In this vintage, it's truly 100% Malbec that fermented in tank with full clusters and finished fermenting after pressing, without skins. It's serious and elegant, with the year's signature freshness. 2016 has really marked the wines with great freshness. This is serious and with zero sweetness, complete and direct. 42,000 bottles produced.- LG

Plenty of cocoa powder as well as violets follow through to some serious tannins that are already well integrated. They and the crisp acidity give the dry finish some assertive power. Drink or hold.

Beautiful on the palate as well, with medium to full body, supple tannins, and terrific balance, this is one of those wines that grows on you with time in the glass and shines on all accounts. Drink it any time over the coming decade or more.

Lively black fruit aromas are accented by pepper and violet notes. In a juicier, leaner style than the 2015 version but still a seamless wine, offering noteworthy intensity and purity and a sexy touch of sweetness to its flavors of black fruits, bitter chocolate and violet. This wine currently shows less dimension than the 2015 version but it still needs another year or two in bottle to expand. Finishes with a light dusting of tannins and lingering notes of violet and chocolate. -- Stephen Tanzer
