There is also a 2014 Single Vineyard Malbec San Pablo from their estate vineyard there, from the plot 14 to be precise, located at 1,480 meters altitude, a very cold place with sandy soils and limestone quite deep down that tends to produce floral and fresh wines, like this one, even though it was cropped from a somehow warm vintage. The wine is also powerful at 15% alcohol, keeping some six grams of acidity and coming through a little oaky as it fermented in brand new 225-liter French barriques where it underwent malolactic and 16 months élevage. This is a smaller lot and the oak is more noticeable, and it should show better after some more time in the bottle. But there is great intensity of flavors in the palate, it's a wilder expression of the grape, in a place that is extreme, a mixture of violets, graphite and Mediterranean herbs, spices with an exotic touch. Give it some time in bottle. Only 1,500 bottles were produced. It was bottled in one single lot in October 2015. Drink Date: 2017-2022. Score - 92+. (Luis Gutiérrez, robertparker.com, Dec. 30, 2016)
