    "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 tightly-wound 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."

    "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."
