Decant this or open in advance, as it has a wave of reduction that is helped with airtime. From high altitude (980-1100 m) sites in Uco Valley's Paraje Altamira and Vista Flores, this Malbec is soft and generous on the palate, native fermented and spent 20 days on skins before concrete and oak aging. Deep purple/blue hued, this potent wine pulls fresh figs, ripe blueberries, blue plums, on a soft, cushioned palate. There's a nice detailing to the structure, though the overall feel is soft. Tannins are smoothed and nubby and acidity is moderate, making this an easy choice for someone looking for a well-made Uco Malbec.
