Tasting Notes

July 2012
Good Merlot from Argentina, why not? You have 30 plus year old vines from some highly respected real estate (Lujan du Cuyo) and it all works. This has deep dark fruits, with varietally correct plum leading the way and some well judged oak adding spice, along with a complimentary herbal edge. Medium fuller to fuller bodied this has good depth and mid palate weight, the tannins are ripe and finer grained, finishing with a touch of warmth to the dry finish. A solid effort and great value, this should hold up nicely over the next 2-3 years.


Awards, Reviews and other Notes

88 pts Argovino June 2013
A deep crimson merlot from 30-year-old vines that cuts to the chase, with a powerful and concentrated stream of prune and the faintest touch of mango. It's too hot to be very complex or refined, but certainly worth drinking. A good choice for a salt-crusted steak.
