TintoNegro Limestone Block Malbec 2014

SKU 45100


At an elevation of 4,000', at the very foot of the majestic Andes, soils have a marked limestone character - from patches of rocky surface soil to a shallow sub soil of round rocks. These Limestone Lots impart a mineral texture to the wines produced here. Malbec has a wonderful affinity for co-fermentation - vinifying with small amounts of Cabernet Franc intensifies Malbec's floral character while the limestone soil profile lends finely grained tannins.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Malbec Limestone Block is sourced from a single vineyard in the Chacayes zone that has stones covered in limestone, the characteristic that names the wine. It feels quite ripe, with some organic hints of soil intermixed with prunes and damsons. The palate is fresher and has some cherry flavors shaped by fine, chalky tannins and balanced acidity. 15,000 bottles produced.

Wine EnthusiastSmoky, spicy aromas are highly wood-driven, which creates hickory and campfire scents rather than discernible fruit. This feels a touch sticky and soupy, while baked, woody berry, black plum and cassis flavors are charred prior to a spicy, chunky finish.

Wine SpectatorVery peppery, with plenty of cherry tart and raspberry jam flavors, supported by crunchy acidity. Ripe and spicy on the finish. Drink now through 2019. 4,000 cases made.
