Viejo Isaias Malbec Clasico
Viejo Isaias
Argentina - Mendoza    - Lujan de Cuyo   

From the lowest parcels, with the deepest loam and clay. The coolest site with fastest draining.

Vibrantly red, with blue and purple glints. It has complex aromas of plum and ripe fruit, evoking dry fig. In the mouth it is velvety and long, with a rich aftertaste, full of fine, sweet, ripe tannins.
