"A "FIND" AMONG "FINDS"!!

"Opaque purple; black cherry, plum, and spice box jumps from glass; succulent, already complex." (WA)

Winery Notes:
Only 12,000 bottles of this distinctive Malbec are produced, and the care that goes into those bottles is evident. The grapes come from 10 hectares of 12-year old vines in Tolombon, just outside Cafayate, at 5,250 feet above sea level. The wine is stainless steel fermented and then aged for 8 months in French and American oak barrels. Its slightly wild Cafayate personality shines through. In the glass its almost black purple color catches the eye immediately. Out of the glass waft aromas of black pepper, plums and black olives. On the palate it surprises, unlike any other Malbec, with flavors of roasted meat, plums, and a slight spiciness that keeps it interesting. The oak is well integrated, lending a nice roundness to the wine.
