Region: Lujan de Cuyo, Mendoza, Argentina
Varietal: 100% Malbec
Tasting Notes: Made under the Lujàn de Cuyo Controlled Denomination of Origin regulations (DOC), this Malbec is the result of select vineyard plots from Las Compuertas, Vistalba and Agrelo. The loamy, sandy and stony soil of this terroir located at the foot of the Andes Mountains give this wine a fruity character, roundness and structure. A bright violet-colored wine with aromas of sharp red fruit, reminiscent of ripe cherry. Spicy notes can be perceived, and slightly roasted hues evoke coffee. A round wine, rich in red fruity notes, that is also a little spicy on the palate. With firm tannins of balanced acidity, this robust red wine of great character vigorously fills the mouth with ripe fruit and offers a lingering and compact finish.
Pair with rack of lamb with sautéed mushrooms, or a rib-eye steak with quinoa risotto, and a semi-hard cheese platter.
