Overview Back for an impressive third time, this crowd-pleasing Argentine Malbec marries rich fruit flavors with dark, earthy notes. The winery states that its team “aims to make wines that are as good as wines twice their price,” something at which we think they’ve succeeded admirably. That might be due in part to their use of a double manual selection process (they go through the grapes twice) to make sure only good ones make it in. That work is time consuming and expensive, but it’s definitely reflected in this excellent wine.

Nose The rich red fruit, berries, and earthiness are evocative. One taster detected some sulfur, though.

Mouth It’s silky and elegant, with impressive structure and balance. Our blind tasters were particularly fond of the bold, velvety fruit flavors.
