Santa Faustina Dautor Malbec Syrah Argentina 2004

Member Review by Phillipe Nash:

D'Author is a wine that represents the fulfillment of two great grapes of Mendoza, the famous Malbec and Syrah which also manifests itself with full integration into Terroir. The wine that draws up the winemaker Graciela Reta (famous internationally for its pioneering experiments with varieties like Syrah, Tempranillo, Bonarda and Torrontes), who received awards listed in tastings around the world. Author D 'is his masterpiece, is otherwise considered as a prodigal son.
