Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and Nicolas Cantena Amancaya Gran Reserva Malbec Cabernet 2013

This wine from Mendoza in Argentina is made by a joint venture between Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) and the Catena family in Mendoza.  It’s a resounding success.  The blend is 60-70% malbec and 30-40% cabernet sauvignon, and sees a restrained 20% new oak.  In the glass, the wine is full bodied, with blackcurrant aromas and flavours, a gorgeous texture and long length.  Yes.  (Region: Mendoza, Argentina, Rating: Very Good, Drink: now to 2027)
