This wine is produced from 100% Malbec sourced from various top sites in the Mendoza region. One of the world’s most in-demand wine consultants, Michel Rolland, who lists many top-notch Bordeaux, Napa and Italian names on his client roster, has a hand in the making of this wine. This 2009 has primary aromas of blackberry and black plum, with similar, intense fruit flavors on the palate, perhaps with a suggestion of red fruits intermingling. Polished, moderate tannins add structure and make this an ideal partner for many different dishes. Rotisserie chicken, a quickly grilled marinated tri-tip steak, pan-seared tuna and heartier vegetarian dishes all make terrific pairings. It also works beautifully as a casual sipper without food.
