www.vinodelsol.com (USA importer)
A 90% malbec from Altamira distric of San Carlos Departament, Uco Valley, Mendoza.
Only a dash of petit verdot and cabernet franc. Quite impressive and seductive red showing all the Altamira´s beauty to a malbec.Bunches of ripe and round fruits, mostly black berries and plum. Good oak to it but not over the top.It reaches the point of impressive expression without overexpression, although this is somehow personal for sure. A 94 point malbec now and ready for a couple points more in a few years. Probably best at 4-6 y/o. A great value and one of the top for sure.
