2012 Achaval Ferrer, Malbec (Mendoza, Arizona)
Very dark-colored with aromas of blackberries, a touch of red fruit, and hints of smoke and spices. It is quite intense.

Select grapes from the most noble vineyards and aged in two different types of wood. The first year is spent in French and Slovenian oak barrels allowing the wine to achieve balance. After completion, the wine is transferred into concrete tanks. The combination of concentrated and mature grapes undergoing fermentation at meticulously controlled temperatures, together with careful aging in a selection of different oak barrels, produces a wine that conserves incredible aging potential for which Brunello di Montalcino is famous.

2012 Rombauer, Zinfandel (Napa Valley)
