Agrelo is a village famous for the quality of its soils and vineyards. The Cabernet and Malbec from here, in particular, is delicious, often times with a nicely rounded, soft quality to the tannins, which makes for especially elegant wines. Naoki's vineyard contains calcified marine fossils, lending freshness to the wine. That said, perhaps more than anything else it is the sumptuous wild plum fruit and violet floral notes which really seem to define this delicious bottle of Malbec.
