Attractive aromas of fresh raspberries and blackberries with a lightly herbal note, too. The palate has a very deep-set delivery of rich, plush, plum and berry flavors with smooth, long-form tannins. Deep, profound, plum-soaked finish with latent, toasted-spice warmth to close. Pleasure with interest.
I was very pleasantly surprised by the 2018 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec, a red from an underestimated/forgotten zone of Mendoza, where Malbec seems to be very expressive and floral. The grapes were picked reasonably early, and they fermented with 100% full clusters. Only half of the wine matured in oak. I already liked the two previous vintages, but in 2018, they selected cooler plots for this bottling, resulting in a fresher and more ethereal wine, with a captivating personality within the classical profile. Bravo for Lunlunta! (LG)
Bright red-ruby. Musky dark raspberry, licorice, espresso and flowers on the nose, plus a whiff of milk chocolate. Classically dry and fine-grained but also revealing a subtle creaminess in the middle, with its juicy raspberry and mocha flavors still showing a bit of medicinal reserve. The lingering, rising finish features terrific floral lift. These century-old vines produce low crop levels, and a couple of what winemaker Vigil describes as "special lots" from this vineyard also go into Catena's Malbec Argentino bottling. (ST)
Suave and well-spiced, with juicy richness to the zesty raspberry tart and plum pastry flavors, supported by medium-grained tannins. Chocolate and freshly ground nutmeg notes show on the finish. (KM)
