The Angulo Innocenti Malbec shows the beautiful
expression of La Consulta cool climate Malbec. With a dark, opaque
purple color, very typical of the La Consulta terroir. The wine also
shows the freshness, balance and mineral undertone that has
made this area so appreciated for Malbec.

Plenty of dried berry and grapy character with firm tannins and a citrus undertone. Medium to full body. Attractive acid and tannin structure. Drink now.

Ripe and fruit-driven, offering blueberry, dark cherry and earth notes on a fresh, mineral-tinged frame. Drink now. 6,000 cases made.-NW

Bright, dark red. Aromas of crushed blackberry, pepper, violet, woodsmoke and dried herbs reminded me a bit of Syrah. At once glossy and sappy in the mouth, offering smooth flavors of blackberry, cassis, pepper and game. Finishes with very fine-grained tannins, good grip and subtle lingering perfume. I like this wine’s restrained sweetness.

The opaque purple-colored 2012 Malbec is a big (14.5% natural alcohol), 1,800-case cuvee that spent time in both neutral tanks (50%) and oak (50%). It reveals some spicy oak notes along with a big, sweet kiss of blackberry and black raspberry fruit as well as hints of camphor and white flowers. The complex aromatics are followed by a medium to full-bodied, lush, opulent Malbec to enjoy over the next 4-5 years, perhaps longer.
