Old vines planted as far back as 1906 in the Luján de Cuyo produce this dark Malbec. Mendoza has some of the highest altitude vineyard sites in the world! Luján de Cuyo is 3,000 - 4,000 feet above sea level, keeping the normal heat of Argentina at bay. The wine is intense and ripe with notes of plum and violets. You'll also find oak notes of vanilla, smoke, and chocolate from 8-10 months of oak aging in both French and American oak barrels. What to eat with Malbec? Grilled Steak.
