Dark ruby colored, it offers a complex bouquet of cloves, cinnamon, tobacco and black cherries. On the palate, layers of ripe red fruits are combined with notes of dark chocolate and slight anise leading to an amazingly long finish. It a delicious wine with chocolate cakes, brownies or red fruit based cake.

Wine AdvocateThe 2011 Signature Late Harvest Malbec is produced because at one point Susana went crazy about a late harvested Garnacha so she decided to do this with Malbec from Agrelo, left on the vine until the first freezing and fermented in barrel where the wine aged for two years. It has 80 grams residual sugar and 14% alcohol. It has notes of raisins, figs and dates, baked apples and cinnamon. The palate is medium-bodied, with good balance between sugar, acidity and alcohol, good persistence and freshness. It should work well with hard cheeses. Susana serves it with figs stuffed with blue cheese, and perhaps chocolate. I should try the combination next time. Drink now-2018.
