Member Notes

A fantastic malbec of the highest order.
09/05/2008
by Spearfisher
Very impressive. This is a superlative archetype Malbec. A single varietal (100% malbec) from small select vinyards that follow the "terroir" ideal. Worth every penny. Great character. Full-bodied, fruit forward, plum and berries, oak, and spices. Great balance of fruit, acid, tanins. Great depth with a fantatic finish. Reminicient of a Brunello. Buy this wine when you find it, it's supply is limitted and fleeting at best.
