This is the asado (BBQ for us Americans) wine you have been searching for! Deep blackcurrant and oak aromas with opaque red/purple color. Flavors of black cherry liqueur, red currants, and a touch of black tea. Lush without seeming heavy, the wine seems to unfold in layers, keeping the palate excited well past the lengthy finish. Plenty of tannin for aging without any harsh astringency. Food Pairing: Pairs well with most fine food presentations like duck in a fruit sauce, leg of lamb persillade, osso buco, and even a simple filet mignon.

This Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon blend opens with blueberry and currant aromas that hint at the exotic. A flush racy palate is high in acid and a touch abrasive. Plum and currant flavors are not what you'd call cushioned, while this ends with hard edgy tannins and a reprise of scouring acidity. In terms of aging, this will last a long time. Drink through 2027.

Last, but not least, the 2014 Júbilo is a blend of Malbec with 40% Cabernet Sauvignon from 12-year-old vines in their Vista Flores estate vineyards that matured in barrels for 18 months. There is a little more new oak here, and the effect of the aging is more noticeable than in their other wines. The blend also makes the nose more predictable and mainstream. However, it's very good at what it is, slightly more international with the dusty, serious tannins of the Cabernet. This should improve in bottle. This is clearly riper than 2013.
