Winemaking Notes: This 100% hand-harvested Malbec is from La Cautiva, a single vineyard high up in Gualtallary, Uco Valley. Whole clusters are foot-tread to start fermentation. Post-fermentation maceration lasts 2 month. The élevage is one year in a 3,000-liter foudre that was first used for the 2019 vintage and one more year in used 225-liter oak barrels. The winemaking process concludes with its gentle filtering and bottling.

Tasting Notes: The nose shows notes of blackberry, boysenberry syrup, blueberry, fresh baked bread, bergamot, cedar, with a hint of peppercorn. The palate is exploding with rich dark fruit, cedar, sage, and leather. This dense and bold wine has supple tannins and great acid. This can definitely age for awhile. Outstanding!
