Manos Negras, Malbec
Deep blackish colour and dark fruit flavours while the cool mountain nights produce violet aromas and a soft, supple texture. 9 months in oak adds a bit of weight.

Plum, maraschino-cherry, orange-zest and vanilla aromas. It’s medium-to full-bodied with fine-grained tannins and a succulent, fleshy palate. Drink now. 91 Points, JS, March 2021.
