uco Valley. On the palate it has enticing flavors of plum, berries, with a bright acidity and a lick of chalk. Well-integrated oak and filigree tannins. Its finish is elegant, velvety and long.

|There are some spicy and smoky aromas in the 2017 Susana Balbo Signature Malbec, which matured in oak barrels, 30% of them new, the rest second use, for 13 months. It comes from Altamira and has some 6% Cabernet Sauvignon. There are notes of ripe berries, blackberries and a touch of toast. It has flavors of creamy oak, herbs and ripe fruit. They have been lowering the oak in this range, but it's still oakier than the BenMarco range
