From Wine Advocate: The entry-level wine is called 2015 Malbec, even if it still has some 10% Tannat and 5% Syrah in the blend. The grapes come from seven-year-old vines that yielded 9,000 kilos per hectare, 100% from estate grapes. There is a smoky character that I believe comes from the skin of the grapes, which have a high impact from the sun—as with the higher altitude, the rays are much stronger and make grapes develop thicker skins. It made me think of a red from the Northern Rhône, mixing violets, bacon fat and great spiciness. The palate is medium-bodied with great freshness and intensity, terribly tasty. This is so easy to drink, it can be dangerous... One to buy by the case.
