(a 60/40 blend; just 10% new oak): Bright, full, deep ruby. Aromas of blackberry, licorice, violet, minerals and toasted marshmallow show an exotic liqueur-like quality. A penetrating, youthfully tight bomb of dark fruits, with black cherry, blackberry, cassis and boysenberry flavors framed by strong acidity. This very firmly structured wine is almost astringent today and should be cellared for at least a couple years. Serious wine for the price.
Can't imagine a better Malbec.

After savoring two more bottles I can officially say this wine is even better the second day. Just enough air with the cork in tight to add more depth to the flavors, a little more seamless integration, I believe. Still great right out of the bottle but if you have 2, 4 or more hours to decant, I most definitely would. You'll be rewarded nicely.
