Nose

The aromas are shown in delicate layers of dark berry fruits and cassis.

Palate

On the palate it seems that cedar and spicy notes are delivered in an elegant way. Smooth and velvety with an intense concentration, elegant fruit, along with delicate spicy notes. Finishes long and lingering, with soft, velvety tannins.

Harvest

Many in Mendoza have started calling 2015 "el año Bordelés", or "the Bordelais year" because of the cool summer, early autumn rains and generally low alcohols and high acidities in the main red varieties. The best Malbecs of 2015 have a refinement and elegance that only occur in very cool years. What was key in the 2014-2015 season was parcelization and low-yields farming. The Malbec in parcels with stony and limestone soils were undisputed super-stars. Because of the warm winter, the harvest was between 10 and 15 days earlier than usual.
