$19.95
WA92

Lunlunta is the deep violet of night lit by a waning moon. 2017 was a ripe year, so this also boasts the warming light of a little more alcohol than vintages past, but it keeps its poise and harmony intact. Rich with blueberries and blackberries wrapped in leather, this is a classic Malbec to pair with good friends and grilled meats. The long finish with supple tannins and flinty minerality will get your evening off to the right start.

Wine Advocate:
The 2017 Appellation Lunlunta Malbec is from a slightly riper year and has higher alcohol and a little less acidity. But the wine keeps its poise and harmony, showing very classical, perfumed and with volume. Power and elegance. 34,800 bottles were filled after 12 months in oak barrels.
