SAM-1396. 12 NOEMIA A LISA ALTO VALLE DEL RIO NEGRO RED
Wine & Spirits 93: ‘While this wine opens up in a decanter, broil some steaks, as it’s a malbec that requires some patience.

This comes from a vineyard planted in 1932 in Mainqué, in Río Negro, which Noemía bought shortly after settling in Patagonia in 2001. It’s now the basis of some of the winery’s best wines.’

It is more classical and balanced, with subtle notes of spices and ripe red and black fruit. In the palate, fruit and wood are still in the process of integrating, so I’d wait one more year before pulling the cork.
