The 2020 Malbec Tintonegro Limestone Block is mixed with 12% Cabernet Franc, both from Los Chacayes, Uco Valley, where the vines grow in rocky, sandy soils with traces of calcium carbonate. Aged for 12 months in 15% new used oak. It is an intense, reddish purple. The 2020 offers rather liqueur-like aromas and hints of plum and thyme over an attractive violet backdrop. Juicy in the mouth, the fine, chalky tannins vie for dominance initially before lending a pleasant shape to the flow. The flavor is intense and sustained, leaving a touch of fruit behind at the end.
