«The 2006 Malbec Vista Flores Single Vineyard was aged in new French oak for 12 months and in a second set of new oak barrels for 24 months. A glass-coating opaque purple color, it exhibits a brooding bouquet with notes of exotic spices, sandalwood, incense, lavender, black cherry, and blackberry. Dense, layered, and voluptuous with the oak fully integrated, this lengthy effort mandates 5-6 years of cellaring and has a drinking window extending from 2015 to 2021. «
