The pure expression of Las Compuertas Malbec

Vintage Notes
2006

The 2006 crop year proved to be a greatly expressive one because weather conditions during blooming stage had a great impact on yield per hectare. Healthy grapes, thanks to a dry weather and high temperatures, reached their best ripeness level, turning into sophisticated and complex wines.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A rich combination of black fruits like candied cherries and sweet plums and fresh sweet vanilla spices stand out in this near-perfect Malbec, with a harmonious bouquet recalling buttery, toasty, and brioche notes. A rounded, generous and elegant mouthfeel. Excellent balance struck between acidity and tannins, announcing a wine with great personality.
Ratings
Wine Advocate - 91 pts “The purple-colored 2006 Malbec Afincado Single Vineyard was sourced from a parcel planted in 1929. It displays a bouquet of pain grille, graphite, violets, black cherry, and plum. Elegant on the palate, it has plenty of rich flavor, good grip, and a lengthy, fruit-filled finish. Give it 3-5 years of additional cellaring and drink it through 2020” Jay Miller
