Earthy and leathery on first blush, with tobacco and jammy berry and bacony aromas. The palate is drawn and firm, with snappy wild berry flavors accented by softer earth notes and coconutty oak. Layered and chocolaty on the finish, with a good fade. 85% Malbec with 15% Cabernet Sauvignon; 200 cases made.
This small-production tribute wine hails from Salta. It’s a firm, thick wine with full-force plum, berry and caramel aromas and flavors. The finish is rich and saturated, and overall it’s a good, brooding wine with some class and style. Just 116 cases produced.
