Deep purple color with black tones. Spiced, fresh and fruity nose. Aromas of blue fruits and typical Andean herbs that resem- bles jarilla and wild thyme. On the palate, the wine is energetic, voluptuous, with muscular tannins. It has a long and textural finish.

Rated 96 by James Suckling Fresh and firm cabernet franc with dark berry, violet and hints of stones. Medium body, refined and very focused. Crafted and thoughtful wine from this vintage. Drink now or hold. ... More details

Bright ruby-red. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, cassis and bitter chocolate are lifted by violet and wild herbs. Concentrated, plush and pliant but without any excessive sweetness to its palate-staining flavors of blackberry, blueberry, violet and spices. Perfectly integrated acidity somehow gives this seamless wine a light touch. Consistent from start to extremely long, ripely tannic finish, this wine was a sentimental favorite in my tastings this summer owing to its energy and classic dryness. To split hairs: these vines were just ten years old in 2016 and so the wine does not show quite the depth or refinement of tannins of the Cobos Malbec Marchiori Estate but this is a wine--and a site--to follow.
