Tasting notes
Intense aromas of fresh plums and cherries are harmoniously balanced by subtle notes of rose and sweet spices and mild hints of caramel, vanilla, and mocha. A full-bodied wine with concentrated fruit flavors, a balanced acidity and a velvety texture. Sweet tannins linger through the persistent, long finish.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Oct 2012)
The 2010 Ruca Malen Petit Verdot is from Agrelo in Lujan de Cuyo from vines planted in 2000 with malolactic in stainless steel and then aged for twelve months in 80% French and 20% American oak. It has a light blueberry and dark plum bouquet that offers a touch of black olive. The palate is medium-bodied with a chewy entry, dense powdery tannins but fine precision on the sappy finish with touches of white pepper. This is a good effort towards a tricky grape variety. Drink 2013-2018.

Food pairing
Pairs perfectly with roasted red meats and sharp, aged cheeses.
