Vintage Notes
2004

The 2004 harvest featured the driest spring in five years, with normal budbreak, good healthy shoots, and no frost damage. This dry weather remained through the beginning of the summer, resulting in beautiful fruit development with average-sized clusters. It was a superb year for Malbec, which demonstrated even better intensity and concentration than the already great 2003 Malbecs. Late in the season, an unexpected Zonda (a hot, dry wind that comes down from the Andes, driving humidity down to 1% at times) hit our southwest vineyards. The heat wave was very localized and some blocks showed burn signs on the fruit and lost significant leaves. The blocks that were more protected from this wind were harvested two weeks earlier than the average historical dates showing good aromatic profiles and perfect ripeness.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Elegant, long and complex in the mouth, enjoy notes of cherry and fig jam as well as subtle dried fruit aromas. Secondary notes of coffee, tobacco, and delicate sweet spiciness arise and make themselves at home in the complex set of aromas. Topped off with a sweet lingering finish in the mouth.
