"A red with dark berry and spice character. Some earth, too. Medium to full body, firm and silky tannins. Flavorful and juicy."

"The 2016 Malbec is from the same vineyards as the 2015 and is produced in more or less the same way. So, what I saw was the effect of the cold and rainy 2016 vintage, which produced fresher wines, with less alcohol. 2016 was an extraordinary vintage with a lot of rain, and it was a year that pushed many for a change of style, a year to learn. Lpez did shorter macerations and used less oak, and it shows in the wine. Quite a change and a step up from the 2015 I tasted next to it. Here, the wine comes through much fresher than the 2015, and it has floral and fruit notes."~Luis Gutierrez
About Graffito
"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."
