In nose, complex due to its three vines. Notes of violet, pepper, cinnamon and licorice. In mouth, it is a balanced combination: The silkiness of the Malbec, the structure and power of the Cabernet Sauvignon, and the intensity of the Petit Verdot that integrates this assemblage. A complex and persistent wine.

The red blend 2017 Atemporal was 53% Malbec, 36% Cabernet Sauvignon and 11% Petit Verdot, a blend that changes with the vintage, but it's always produced with fruit from their vineyard in Vista Flores. It fermented in concrete vats and matured in 50/50 second and third use oak barrels for 12 months. They love to blend at Alta Vista (it's their Champagne roots!), and I must say this Bordeaux blend rocks. I'm not a fan of Petit Verdot on its own, but I think it's a grape that contributes a lot to blends. It's spicy, herbal and peppery, with ripeness but without excess. They have started using some larger barrels, not just 225-liter ones, so the oaking is subtler and the aromas and flavors are very integrated and in the background. 34,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in August 2019.
