From a parcel of Malbec that is planted at 6,666 plants to the hectare (about 2.5 acres), this is such a concentrated wine. With powerful and brooding tannins, it is structured and richly endowed with black fruits. The natural acidity of the Malbec is enhanced by the mineral character coming from the stony soil. Drink this young wine from 2019.
