Deep red color with violet hues. It expresses a great fruity character with notes of red fruit. A wine of grand structure and acidity. Mineral with notes of wet stone and graphite. Long finish.

REVIEWS
97 POINTS - "Within the Piedra Infinita vineyard they look for the soils that have some 30 to 50 centimeters of soil before getting to the limestone, so the ripening is more harmonious and the palate gains in volume and shows some meat before getting to the chalky, limestone tannins. It really improves with time in the glass and in this vintage it seems to combine elegance with length; there is more texture and, in fact, it feels built around texture and acidity. I think this is a real triumph over the natural conditions of the year. This is what the people who ask what comes after Malbec should get: expression of a place through the grape. Don't look for any smoky or toasty notes here. The effect of the oak is really imperceptible in the aromas. Bravo!"
