Vintage Notes
2002

The 2002 vintage can be considered exceptional for the red wines of the high area of Luján de Cuyo.
From budburst to veraison, this can be considered a normal year, with no frost problems and good number of vigorous buds. Flowering can also be considered normal and veraison was highly consistent since it occurred when expected.
Summer temperatures were mild and only reached high temperatures in some days in December and January which resulted in well-balanced grapes.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A fresh and complex fruit aroma, with remarkable cherry, raspberry, and currant notes. This Malbec boasts floral notes like lavender and violet, accompanied by fresh spicy hints of thyme and vanilla. Young, vibrant, well-structured and alluringly elegant in the mouth, this is a powerful and complex wine that will continue to evolve in an extraordinary way.

Juicy and fruit-driven, with lots of raspberry and blackberry flavors. Ample spice, cocoa and toast take the upper hand on the slightly firm finish, so cellar briefly to harmonize. Best from 2006 through 2008.

Corpulent, structured and very well-balanced. Tannins add a silky and soft sensation to the wine’s great volume and concentration...
