Always a great wine, the 2016 AR Guentota is truly exceptional. As with all of their wines, AR Guentota comes from the Belasco family's 100+ year old vineyard. Farmed and crafted to express the more elegant side of the winery, AR Guentota has the most finesse and complexity of the Belasco lineup. A rich but polished malbec with a creamy texture in spite of the generous tannins. Intense and complex bouquet with red and black fruit notes (blueberry, blackberry, etc.). Well balanced, elegant and persistent aftertaste. A ton of bitter chocolate and a herbal-liqueur character. The long finish is nicely dry.
