Deep and bright color that evokes its name. Ethereal rose petal incense and spicy perfume with a bass note of smoky earth and espresso. Juicy and medium-bodied with red currant and black pepper on the palate. Finishes with smooth, lush tannins, ripe acidity and good length. Food Pairing: The ultimate in steak wine. Try with grilled steak, bbq wings or smoked gouda.

Wine AdvocateThe 2016 Malbec is from the same vineyards as the 2015 and is produced in more or less the same way. So, what I saw was the effect of the cold and rainy 2016 vintage, which produced fresher wines, with less alcohol. 2016 was an extraordinary vintage with a lot of rain, and it was a year that pushed many for a change of style, a year to learn. López did shorter macerations and used less oak, and it shows in the wine. Quite a change and a step up from the 2015 I tasted next to it. Here, the wine comes through much fresher than the 2015, and it has floral and fruit notes. 20,000 bottles were filled in October 2017.
