Finca Adalgisa Malbec

2013

100% Malbec from their six-acre estate vineyard in Chacras de Coria, planted in 1916. The vineyard sits at an elevation of 3000 feet above sea-level; the soils are a mix of alluvial, sand, and loam.

The fruit is hand-picked and fermented with native yeast before it is aged two years in a mix of French oak of different ages, and then another year in bottle. Shows notes of blackberries, warm blueberry pancakes, and maraschino cherries while being intensely layered with baking spices of clove, cinnamon, sage, licorice, and cedar. Light hints of orange peel, eucalyptus, white powdered sugar and red velvet cake dance around the core. The wine finishes with integrated earth components of soil, dry crushed leaves, and an animal quality that screams being alive.

2012 Vintage also available in 1.5L!
