La Madrid Estate wines of Agentina

Tier 1 Cabernet 2017 - a single vineyard in Lujan de Cuyo (Agrelo), this wine exhibited velvet tannin, not as acidic as the other two with more structure and by far the best of the three tier one wine from this winery.

Tier 1 Malbec. Dark ruby color. French oak on the nose with bright acidity, juicy purple fruit. Winemaking style here emphasizes acidity more than tannin or structure.

Tier 1 Bonarda: Dark ruby color, birght acidity, more structure than the malbec.

Tier 2 Malbec. Chewier with more fruit and structure than any of the Tier 1 wines.

Tier 2 Cab Franc- Medium ruby, juicy red fruit, controlled acidity and nice structure.

Tier 3 Gran Reserva Malbec. Medium ruby, light spice on the nose as well as red fruit. Big, juicy and textural with notes of red plums.
