The property is situated in the township of Lujan de Cuyo, on a gentle slope at about 800 meters above sea level, facing the Andes range in the East, protected westward by a minor geological fold. The estate's total area is 206 hectares, 45 of which planted. The only varietal planted is Malbec, clones are obtained from careful field selection. The vineyards have a density of over 4,000 plants per hectare, and were planted between 1996 and 1999, free of root stock and raised with the guyot method. At the heart of the property stands the 2,000 square meter cellar with its capacity for 16,000 hectolitres plus approximately 900 hectolitre capacity in small oak. Completed in 2001, the cellar was designed to have minimal impact on the territory, respecting the local traditional architecture. Inside, however, it is designed to achieve the very best technical conditions, such as temperature control, hygienic impeccability and a streamlined functionality with respect to all wine making processes. Indeed, sobriety and functionality have been our guidelines in every respect. Read less

A little heat in the nose still, fairly plain, lacking depth, however its nice and juicy with some moderate tannins that creep up on you. Licorice and medicinal finish - generally my sign of over ripe fruit. However, when you take the cost into account its perfectly decent.
