The 2019 vintage for Mendoza was a strong one and this is reflected in the 2019 Altocedro Ano Cero Malbec. It’s got beautifully fruit intensity, that although concentrated, has nice lift and freshness, which transfers over into its palate giving engaging freshness and brightness to the red and darker red berry fruit flavors. Beautifully balanced, this has the structure to go well with food but the fruit generosity to enjoy on its own. It is drinking nicely as we speak and its got enough going on to bring you back for another sip, be it now or later on.

A medium-bodied red with aromas and flavors of crushed red berries and lemons. Some chocolate at the same time. Smoky, too. Solid center palate to the whole thing. A year or two in the bottle will make it even better. Try after 2022.
Fresh and plush, with violet and wild berry aromas. Its brilliant purple color is indicative of its La Consulta terroir.
