Los Leones Cabernet Malbec Bodega Salentein Vino Tinto NV

Member Review by nyjeannie:

A delectable blend. My fiance and I are trying to track down a case for our wedding. We enjoyed our first bottle in Buenos Aires while overlooking a park on a roofdeck. Smooth, fruity and tasty with beef.

The magnificent bodega, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps.

The magnificent bodega, designed for both form and function in the shape of a cross, allows for customized gentle handling of the grapes, reducing the distance wine needs to be moved between winemaking steps. Each of the wings is a small winery with two levels-a ground level that houses stainless steel tanks and French wooden vats for fermentation and storage, and an underground level for aging wine in oak casks. The two levels allow wine to flow from the tanks to the barrels by a traditional gravity transfer system. The four wines converge in a circular central chamber.which resembles an amphitheater and was inspired by ancient classical temples. Read less

    I had the 2005 malbec/cab blend in Argentina a month or so ago and it was the best wine i had down there. Seemed smooth with a nice finish and it went well with steak, which is a necessity when you're in Argentina. Cost about $8 US for a bottle and I'm looking to import some to the states for my wedding this fall.
