Aromas of cool earth, dried mushroom and dark fruits follow through to a full body, tight tannins and savory finish. Drink now.

The 2015 A Lisa is mostly Malbec with some 9% Merlot and a 1% pinch of Petit Verdot, a wine that shows the potential of Río Negro in Patagonia and the style of Noemía at a very attractive price and at the same time is easy to drink. 2015 seems to be an excellent vintage in the region, and this wine, which only saw 30% of its volume in neutral, well-seasoned oak barrels while the rest was kept in stainless steel for some nine months, shows a balance and freshness that can compete with the fines vintages produced. In his search towards elegance, finesse and drinkability, this vintage shows a profile that would be somewhere between Burgundy and southern Rhône, with a mixture of flowers and red cherries, insinuating, whispering, with a polished palate. It's sapid, tasty, almost salty, with ultra-elegant tannins and superb balancing acidity that makes it extremely harmonious; this is only 13.5% alcohol, one of the lowest--if not the lowest ever--but the thing is the balance, not the alcohol, which is unnoticeable in all the wines. This may very well be the best A Lisa ever, but from what I hear, 2016 could be the best harvest for Noemía as a whole, so I'm dying to taste the wines in bottle... One to buy by the truck load! 90,000 bottles were filled in early 2016. He's going to change the bottle to a Burgundian one from 2017, as he thinks it would better represent the character of the wine.



Winemaker Notes

Dense violet and plum. Dark berries, cherry and cocoa on the nose. Excellent structure with fruit notes of cherry and cassis; ­medium-bodied with balanced, persistent tannins.
