The 2009 Lindaflor La Violeta is a luxury wine named after their Pomerol property La Violette. It is from their Malbec grapes in Tunuyan, Uco Valley, grown at 1,100 meters altitude and from selected bunches from two blocks that have lower natural yields from their vineyards. The grapes are hand-harvested and hand-destemmed, fermented in the most exclusive 225-liter French oak barrels money can buy (a majority of Darnajou, the only one they use for Le Gay in Pomerol, Saury Signature and Sylvan from very specific trees) with hand-pigeage where the wine aged for 36 months. This 2009 has a very ripe nose of plums, blueberries and cassis, with abundant earthy notes, denoting a warm growing season and very ripe fruit. The palate is full-bodied with moderate acidity, and fine-grained tannins, without reaching the sophistication of the tannins obtained in 2008. I had a preview of the recently bottled 2010, which is very promising. This is a real blockbuster Malbec. 4,500 bottles produced. Drink now-2020. - Luis Gutierrez, April 2014
