Ricardo Santos Malbec 2012

 

Ricardo Santos Malbec 2012. Very dark purple color, almost black. Medium plus nose shows menthol, mint, dried black fruit, blackberry, some earth tones from age, like old cedar, forest floor, sour plum. Palate shows big fruits and smooth structure, dried black fruit layers, then the age comes through with nice compote, game, mushroom. The finish brings more aggressive tannins than came on at first, showing structure, medium acidity, medium plus alcohol. Also showing better with air/time, should have decanted.

The winery is located in Russell, Maipú, 20km South of the city of Mendoza, one of the first and most traditional vine-growing regions in Argentina. It is surrounded by old vineyards and from its terrace the view is outstanding: both the Cordón del Plata, a ridge with peaks of 4000 to 5000 m.a.s.l., and the Tupungato mountain (6570 m.a.s.l.) can be enjoyed.

It was built in 2005. Its design considered production and aging functions to obtain our wines of the best quality.

These products are reached by a combination of the above-mentioned functional design with the best up-to-date technology in the equipment to receive, crush, and press the grapes along with the fermentation and storage of our wines.

The winery’s total capacity is 700.000 liters, both in stainless steel and concrete tanks, besides two air-conditioned chambers for 300 oak barrels.
