Our Malbec Ultra 2014 is an outstanding exponent of this harvest, mostly dominated by floral, spicy, and elegant notes. This deep brilliant red-colored wine with purplish tones displays distinctive rich aromas. The nose has interesting spicy and floral notes -a clear expression of a cool year-intertwined with black fruit aromas reminiscent of blueberries and blackberries that show this variety's great typicity. Good structure and soft tannins call for a second glass. The finish is fresh, complex, and persistent with fruit notes and subtle spicy undertones of rosemary, thyme, and dry flowers.

Wine EnthusiastDeep, lush black-fruit aromas are warm and horsey. Tight and well built, this ripe Malbec tastes of toasty blackberry blended with chocolate. A smooth, balanced finish with lift and nothing overly heavy or oaky is fitting.

Wine SpectatorTaut and sinewy, with plenty of peppery notes to the red plum and spiced cherry flavors. Minerally details extend on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2018. 5,800 cases imported.
