The 2011 La Primera Revancha Malbec is a blend of Malbec grapes from different zones within Mendoza, Lujan de Cuyo and Altamira, with a small amount of Cabernet Franc, aged for one year in new, second and third-fill French oak barrels. It has strong balsamic aromas of peat, damsons and black cherries with a fresh note, perhaps from the Cabernet Franc, and a medium to full-bodied palate with very ripe, round tannins, good acidity, clean flavors and a powerful finish. A very good modern Malbec. Drink 2014-2018.
