    September 26, 2021 - A week made wine with plenty off life left in it, purple fruits, savory notes, fresh acidity.

    February 2, 2021 - Purchased on honeymoon in Argentina in 2008. Held up well to 13 years of cellaring here. Pretty amazingly deep and complex wine. Layer in the meaning and history and this was a fun memory and experience.

    November 28, 2020 - Simply stunning. A great example that wine does not have to cost you an arm to offer a show stopping experience! In perfect place right now, this wine aged flawlessly into elegant, complex and over all just purely pleasurable wine. Super lovely!

    October 3, 2020 - A wine that probably started with very good intentions but time has not really put it on the path of greatness. 34% old vine Malbec, 32% Merlot, 22% Cab Sauvignon and 12% Cabernet Franc that sees 38% in new oak for 13 months.
    All perfectly programmed yet at this stage lacks a charm and a beauty. 87

    August 18, 2020 - Good, but a little muddy. Soft tannins and full mouth feel. The Bordeaux style blend works well.
