Notes From The Winemaker:
With Finca Bella Vista our goal is to allow the vineyard to express its “terroir”. Malbec is the flagship red variety from Argentina. It has found in Mendoza its true home. We work as hard as necessary during eleven months in the vineyard, to produce grapes that will need very little intervention during the winemaking process. The climate, the viticulturural program, the irrigation management: Everything is thought as a step towards the goal of true expression of the vineyard. Finca Bella Vista´s personality shines through the wine, vintage after vintage, with a recognizable and repeated signature. Fermentation took place in a small tank. At dryness, the wine was pressed and racked into French oak barrels, 100% new, where it was then aged for 15 months.Bottling: On Augus 10th, 2010 unfined and unfiltered.
All our wines are bottled without fining or filtering. There is additional risk in this, but we prefer not to stripe the wine of subtle flavors and aromas. The formation of deposits in the bottle will be noticeable after some cellaring time. This is no way affects quality. We strongly recommend decanting this wine at least an hour before drinking.

98 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The 2009 Finca Bella Vista was sourced from a vineyard planted in 1910 giving a miserly yield of 0.75 tons per acre. It displays slightly blacker fruit, a bit more depth and opulence, and a finish that seems endless. Give it 5-6 years of cellaring and enjoy it from 2016 to 2029+." - Jay Miller (Dec 2011)

93 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This delivers piercing aromas of violet and anise, backed by racy black licorice, blackberry and boysenberry fruit that courses along with graphite, black tea and mineral notes. The superlong finish has nicely embedded acidity. Drink now through 2015. 980 cases made." –JM (Oct 15, 2010)
