The nose is intense and complex, packed with cassis, raspberry and floral scents of violets, that are characteristic of the “Adrianna” Vineyard. Oak aging adds subtle vanilla, tobacco and liqueur notes.
On the palate, a sweet entry leads to an ample, complex wine, with soft, round tannins that linger throughout the finish.
Adrianna vineyard: aluvial origin. Gravel and limestone. Rounded rocks in the bottom.
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.
