Chuck Wagner of Caymus
(where this great Malbec is made) says:
style' of Mendoza Malbec. Definitely an iron fist in a velvet glove. Rich fine
tannin - a Mendoza dust fine texture. There is a very refined character to this
wine, which is special and singular. This wine is unfined and has
already thrown a bit of sediment, representing the rich and natural
concentration of abundant quality. A dense, dark red, this wine
opens up with the scent of ripe plums and cherries, layered with hints of dark
chocolate. On the palate, it is powerful, concentrated, supple and persistent,
with generous flavors of French oak that support but don’t dominate. The wine
carries through to a complete finish, balanced and integrated with soft tannins
that imbue it with both structure and balance.
Perhaps the biggest wine –
and definitely the biggest value – in the Wagner Family portfolio.
