A red with lots of ripe fruit plus subtle hints of strawberry jam. Medium to full body, soft tannins. A tar and spice finish. Pure malbec planted in Uco's limestone soils. Beautiful texture. Drink now.

Bright medium ruby. Musky aromas of cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate, plus a touch of oak. Concentrated, bright, nicely delineated dark berry and smoky mineral flavors shows good sweetness for the year. Very round, seamless wine with no sign of heaviness or tiredness. Finishes tactile, broad and persistent, with firm but nicely buffered tannins. This very suave wine should provide considerable early appeal.

The 2014 Malbec Limestone Block is sourced from a single vineyard in the Chacayes zone that has stones covered in limestone, the characteristic that names the wine. It feels quite ripe, with some organic hints of soil intermixed with prunes and damsons. The palate is fresher and has some cherry flavors shaped by fine, chalky tannins and balanced acidity. 15,000 bottles produced.
