The most expensive effort, but still a great value, is the 2012 Malbec Limestone Block. There are 500 cases of this wine that was aged nine months in French oak From a 4,000 foot elevation and very rocky soils, it tips the scales at a boisterous 14.5% natural alcohol. Its inky/blue/purple color is followed by a sweet perfume of crushed rock minerality, acacia flowers, blackberries and cassis as well as a hint of vanillin. This powerful, concentrated, impressively endowed Malbec should drink well for 5-7 years. "

Tinto Negro translates to "black wine" in Spanish, and is meant to represent the spirit of Malbec in Mendoza. Malbec has a wonderful affinity for co-fermentation vinifying with small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petite Verdot lends additional intensity and structure. Cabernet Franc adds complexity to Malbec's floral character while Petite Verdot lends finely grained tannins. The wine is aged for 12 months in French oak, 30% new.
