'Liquid poetry.' These are Pedro Aznar's words for wine - one of his two great passions in life. After forging a wildly successful music career, he met his current collaborator and business partner, Marcelo Pelleriti. Marcelo learned winemaking from his grandfather, and has crafted the highest scoring wines in Argentina's history. This bottle's resplendent aromas, lyrical flavors and glorious finish unfold across the palate like classic lines of verse. The wine provides a decadent experience that a true devotee won't want to miss.

Score: 99
The aromas in this wine spin your head with spices, wet earth, minerals, slate, black licorice, and stones. Full body, with incredible depth of fruit and texture. I am lost for words. The grapes were cold fermented together and then fermented, macerated and aged in oak. Yet it's all terroir and fruit. Made by the winemaker of Monteviejo Marcello Pelleriti and Pedro Aznar, a well-known Argentine rock star. Drink or hold.
