The Uco Valley is located 30 miles to the south, southwest of the city of Mendoza. Altitudes range from 3,700’ to 5,000’ elevation. The Uco Valley has a shallow soil profile with a sandy – silt texture. This soil profile produces Malbecs with intense floral aromatics, dark fruit flavors, rich texture and a bright, fresh finish – mountain soil Malbec. The wine is aged for 6 months in French oak, 5% new.
- Dark red
- Very aromatic nose of blue fruits and characteristic violets. Aromatically it jumps out the glass and is very attractive.
- The palate is medium bodied and the darker fruit profile is met with oak and tannins that seem to want time to integrate. The palate also has some earthy minerality in the back. Youthful and approachable, fun rather than serious, the medium bodied nature of this wine is quite attractive and it is clean
