"Complex aromas of orange peel, dark berries and hints of spices. A full-bodied, lovely and crafted wine with a long and caressing texture. A beauty already. Big improvement in quality with this wine."~JS
"Its deep purple color make this Malbec a true representative of wines from Vista Flores. This wine is distinguished by its aromatic complexity in which notes of red fruits like cherries, with ripe fruit, floral aromas of violets, vanilla and tobacco cigars stand out. The aromas extend to the palate, where black fruits such as blackberry with spicy notes are still present. Its medium structure gives a nice feeling of fullness in the mouth, while its silky tannins are in balance with an exquisite natural acidity that adds to a long finish."-Winemaker's Notes
"Finca el Origen is the Argentinean winery of the Carolina Wine Brands winery cluster, the fourth most important group in Chile volume-wise. Located in Vista Flores, at 1 200 m.a.s.l. (3 900 feet), our estate has a poor soil of an alluvial origin, deep and permeable, filled with pebble stone and sand, which allows the vine to grow with a perfect natural balance. Due to the high altitude, the vines receive a lot of sun exposure which, along with a continental desert climate with wide thermal amplitudes, contributes to the development of grapes with thick skins, rendering concentrated wines with very deep colors and explosive floral aromas. The mountain clean air and the thawing limpid water used to irrigate imprint a unique purity in our wines.
The Uco Valley is located at the foothills of the Andes mountain range. Millions of years ago, some parts of the mountain range were submerged under the sea, which explains the presence (at more than 1 200 m/3 900 ft.a.s.l.) of sea fossils like the ammonite, which represents us through our logo. They are considered silent witnesses of the origin of the Andes and today, by being part of our genuine terroir, are witnesses of the origin of our wines."-Winery Notes
Wow. Very good wine and GREAT for the price - I have had the best cabernets that you can possibly get and I became a fan of Malbec after getting the Voyage Red Schooner from Caymus. This is not a fruit forward as the Schooner but this is an excellent wine and for under 9 dollars, wow. Give it a try.
