"The 2015 Rubus Icono Malbec is one of the varietal brands selected from various countries by US importer Kysela. This is a Malbec from ten-year-old vines in Altamira in the Valle de Uco that matured in 225-liter French barriques for one year. It has notes of dark fruit, good ripeness and generous spices from the oak. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with some grainy tannins, powerful but without excess. 12,000 bottles produced. - Luis Gutiérrez"
