This Gran Reserva Malbec is from Vistalba in Lujan de Cuyo and undergoes 18 months aging in new French and American oak. It handles the oak with aplomb, the nose vibrant and well-defined, with lifted cassis, blueberry and blackberry aromas that display clarity and focus. The palate is medium-bodied with fine, silky tannins and a very harmonious patina of dark chocolate-tinged black fruit. The finish is reserved, refined and does not like to boast. This is a very well-crafted, considered premium Malbec.
