Awards, Reviews and other Notes

91 pts Wine Advocate Issue #237 June 2018
Cropped from a typical El Niño vintage that was cooler and with a late harvest, the 2016 Malbec comes from their old vineyard Finca Drummond in Luján de Cuyo, which was planted ungrafted 88 years ago at 980 meters in altitude. It had a classical vinification in stainless steel followed by 12 months in French oak barrels, divided equally between new, second use and third use. There is some more freshness here compared with the 2015, and it's clean, precise and somewhat serious, quite surprising for this price level. It has some floral notes, a very balanced palate and very fine tannins. It has the profile of a wine that should develop slowly and nicely in bottle. 80,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in November 2017.

This is a focused and very polished malbec with dark berries such as blackberries and hints of black truffles and walnut shells. Full body, tight and focused with firm and silky tannins and a delicious finish. Drink or hold.
