From the heart of Mendoza, an up-and-coming region of superb culture, comes this wine, mystical and inky in nature. Ocaso succeeds in making 2007 a year of flavor. Subtle earth, jammy berries, a smooth mouthful to savor. Malbec, a frequent blending grape, earns its own expression in this bottle; whether with friends at a party, or a dinner more hearty, this will leave a lasting impression.
Has an intense ruby color and an enticing aroma of ripe plum and wild berries. Berry flavors are joined by accents of spice, chocolate and a hint of tobacco on the palate. The vibrant tannins give the wine a beautiful structure and an amazingly long finish.
Careful vineyard selection promotes the richness and complexity of this gem! Very toasty, offering aromas of mocha and spice. The flavors are deep and lush, with notes of raspberries, figs, plums and chocolate and a splash of coffee. A real treat with shell steaks grilled medium rare with shiitake mushrooms, center cut pork chops with glazed carrots and steamed asparagus, and parmesan encrusted tilapia with fresh cut green beans and orzo boiled al dente in chicken stock.
Shows an attractive deep purple color. Complex and powerful in the nose, this wine boasts an aromatic range of ripe black fruits and jams, perfectly assembled with spicy notes provided by the oak aging. Flavorful, dense and generous, it has an outstanding balance between structure and fruitiness that adds character, power, elegance and great length to this terrific wine.
