The 2006 Clos des Andes is 100% Malbec sourced from an 80-year-old vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo and aged for 12 months in 50% new French oak. Dark ruby/purple in color it offers up an alluring bouquet of pain grille pencil lead spice box and black cherry. This leads to a wine with excellent density layered fruit and spicy black fruit flavors nicely concealing enough structure for 2-3 years of further development. This rich well-balanced effort will be at its best from 2010 to 2019.

Black fruits and licorice on the nose; a bit inkier and less expressive than the basic Clos des Andes. Then denser and deeper but less pliant in the mouth with sneaky sweetness nonetheless as well as a strong impression of minerality. Boasts more energy definition and structure than the basic cuvee and will require longer to open. There's less easy sweetness here but the tannins are suave and the finishing flavors mount impressively.

Deep purple core with a ruby rim. What a terrific perfectly aged release from Poesia! The bouquet is brooding and complex with beautiful dark fruit aromas along with tertiary notes of savory mushroom graphite cocoa cola... Deep purple core with a ruby rim. What a terrific perfectly aged release from Poesia! The bouquet is brooding and complex with beautiful dark fruit aromas along with tertiary notes of savory mushroom graphite cocoa cola all-spice and cherry liqueur. Deliciously spice-laden this delves further on the midpalate expanding into layered dark berry and cherry with a dusting of fresh-ground pepper. Mouthwatering acidity and smooth tannins provide great structure and a balance that carries through the elegant finish. With so much character to this beauty it can easily accompany a wide range of grilled or roasted fare. Enjoy now and over the next 3-5 years.
