« The 2008 La Violeta is the sophomore release of their flagship pure Malbec raised in the same way as La Violette in Pomerol and is bridled with 15.5% alcohol. It has a heady, opulent bouquet that, dare I say, reminds me of its Pomerol counterpart in its youth. It offers a smorgasbord of ripe red cherries, creme de cassis, vanilla and blueberry jam all wrapped up in creamy new oak. The palate is full-bodied with plush velvety tannins and low acidity. Everything here is beautifully intermarried with new oak melted into the texture. It is decadent and sumptuous and will appeal to hedonists and classicists alike. » (Wine Advocate 2012 - Robert Parker)

About this wine : Much like the previous vintage of La Violeta, this is a fabulous Malbec with depth, density and power to spare. The bouquet yields marzipan, cola, fine leather, char and rich berry aromas. That sets up a palate with impeccable structure and huge flavors of beef jerky, mocha, black fruits and spice. The finish is massive and loaded, with licorice and mocha flavors.
