2018 was not that different from 2017 in terms of temperature, but it was a little warmer than 2019. The red 2018 Tinto de la Casa was produced with Malbec—50/50 grapes from Las Compuertas and Gualtallary, fermented together with some full clusters in oak vats. It has an explosive and aromatic note with notes of flowers and herbs. The flavors are pungent and focused, with very integrated oak but with some spices, with fine-grained tannins, good complexity and depth. This is quite sophisticated and feels like a more expensive wine than it is. A bargain! 10,000 bottles produced. It was bottled in March 2019 after one year in oak vats.

Made with grapes from Gualtallary at 1,450 meters above sea level, this Malbec is fermented and aged in used oak. Elegantly made, it delivers a floral profile of lavender and violets over blackberry and plum notes. Intense in the mouth, it is constrained and pleasant, displaying a degree of chalk and good flavor. An upgrade on the classic Malbec profile with added freshness.
