Deep and dense ruby/purple. Lavish aromas of black and blue fruit, accented by chocolate, mint and briary herbs. Voluptuous and silky on entry, juicy blackberry fruit and blueberry compote mingle with creamy oak and spice. Tightly wound on the finish, this beautiful Malbec finishes with finesse and will hit its full stride over the next decade.
There is a new Malbec from the Primeras Viñas range, the 2015 Primeras Viñas Malbec Gualtallary, showcasing the floral and perfumed personality and the subtle minerality from this place in Valle de Uco where these vines were planted ungrafted in 2006-2007. This has a pinch of Petit Verdot that is really unnoticeable. This aged exclusively in one 4,000-liter oak vat, which respected the wine and is not noticeable at all. This is simply superb.
