Navarro Correas, Colección Privada Malbec
Colección Privada Malbec

 

Tasting Notes: One of the great estates of the New World, Navarro Correas was founded in 1798, when Don Juan de Dios Correas planted vines in the Andes near Mendoza. Since then, Navarro Correas became an icon, and a major U.S. brand (before being sold, removed from the market in 2015). With huge investments by new owner Grupo Peñaflor, Navarro Correas is now back, better than ever! With vines at a stunning 900m, and as old as 100 years, Colección Privada Malbec has complex aromas of soy sauce, sage, leather and mocha, and a supple, succulent palate energized by its high-altitude acidity.
