Amancaya Malbec-Cabernet Gran Reserva 2013

Amancaya Malbec-Cabernet Gran Reserva 750ML 2013      
Sku: 13728

Amancaya, as its elder, presented an harmonious balance between the Argentinean and Bordeaux styles. A more fruity style coming from the higher percentage of Malbec. The word AMANCAYA is the native indian name of a flower of the Andes that you can find in the Mendoza area.

"Bright red-ruby. Subtle, fresh and wonderfully aromatic nose offers complex scents of redcurrant, blueberry, strawberry, tobacco, mocha, graphite, leather and cedar. Penetrating and claret-like, with superb delineation to the redcurrant and tobacco flavors. Perfectly integrated acidity and an intriguing herbal nuance give this wine a light touch. Finishes with tactile, dusty tannins and lovely lift and persistence. Offers compelling complexity and class for the price. This is actually the second wine issued by this joint venture between Lafite-Rothschild and Nicolas Catena: the 2007 flagship bottling had not yet arrived in the market at press time.

 Wine Enthusiast 90 points
(a 60/40 blend): Bright medium ruby. High-pitched, perfumed aromas of blackberry, cassis, crushed stone and spices. Dense, juicy and pliant, offering lovely purity to its black fruit and spice flavors. Finishes with suave, sweet tannins and excellent fruit persistence. Classy juice.

Wine maker notes
Deep purple-red color. Fruit driven wine, with appealing red and black cherry flavors, blackcurrant and plums with a hint of vanilla and cedar. On the palate it has a nice tannic texture, round and well-balanced.
