The 2013 Malbec Q is sourced from La Consulta (Altamira) and Vista Flores. This wine has changed since 2010; now only 30% to 50% of the wine is oaked and the rest is matured in cement vats. The oak is imperceptible, and there are plenty of aromas of violets and blueberries with some aromatic herbs, all fruit. What Sebastian Zuccardi looks for is to have some herbal/countryside aromas and a lively palate with good acidity, which is what you find here. This is really tasty, with a fine, chalky tannin (from Altamira?) and just plain great. Score - 91. (Luis Gutierrez, robertparker.com, Aug. 27, 2015)
This dry, full-bodied and woody red displays a complex and intense nose. On the palate, its lively acidity, fleshy tannins, and broad texture precede a long finish.
A blend of three unique vineyard sites. It shows red violet colour with bluish hues. Intense red and black fruits aroma with spicy, violet and chocolate nuances. Silky beginning with great structure, soft and mature tannins. Intense fruity flavours and a persistent finish.
