Wine Review: This midnight purple colored Malbec from Alta Vista is unique. It opens with a toasted coconut and oak bouquet with a hint of strawberry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied, slightly acidic and a bit savory. The flavor profile is a coconut influenced black plum with notes of flinty minerality. I also detected hints of nutmeg, oak and espresso. The finish is dry and its moderate dusty tannins stick around for a while. This wine benefits from decanting and aeration as it brings everything together. I would pair it with Italian beef braciole. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Deep violet with aromas reminiscent of spices, fresh ripe fruits and animal scents. In mouth, freshness, openness, soft tannins and long finish dominate. It is recommended to decant it and drink it cold, between 16º C and 18º C. Cellar time: over 8 years.
