The long awaited fourth release of our Argentinian blend is here. AR-6 is comprised primarily of Malbec, with a small percentage of Cabernet Sauvignon in the mix.
The unique climate of the Uco Valley in Mendoza produces Malbec with concentrated berries that reflect the brilliance, depth, and intensity of the neighboring Andes themselves. The Cabernet Sauvignon increases complexity and adds dimension, bringing the blend around full circle.
An immediate aromatic mélange of dark plums, ripe briar fruits, rich soil, and fir trees present themselves on the nose —in essence, a high mountain cooking pit of smoked fruit.
On the palate, similar dark fruits carry through and are complemented by flavors of dried fruit, fig compote and marmalade. Textured on the finish, a long chain of tannins lingers for what seems to be an endless time, with a hint of fresh tartness.
