This is 90% old-vine Malbec with 10% Cabernet thrown in. The best one-word description is “awesome.” The 80-year-old Malbecvines is full of clove, licorice and marzipan nuances. The flavor profile offers berries, sweetmeat pie and maple syrup. The finish is huge but soft. The body is massive and concentrated, but entirely friendly. This is indeed a super Chilean in all senses of the word. Editors' Choice.
