Tacuil, 33 D Dávalos Malbec Cabernet Sauvignon, Valles Calchaquíes, Argentina 2011
17.5/20pts (91/100pts)
Grown at the impressive altitude of 2,600m, this is monumental. A blend of 80% Malbec and 20% Cabernet, this is concentrated and rustic, but with layers of fruit. Profound and deliciously
complex.
