Gary’s Notes: Sometimes I think it would be easier to discover where Jimmy Hoffa is buried than to dig up information on some of the South American wines Drew has brought into Carpe Vino recently. This wine is a good example.

What we do know is the Domingo Hermanos (Domingo Brothers) have been making wine at very high altitudes (upwards of 7,200 feet) since 1977. They own five labels and five vineyards.

Bottom line is this is another tasty Malbec at a great price that is exceptionally food friendly. End of story.

Winery Tasting Notes: A blunt wine with a strong personality that presents a dark scarlet color with purple tonalities, bluish, with a colored tear of great definition. The nose is impressive with a mixture of complex aromas where next to the variety’s aroma the most salient aromas are vanilla, chocolate, red ripe fruits and some plum compote or jam. The Mouth appreciates a full-bodied wine with good structure with an ample finish. Due to its complexity, this wine will reach its full potential between 3 to 5 years after its elaboration.
