Community Tasting Notes 4

    September 7, 2021 - 91-92pts. 60% Malbec, 20% Syrah, 20% Cabernet Franc. Upon opening this bottle this smelled and tasted like a pure Malbec, but, as it mellowed with air, its Syrah and Cab Franc components became more prominent. Looking at my notes, I wrote down fig, plum, some tar and earth, coffee, and black cherries. It is a medium-bodied blend that possesses decent complexity, but not a lot of length. Good for everyday drinking, but a bit expensive for an Argentine wine of this pedigree.

    May 4, 2020 - Extremely closed out of the bottle. After three hour decant the nose showed signs of life but the palate did not match. On the nose black fruit (plum, cassis and blackberry), as well as strong notes of chocolate and mint. Full bodied, firm tannins, high alcohol and even with all of this the extreme acidity was noticeable and off-putting. Not overly flavourful there are hints of black fruit, pepper and mint. The finish disappoints as the acidity cuts the fruit flavours short.

    March 26, 2020 - nice malbec blend, darkfruit, but not heavy, good acidity to pair with food, could taste the cab franc greeness in a good way

    February 14, 2020 - Blend de Malbec, Syrah e Franc (60-20-20%) com 14m de estágio em barricas de carvalho francês de 1º uso e ovos de concreto (50-50%).

    Visual rubi de intensidade média-alta. No nariz geleia de frutas negras, especiarias (pimenta do reino), torrefação. Macio no palato, com acidez na medida e taninos firmes e gentis. Corpo médio+, boa intensidade gustativa (frutas e especiarias) e final longo, com café no retrogosto.

    Muito bom conjunto, mas perdeu intensidade no final, depois de 1:30h no decanter.
