    The 2020 GY is a blend of 65% Malbec and 35% Cabernet Franc from Gualtallary, Uco Valley and was aged in an old foudre. A vivid purple in color, the pure, expressive nose offers aromas of fresh plum and blackcurrant with hints of herb and violet and a whiff of jalapeño. In the mouth, it’s compact with finely grained, chalky tannins, verticality and tension. A wine bursting with lively expression.
