"This wine is a blend of 50% Malbec, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon, 15% Cabernet Franc, and 15% Merlot. The soft tannin and fleshy, velvet mid palate integrates with a mineral driven finish of crushed wet rock, typical of Gualtallary. 1,000 cases produced." —importer
"Cropped from a cool and wet vintage, the 2015 Gene is a blend of 50% Malbec with 20% each Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc plus 10% Merlot from Gualtallary that aims to show the gentler side of the appellation, fresh with a soft texture. The grapes come from seven-year-old vines from Tupungato Winelands. The Malbec fermented in cement vats and the other grapes in amphorae and then matured in well-seasoned, neutral barriques for some ten months. This has a more commercial, accessible profile, though for the wider audience but keeping the electricity and minerality from Gualtallary. There is less oak than in previous vintages; the barrels are older and they are fine-tuning the process. Great balance between the more commercial and terroir side. 15,000 bottles were filled in May 2016." —Luis Gutierrez, The Wine Advocate
