Winemaker Notes:
The fruit is hand-picked and fermented with native yeast before it is aged two years in a mix of French oak of different ages, and then another year in bottle. The Malbec shows notes of blackberries, warm blueberry pancakes, and maraschino cherries while being intensely layered with baking spices of clove, cinnamon, sage, licorice, and cedar. Light hints of orange peel, eucalyptus, white powdered sugar and red velvet cake dance around the core. The wine finishes with integrated earth components of soil, dry crushed leaves, and an animal quality that screams being alive.

When discussing terroir in Argentina, you have to look at Finca Adalgisa. This vineyard is over 100 years old and expresses both the long past and bright future of site specificity in Mendoza's Lujan de Cuyo. Decanter has taken a liking to the 2013 vintage, which is a relatively new release. Brown bag this wine a blind tasting and watch people's heads explode.

100% Malbec from their six-acre estate vineyard in Chacras de Coria, planted in 1916. The vineyard sits at an elevation of 3000 feet above sea-level; the soils are a mix of alluvial, sand, and loam.
