Single-vineyard Malbec is a rarity from this appellation. This one, which is 100% varietal, offers aromas of fresh and dried green herb along with clove, as the fruit lurks in the background. The palate brings ripe but in-balance purple-fruit flavors that show a sense of elegance. It's a pretty interpretation of this variety.
