Hand of God is Santiago Achaval's (Achaval-Ferrer) new wine venture and the name references the infamous World Cup goal scored by Diego Maradona in 1986. This blend of Malbec, Syrah and Petit Verdot opens with violet, blueberry and graham cracker aromas. It's snappy and tight as a drum, with hard tannins and sharp acidity. Flavors of blueberry, cassis and boysenberry are lively and finish with spice and chocolate. Drink from 2014–2019.
