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."

Wine & Spirits 92 "YEAR'S BEST ARGENTINE MALBEC. BEST BUY. Winemaker Jimena Lopez is a sweet, soft-spoken young woman, but her wine from Graffito, her personal project, has the opposite personality. This is an impetuous red, a wild version of the grape, with flavors of blackberry and black pepper

Graffito Malbec 2013
90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "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

Wine Advocate 90 "The 2012 Malbec from Perdriel has an addition of around 20% grapes from Tupungato. The wine shows very good integration of the oak and fresh aromas of red and black cherries with some violets and an incredible fresh palate, especially for a vintage like 2012. The wine is fluid,
