One of the findings in our report on The Diverse Wines of Argentina was how well Malbec works when blended with Cabernet Sauvignon. Malbec contributes flavor and a lush mouth feel, while Cabernet Sauvignon gives structure and elegance. This is confirmed in the Numina, a blend of Malbec (61%), Cabernet Sauvignon (21%) and smaller amounts of Merlot, Petit Verdot and Cabernet Franc, all from Salentein?s El Oasis vineyard. This well structured wine shows spicy, rich blackberry with a note of honeyed oak on the nose and offers a velvet-textured, refined palate that finishes with gripping, ripe tannins. Aged in French oak for 16 months.
