Spice and black cherry cola aromas with notes of cocoa. The berry flavors pop on the palate from its depth and lively acidity, finishing with hints of espresso. Pairs well with foods such as venison or wild game, steak, pork, quail, all types of lamb, and medium-strong cheeses.

Pure berry and cassis aromas are concentrated and show no holes. This Uco Valley Malbec feels pure, direct and linear, albeit with slightly scratchy tannins that should dissipate in due time. Blackberry and dry spice flavors finish full and grabby, with muscularity. Drink through 2028.

Concentrated boysenberry and Asian spice flavors are strapped together by fresh tannins and zesty acidity in this ripe, juicy style. Offers creamy hints, with dark chocolate and mocha notes on the well-structured finish. Drink now through 2025. 7,000 cases made, 7,000 cases imported.

The regular Malbec now shows the age of the vines on the label-Old Vine Malbec-even though they are the same vines that have always been used in the past. The 2016 Old Vine Malbec was produced with grapes from vines in different parts of the Valle de Uco, Gualtallary and La Consulta. This is also quite oaky with plenty of sweet spices and some creaminess.
