89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2008

($25; a 60/40 blend of bonarda and malbec) Bright ruby-red. Expressive nose offers boysenberry, fruitcake, licorice and mocha. Supple, broad and sexy, with the sweet fruitcake character following through on the palate. Not hugely complex but lush and enticing. Finishes with fairly soft tannins and very good length.
