"The 2013 Malbec from Graffito is sourced from an old Perdriel vineyard planted in 1908 and blended with some grapes from Tupungato. 60% of the wine is aged in French oak barrels for one year. It feels a bit oaky at first, but there is a nice core of fresh, high-toned fruit (is it Tupungato, 2013 or both?), and the floral notes so typical from Malbec (when it's not too ripe). The palate is medium-bodied, with very accessible soft tannins and great acidity that makes you salivate while longing for the next sip. This is more complex than what it might seem at first. Very good value and a good introduction to Malbec."~Luis Gutierrez

"Over the last 15 years, Jimena Lopez developed a very personal set of fine winemaking principles: use great fruit from old vines in a special location, handle all the winemaking steps herself, and put her stamp of approval (a thumbprint) on the label. Jimena's lifelong plan has been to craft a wine using these principles, so when she came across the 7-acre, Cantella vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo farmed entirely by Don Pepe and his family, she finally put her plan into action. This low yield Malbec vineyard planted by his father in 1908 produces small, intense berries that produce a wine not only with deep dark color, like graffito, but also amazing concentration, complexity and structure.

Jimena believes that good winemaking is simple winemaking. It starts in the vineyard with quality grapes. Beyond this, she believes in 3 key principles to make great wine: know-how, obsession for details, and above all passion."~Distributor Notes
