91 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - January/February 2009

($43; 50% tempranillo, 30% malbec and 20% merlot) Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, licorice and chocolatey oak on the nose. Rich, lush and pliant in the mouth, with a compelling sweetness to the flavors of black raspberry, licorice and sexy oak. One of the better wines I've tasted to date from this producer-and a worthy sibling to the 2004 Alfa Crux Malbec, rated 90 last year. Finishes with substantial broad, sweet tannins.
