The harmonic blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec and Merlot grapes represents the singular bond between nature and the passion of our people. Privada was originally reserved for the Swarovski family, they are now delighted to share it with you.

Ruby red color of remarkable intensity. Excellent aromatic complexity with notes of ripe fruit and a fine touch of smoke and coffee. Rich on the palate with an excellent concentration.

Reviews:

"An ambitious style, with very bold licorice, fruitcake and spice aromas giving way to richly layered blackberry, raspberry ganache and linzer torte notes. The long, toasty finish has plenty of fruit in reserve. Malbec, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Drink now through 2011. 600 cases imported. –JM" -Rated 91, Wine Spectator

"Good but a step down from recent vintages. Big and brawny on the nose, with oak-based aromas of shoe polish, chocolate mint chips and mocha. The thick palate is deep, raisiny and chunky, with roasted black fruit flavors touched up by chocolate. Very good and likable, but not as thorough and alluring as it has been. 40% Malbec with 30% each Cabernet and Merlot. — M.S. (8/1/2010) — 88 " -Rated 88, Wine Enthusiast

" Pungent oak over cassis, graphite and licorice on the nose. Rather exaggerated dark fruit and licorice pastille flavors along with an herbal greenness that builds with aeration. Finishes with a hint of bitter chocolate and a slightly minty dryness." -Rated 87, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
