The aromatics are strikingly pure, with fresh aromas of raspberry, blackberry jam, framed by more earthy aromas of black pepper and espresso. The palate has a Northern Rhone impact, with rich fruit and meaty Syrah notes, layered with raspberries and blackberry jam. Powerfully dense with beautiful balance, this wine offers magnificent complexity and opulence.

Style: Full, Bold

Cam Confidential
Lot 262 2010 Mendoza Malbec is a combination of component wines that winemaker Sam and I put together from two Malbec programs, recently scoring 90 and 92 points by Robert Parker. Given that we had first look at the blending components, I like to think we would fall right into that range as well if not outperform. But we’ll let you be the judge. In comparison to Lot 275 Malbec, I think this wine is, again, a more “cracked open” style with riper fruit characteristics and a more open tannin structure with corresponding approachability.
