Aromas of fresh red and black fruit, with notes of graphite and spiced tones reminiscent of liquorice and Jamaican pepper. Dry, good and slightly meaty palate, with balanced acidity and soft, round tannins. Full medium-bodied, fresh and very attractive mouthfeel. Highly attractive fruity finish; elegant and complex on the palate.
The 2018 Edad Moderna Blend is equal parts of Malbec, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot, mostly from old vines fermented and matured in raw concrete; despite that, it had a curious smoky twist. It had energy and complexity, with the varieties very integrated (most were fermented together), juicy and supple, with fresh flavors of ripe fruit and some chalky tannins. It should do great with food. 6,000 bottles were filled in October 2018.
