DiamAndes Gran Reserva 2008

DiamAndes Gran Reserva 2008

SKU 45188


A complex, alluring, intense and well-balanced blend. It is a genuinely Argentine, modern wine, with a touch of European elegance contributed by the owner of the winery. A wine that shines in the mouth! This vintage has good concentration and is very well-balanced, despite lower than expected yields. The dark color shows a fine concentration of fruit, producing rich, elegant wines. This elegance is due to higher than usual temperature variations: the average and high temperatures were above the median, while the low temperatures were lower than usual. With little rain (60% less than the historical average for the area), 2008 was a wine grower's vintage, enabling, with good management, the expression of all the vineyard's elegance and the natural characteristics of its terroir.

Wine AdvocateThe 2008 Diamandes de Uco Gran Reserva is a blend of 85% Malbec and 15% Cabernet Sauvignon aged in French oak for 20 months. A glass-coating opaque purple/black color, it offers up an impressive nose of mineral, earth notes, licorice, soy, espresso, black cherry, and black currant. Medium-bodied on the palate and surprisingly elegant, it reveals layered, spicy black fruit flavors, excellent concentration and volume, and enough structure to support several more years of cellaring. This lengthy offering will deliver peak drinking from 2013 to 2023.
