Tasting Note

Almost black appearance.  Concentrated blackcurrant, damson and black cherry fruit, with complex nuances of black olives, savoury herbs, charred padrón pepper and cream.  Classic Bordeaux flavours and structure, although it does not come across as quite so dry.  Velvety, succulent and gorgeous - fabulous wine!

Winemaking

From high-altitude (1,250m) vineyards in the Uco Valley, with a portion from the lower-altitude (800m) districts of Russell and Maipú. Extreme day-night temperature variation in the highest vineyards fixes fabulous freshness in the wine, and exposure to ultraviolet light ensures concentrated colour. The component from the lower, warmer vineyards contributes richness, roundness and body.

Food Recommendation

Serve with roasted lamb, game or stews. Also combines beautifully with mushroom dishes and hard cheeses.

Press

  • 97/100 - A wine with beauty and elegance with power. Rose petal, currant, berry and sandalwood character.Full body yet so refined and beautiful. Such a polished texture. Goes on for minutes. A fantastic red to follow the excellent 2011.

  • 93/100 - Given my 16-month tasting cycle, I sometimes get two vintages of the same wine to taste, and that was the case this time with the 2012 Iscay Malbec Cabernet Franc. 2012 was warmer than 2013, and the blend was still Malbec from Los Árboles and Cabernet Franc from Cruz de Piedra in Maipú. It's a serious, earthy and ripe blend, riper than the 2013 I tasted next to it. It keeps good freshness, the tannins are elegant and the wine is balanced.
