WA 94 Pts WE 90 Pts (Cellar Selection) -Winemaker Notes - Deep bright red color with purplish hints. Aromas and flavors of plum, full of red fruit jam, red fruit compote, vanilla, and chocolate. Well-balanced and integrated tannins.
According to the Wine Advocate - The flagship 2007 Malbec Matilde was sourced from the same estate vineyard as the Gran Reserva, but from a particular parcel, with aging for 24 months in new French oak. This loaded effort displays more obvious (but well-integrated) oak, soaring aromas of black cherry, black raspberry, and exotic spices, full body, and a plush, velvety palate feel. Underneath all that flesh is enough ripe tannin to support another 6-8 years of evolution, so this suave effort will be at its best from 2018 to 2027, if not longer. rated 90+
