"Powerful, with hints of elegance to the refined dried raspberry and cherry flavors, supported by fresh acidity and firm tannins. Hot stone and spice details show on the savory finish. Malbec and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2022." Wine Spectator


97 Points - James Suckling
"The complexity and intensity are there from the outset with notes of vivid blackcurrants, charcoal, ash, dark plums, creme de cassis, roasted herbs, spices and tons of violets. The palate is pure velvet and fruit with tightlywound yet immaculately-structured tannins, which are carried to the long, long finish by ever-flowing acidity. Stunning. From 2,000-meter-high vineyard. A blend of malbec, cabernet sauvignon and merlot. Drink in 2022." James Suckling


Rich, dark violet in color with a nose of dark chocolate, berry, plum and herb. Explosively rich on the palate with long, structured tannins.

Chañar Punco is a unique sub-region surrounded by the Quilmes Mountains, located southwest within the Calchaquí Valley. At over 2000 meters above sea level, this terroir displays unique characteristics. Poor, rocky and calcareous soil combined with the scarce heat load, radiation, in the months prior to harvest, allows the grape to slowly develop its maximum expression.

A field blend of the best selection. Pre-fermentative macerations are carried on at 7°C, and native yeasts are used for the alcoholic fermentation. Before malolactic fermentation each variety is racked into new French oak barrels of 225 liters where the fermentation process is carried on and aged during 18 months. The blend is defined after an intense selection of the best 8 barrels. Bottled without stabilization and filtration in order to maintain the essence of the wine.

Order 4x Bottles and the wine comes presented in Wooden Case.
